I'd like to compile a list of things thats pissing me off, things "I feel" about Lion. As you see fit add to it. I've found some pretty glaringly stupid things in Lion which probably shouldn't have made it out in stable release. iPhoto sideways scrolling with two fingers is disabled or gone This is actually extremely useful and it's gone. This is when you use two fingers left or right to jump between photos in an event or album. And depending whether you're in fullscreen mode or not the thumbnail viewer down the bottom may or may scroll left or right. An actual bug, not a refinement. Did the Lion team not actually test iPhoto before release? Safari still doesn't have a simple, logical way to have multiple tabs or windows I'm typically a Chrome user but lets give Safari a go. You open Safari and load Gmail, your checking mails. You also want to open Calendar to check the date of something and maybe MacRumours to see whats happening in the world of Lion. You look for new tab button as you want both open together - there isn't any. You think "Is this IE6?". You look for "New Window", it's in File menu ("I have to go into a menu to do this?"). It's also Option + N. If you do these things the tab way you can't jump between tabs with a gesture, you can with multiple Safari windows open but you still have that horrible "New Window" situation. You think, this isn't a modern browser. You can't wait for Chrome Lion edition. Launchpad seems a little pointless with the applications folder in the dock And the dock itself always being there. It's gesture is also difficult and because you'll use it so rarely you wont practice or remember. Re-open all windows on start is horribly cluttering, not very useful This in future could become a fact of life that I'll get over when I consider the way I use my iPhone, iPad and so on. On a laptop, PC, Mac I always get a fresh system on startup unless I put it to sleep. When I do restarts or shutdowns I don't expect a cluttered desktop on startup. Back / Forward swipe in Safari is implemented wrong - page reloads are a pain You'll notice this on certain pages that require a refresh or reload on going "back" to them. Manually using the back button seems to suit this situation more. It's like swipe is too efficient a gesture for such an inefficient design. Dock appearance in app fullscreen mode is very sketchy Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Overall gives the feel of an incomplete system. Mission Control is more confusing than Expose The amount of elements has increased, my eyes are more confused, the lack of moving apps between different desktops, the inability to close apps from here, the pointlessness of MC on MBA's. Recovery partition requires download, what? I don't get this. You fire up recovery mode to reinstall Lion and it wants a net connection to re-download the entire 3.7GB package again. I have a 500GB drive and I don;t mind keeping a copy, even an early Lion. Something tells me a lot of things are here to stay, they'll be implemented better in time or other technologies will catch up to utilise them better but for a supposedly stable beginning I'm actually finding Lion pretty annoying and buggy even though Apple tend to release on their own schedule, i.e when actually ready. I can't imagine all the Apple techs and heads are happy with all these features either.
