in safari, two fingers tap on the top or bottom of the trackpad scrolls the page to either the very top or very bottom.

Wow. That's excellent.

It may only be a small thing, but that sounds like one of the best features so far. I would love to see something similar implemented on iOS.

I can't replicate this. But I have long had a similar setup with BetterTouchTool. If you don't have it, I strongly recommend it. Quite awesome and infinitely customizable.

Can anyone else confirm if this is native now?

I thought you had to two finger drag quickly from the top or bottom to do this. A two finger tap would be interesting!

Personally, the features alone for me wouldn't warrant an ugprade.. But because Mountain Lion is noticeably faster, and all the animation lag has been resolved It'll be a worth while upgrade..

I do like the notification & reminders features..

This isn't true. You probably have some type of gesture tool installed like BetterTouchTool.

I'm sorry if it's been mentioned already, haven't read the whole thread (skipped a few pages), but swiping back a page in Safari puts you at the top of the page instead of where you were before. Very annoying when surfing a forum or a news website...

Hmm, sometimes the mouse pointer is above the actual mouse pointer in Safari. For instance, I just clicked this thread but got a thread a few threads down. It has happened a few times, and always after swiping back a page.

That's not a feature, that's a bug!! (meant to be a bad joke)

It's been doing that to me, but it seems rather random when it will occur. You can tell usually where it thinks the curser is by which link highlights or what the curser itself looks like.

I think I've found a common denominator though... Swiping back a page takes you to where you were when you clicked the link, then it loads and takes you to the top of the page. If you, during this time, click on a link to get to a new page and then swipe back, sometimes the cursor is higher up than where the "actual" cursor is.

I agree, to a point. Personally, I would love native finder split screens, like ubuntu has. Drag two finder windows together and they would snap together. Very apple-like.

And yet, we still don't have it.

I can see this replacing the copy progress dialog under certain conditions. Could you try copying a file to a folder on a pen drive, and then closing that window to see if the progress bar is also on the pen drive icon? (assuming you keep drives listed on the desktop)

It didn't for me when I just did it, but I also just moved a tiny file. If I remember right, it did when I moved something larger.

I'm not sure if this is what you mean, but if you're in safari (and a few other apps like AlienBlue) you can tap the time, carrier black bar at the top of your iphone/ipad and it will scroll to the top of the page for you.

Totalfinder brings tab support to Finder (though I don't know if it works yet with Mountain Lion).

Yeah I was aware of that, something similar to get to the bottom would be great. For example, in browsing this thread on my iPhone, to see just the latest posts I have to swop a number of times to get to the bottom of the page. To be able to instantly navigate to the bottom like I can to the top would be a really nice feature.

These alone make it a worthwhile upgrade for me. Then again, I'll be upgrading anyway. No reason not to (for me), especially at that price.

Looking at how Apple priced the latest OS X updates and their general approach to pricing, I would say it's highly unlikely that the price will be anything but USD 29, and if it's not, it will more likely be lower than higher. Do you have another opinion, please do share.

Apple is fairly spontaneous. I wouldn't want to get my hopes up for anything. With Apple, nothing is definite, until they get onstage. I do think we'll know sometime during WWDC though.
