While early looks at Leopard have provided focus on the major features announced by Apple, the following minor features may prove to be interesting to day-to-day Mac users. Reports of the Leopard Developer's preview is that it is remarkably solid, and the user interface is more responsive ("snappier") than Tiger (Mac OS X 10.4).
Reports indicate that the Finder and Front Row are exactly the same as the Tiger versions, suggesting that unannounced improvements could be in store for them by Leopard's final release.
The following screenshots highlight new and interesting features:
