Tiger bites

Category : mac and the internet

After a quick look at the new features, these are the features I looking forward to besides Spotlight; these notes are extracted from Apple page on Tiger's new features:

  • Burnable Folders - Burn a CD or data DVD directly from the Finder by quickly creating a "burn folder" where you can drag and drop the files you want to save.
  • Finder Slideshow - Quickly create full-screen slideshow of any selected images directly from the Finder.
  • PDF 1.5 Document Compatibility - Take advantage of many popular features of PDF 1.5 in Preview 3.
  • Font Export - Easily package up a set of fonts needed by colleagues or service bureaus with just a few clicks.
  • Dictionary Application - Look up troublesome words in a new dictionary and thesaurus system application based on The New Oxford American Dictionary.
  • Dictionary Service - Call up a dictionary definition for any word on-screen with just one click.
  • iChat AV, Multi-person Audio Conferencing - Conduct an audio conference with up to 10 people at a time from iChat AV.
  • Quick Time 7, H.264/AVC Video Codec - Enjoy higher quality video at lower data rates with this ultra-efficient, fully scalable compression technology for video creation and playback.
  • Safari, Archive a Web Page - Save the HTML and images for the current web page on your hard drive with just a few clicks.
  • Safari, Email Web Page or Link - Email the contents or URL of the current web page without the hassle of cutting and pasting into a message.
  • Safari, Inline PDF Viewing - View PDF documents directly in a Safari browser window no other application required.
  • Safari, RSS Auto Detection - Automatically detect the availability of RSS news feeds for a website so you can easily add them to your list.
  • Safari RSS View - View RSS news feeds for your favorite websites directly in Safari no external news reader required.
  • Spotlight in Open / Save Panels - Use the powerful new Spotlight to search for documents and folders directly from the open and save panels.
  • VPN Settings - Enjoy new VPN options: stay connected to a VPN server when switching user accounts or logging out, and direct all network traffic through the VPN connection.
  • VPN On Demand - Automatically establish a VPN connection when a firewall protected service is used for specific domains.
  • Automator - Easily automate complex and repetitive tasks without any programming just like having a personal robot inside your computer. See MacWorld article; this sounds like a potential hit.
  • Target Disk Mode - Make your Mac appear to be a hard drive on another system with just one click by using the Target Disk Mode option in the Startup Disk Preference panel.
  • Searchable System Preferences - Find any system setting simply by typing its name - or a synonym, or even a PC-only term - into the search field.
