I would to say it is how much "snappier" Safari feels, lol.
I love how much snappier the entire OS feels. I was hoping to use airplay mirroring for casual gaming but it seems it has a very slight lag to it. This normally isnt a problem but it would bother me for gaming.
But my fav new feature would have to be the integration of reminders app. makes typing shopping lists much easier!
Was just grooving on how quick Safari is and just generally smoother.
My first thought thus far reflects the OP. Although, I'm digging the Safari feel.
This time, I really have to agree. Love the snappiness!
Safari is NOT a ML feature...it's also available for Lion.
It feels extra snappy now because of the way the load bar finishes and flies across the screen, it's really cool.
My favorite feature is how whiney BRLawyer gets when anyone says anything positive about Mountain Lion.
I stopped using safari and went to chrome cause it was so slow. Maybe I can go back now when I get ML then.
Mountain Lion is awesome so far. It's hard for me to pick a favourite new feature, but Safari is definitely awesome (better than the previews on Lion). I LOVE the new Dock, new apps... everything. I'm chuffed.
Does the new Safari for Lion also use Core Animation for scrolling, like the Mountain Lion version? I didn't think that it did.
True. Can't argue against that, but Safari 6 is definitely still snappier than 5.
Favorite feature: Notification Center. I never used a third party notification app, and it's great to see my e-mails previewed as they arrive.
Biggest surprise: Dictation. I gave it a few paragraphs to handle in OpenOffice - it was fast, and much more accurate than I expected (significantly better than Siri).
Honorable mention: (not technically an ML feature) - Safari 6. Faster, cleaner-looking with the unibar, pinch to swipe between tabs is handy.
Did I say anything wrong? I am running Safari 6 on Lion right now. Whining is when someone cries for nothing. I didn't.
My favourite features are:
Dictation, Notification Center, and a fixed Lanchpad.
Now that you look at it.. what big features did Mountain Lion even have?
I hope Google Chrome adds a Share button to their next release!
The whole OS, including Safari seem faster to me than Lion. On the iMac as well. Logic sure bounced projects down much more quickly than under Lion. I'm lovin' ML at this point & have had zero breakage of my music software.
I just not finished installing Mountain Lion, I am excited to try it out!
I agree. Safari seems wicked fast.
I want to switch to Safari as my primary browser so bad, but the lack of flash support (without having to actually install flash) is a dealbreaker. Also, I really wish it had the ability to pin tabs like Chrome.
Other than that, excellent release really so far!
First is dictation, with Safari a close second. But I also like notification centre.
(Typed with dictation.)
You realize that the difference between Flash in Chrome and Flash in Safari is that the Chrome version just looks for the plugin internally, whereas Safari looks in the system-standard plugins folder? Installing Flash on your computer is basically copying a plugin to a folder and (recently) adding a prefpane in System Prefs to control the settings for aforementioned plugin. Theres zero reason for you to be so stubborn about simply installing it. I hate flash as much as the next person, but to somehow insinuate that the simple act of installing it harms the system or otherwise is an issue is absurd. It sits there doing nothing until actually called up by the browser, the exact same way Chrome's copy does.
I actually did not know that. Thanks for the clarification. Maybe I'll switch after all.
No problem. I actually prefer this modular way or doing things, the thought that Chrome keeps it own copy of Flash that I can't update or roll back is unsettling personally.
Lol, what exactly does snappier mean?
Seems to start apps faster. Doesn't lag when opening any of them. When you click something, it responds faster.
