    As this is only my second ever version of OS X I've owned here's come thoughts on what I've made of the beta so far.

    First off I think it looks great, Windows and Mavericks just look antiquated.
    Absolutely LOVE Safari, looks great, runs great and watching Netflix without Silverlight is incredible, so smooth, so fast and my fans don't even turn on - with Silverlight it would be as hot and noisy as when I play BF4 on it!

    System seems pretty stable and I'm looking forward to testing out the Continuity features, just a shame there's no public iOS 8 testing to go along with this. :D

    Is there anyway to adjust the translucency?

    Could someone explain iCloud Storage to me a bit more as I would like to enable it so I can stop using Dropbox but I don't want to mess up my iPhone as I rely on iCloud to back it up?

    I really don't like the strong black line between the top of Safari and the System bar. I also think it would be nice for the background image blur from Safari to continue through the System bar.

    If your iPhone doesn't have iOS 8 installed, I'd suggest you don't enable iCloud Drive until it's updated. You won't be able to access anything that you upload to iCloud Drive until it has iOS 8.

    I don't have the public beta installed but I would guess there's a way to send all this feedback to Apple, and I would suggest you do as you have good insights into the UI.

    FYI, just so it wouldn't confuse Apple (although I doubt it would), the bar at the top of the display on the Mac is referred to as the menu bar.

    Thanks and already sent feedback. I would settle for them just getting rid of the black line, just doesn't look right.

    I really really hope Youtube ups its game and starts really focusing on HTML5 as their current player isn't great. The sooner I no longer ever have to use Flash the better and getting rid of the need for Silverlight was a big step forward.

    All in all a great beta so far!
