Popover

I could be wrong, but in the Accounts Pref-Pane when you go to change your picture, it has one of the new white "pop" pop-overs that offers 4 options: Defaults, Recents, Faces and Camera. Nice to see some more UI unification following their own new introductions in Lion, seems neater somehow. Also nice to see faces integration too.

Gmail webmail detects the notification centre and offers options for desktop notifications. They don't appear to work yet though (this is really a Chrome feature so may not mean much).

AppStore

Small one:
App Store finally has fullscreen mode. Was surprised that that wasn't incorporated into the release of Lion, to be perfectly honest. Would be nice to see it in a few others for consistency's sake- for example, in System Preferences.

It's there since PPC Tiger, appears if you have a tablet device connected (or the virtual machine makes the guest OS think it is connected) - and it seems to me by the screenshots, it hasn't changed a bit from the Tiger and the versions following.

Really Love the 2 finger slide for the notification centre. Although I am not sure how useful notification centre will actually be on a Laptop

Some texts (in various apps) appear "faint". Like they changed the aliasing method?

I actually prefer the bolder form factor. It's one of the first things I noticed upon switching from PC to MAC. The bold look is nice, makes things a bit easier to read and seems to smooth out the edges for a nice look.

I suppose this could bother people who are trying to design a uniform website, but just speaking personally I prefer it.

Again, it only opens if you swipe from the right edge. Scrolling and swiping forward will still work.

Wait, you can send files to iOS? How will they be stored, and can you later send them from there to another Mac?

iCal

My favourite new feature that will let me drop a $20p/a subscription to spanning sync is that iCal now lets you properly 2 way sync all your google calendars natively in the app, prefs, accounts, delegation. Previously it would only show your main account, or use CalDav which didn't work properly.

Chess!

Chess actually supports full-screen now, as advertised an operating system ago, as well as Game Center. Oh, and it's got the worlds laziest backdrop behind the board.

Also, the back and foward buttons are under the window control buttons.

Another one: the font "Mac OS X / OS X" in "About this Mac" has changed; in Lion and previous versions it was Lucida Grande, in Mountain Lion it is Myriad Pro.

I've been quite impressed with the performance and additional features so far with Mountain Lion. Though I was happy enough with Lion this does feel like what Lion was truly meant to be.

My single largest gripe is that they haven't fixed how dual monitor setups are handled with fullscreen apps. It's totally ridiculous that a full screen app on one monitor disables the second monitor from use. I can't fathom how they ended up with that being "working as designed". Giving us the ability to swipe between fullscreen apps on multiple displays independently, have one full screen (and swipeable) app on one and your desktop on the other, or just allow two unique desktops a la Spaces would all be amazing additions. That would really take this release to the next level IMO and add a lot of lost functionality from Lion and Mission Control back into Mountain Lion while enhancing it even further.

That's actually been there since 2002 in Jaguar.

So if there's a window on your secondary monitor, and you make it fullscreen, does it still get moved to the main monitor in the dev preview? :/
