    My favorite features:
    • New Exposé
    • New system font
    • Less lag
    Yeah, looks just like the one in Chrome/Firefox.

    There's a setting to auto-hide it in the same way you can auto-hide the Dock.

    My favorite feature:
    System file permissions are automatically protected, and updated during Software Updates. The Repair Permissions function is no longer necessary.

    As I've finally watched the WWDC thingy today, my favorite feature has to be the Expose/Spaces thing as it relates to being able to have the split screen. That would seriously speed up certain kinds of work that I do (for example, weirdly, I've wanted something like this badly for a long time when comparing student papers so I can see if they're cheating together for take home tests). That's the thing I'm most excited about.

    Also, the "Metal" thing sounds cool. I game a bit, so that'd be nice to have.

    I've been using Cinch app for split-screen multitasking for years now. I even find it easier to use than El Capitan's own feature.

    Going from the keynote: Split View and Notes. I really liked the look of Notes but they desperately need tagging or the ability to file off different notes (did they have this? I didn't see it). Either way, the updates to Notes were really good. I use Evernote a lot but the slow creep of features I hate (Work Chat? No thanks) are making the UI annoying for me. I would much rather use a rich Notes editor, which is exactly what this update provides. It just needs some better organisation but the search updates look pretty damn good, too. Swings and roundabouts.

    The tweaks to the UI and the performance improvements. Not features per se, but my favourite parts.

    Likewise. Looks like their app just got killed.

    Didn't even know that existed. And now that I know...I guess it won't matter, with the stuff Apple's putting out soon! I really am excited about it.

    P.S. - I forgot about the Notes thing. That looks good too. I use notes extensively, so it'd be nice to do the features they talked about, and have it easily sync between all my devices once again.

    Do you have the Developer's Beta? If you watch the video here: http://www.apple.com/live/2015-june-event/, someone explains how. Somewhere around minute 10 I think? Don't remember exactly myself.

    You click and hold the GREEN traffic light button on the top left of a window, then select a side, then select the window you want on the other side.
    It brings the split view into a different "fullscreen" desktop.

    Sounds unintuitive. Is there actually any other kind of behaviour that is activated by a long button press? I can't think of one off the top of my head. Why not do it like all these third-party apps, Windows and some Linux desktop environments do by dragging the window into a corner or to the side? That's how lots of similar functions work in Finder.

    Is there a way to disable this? That bar is one of the things I hate about chrome so much.

    View - Hide Statusbar does the trick for me.
