10.8 All the Little Things!
In honor of the "10.7 All the Little Things!" thread on the Lion forum, I'd like to start one for Mountain Lion!
So talk about small details, little things that don't really get mentioned anywhere. Even the slightest change from Lion deserves to be noticed!
I heard someone say that the Devices list in the Finder sidebar can now be moved back to the top, for example.

I heard in a video on youtube that it's going to be a software update, somebody know about that?

Some new "Slideshows" for Screen Savers. They are pretty neat.

I know I've said several times today about the ability to move devices (or shared) to the top of the finder sidebar (finally!)
Also searching within Launchpad, instant filtering.

In QuickLook, there's now a share button, includes Email, Message and one more thing I can't remember (not Twitter though).
Another thing I found is that using Messages, you can send files over, with no restrictions to certain types of files nor to size (for example, I was able to send the Messages beta dmg to myself over iMessage. It was pretty fast as well).

I've been wondering how the two finger left swipe will work for Notification Center while Safari is in the foreground. Right now the two finger swipe is to go forward a page.

-Option to save directly to iCloud from Save dialog in TextEdit (and presumably any app that supports iCloud document syncing)
-When a document that is using Versions is changed, the "Edited" in the titlebar of the document pulsates blue for a few seconds.
-"Duplicate" now has a keyboard shortcut: Cmd-Shift-S. When you select Duplicate, a copy of the current document pops out and the titlebar becomes an editable text field, allowing you to enter a new name, hit enter, and be done.
-Option to show the Displays menu item "Never," "Always," or "Automatically" (presumably only when you have a second display connected)
-New "Passwords" tab in Safari preferences
-"Tell websites not to track me" option
-Option to turn off Google/Bing/Yahoo search suggestions
-Websites can provide notifications in Notification Center
-"Display images when the page opens" option (default is obviously checked)
-Several sharing options when right-clicking on an image on a page: Email, Message, Twitter, AirDrop, and Flickr
-Ability to rename bookmarks directly in the Bookmarks Bar
-New "Share" submenu when right-clicking on a file: Email, Message, AirDrop
-The widgets bar along the bottom for adding new widgets has been replaced with a Launchpad-style picker - including the ability to search.
-Controls remain hidden when the movie is paused

The new tabs in Safari look like the tabs on the iPad's version of Mobile Safari.
You can launch Notification Center via a circle with a black dot inside of it, in the menu bar on the far right corner.
Launchpad icons are smaller
Location Services are disabled by default. You'll have to reenable them in order to turn on Find My Mac in the iCloud settings.
Failure is not an option, it comes bundled with Windows;

I hope people can be kind enough to post screen shots for us. Particularly that Safari iPad tab new look, it sounds very interesting. Changing over to the Chrome-styled URL address bar is exactly, in my opinion.
