It’s that time again, kiddies -- Apple has fired up the Software Update factory once again and the assembly line is busy pushing OS X Lion 10.7.4 onto Macs everywhere, with a little Safari 5.1.7 thrown in for good measure.
The new iPad preorders are shipping, while procrastinators are starting the week plotting how they can best get their hands on one come this Friday, March 16 now that Apple’s online store sold through their supply in record time. By all accounts it should be an interesting week, which is already kicking off with a minor Safari update, a Jony Ive interview and Siri facing her first lawsuit. Check out the rest of the day’s news for this manic Monday, March 12, 2012.
Everyone survive Cyber Monday? It looks like retailers sure have a lot to be happy about, and hopefully you’ll be able to do the same as those boxes of goodies start arriving later in the week. Now that you’ve blown your holiday budget and have no more money to spend, why not catch up on what’s going on around the rest of the internet? You know, the free stuff you might have overlooked? Here’s the latest for Tuesday, November 29, 2011.
Safari 5 has given us plenty of reasons to steer clear of Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome and with the addition of extensions late last year, it's become a mecca for third-party developers looking to get their app to other browsers. However, no matter how much we love the browser for its intrinsic simplicity, we can't help but notice that sometimes it needs a little booster to do things the way we like them done. Here are six Safari extensions that are worth the download to make your internet browsing experience a little simpler.
Wow, it’s hard to believe that another Friday is here and with Halloween behind us, everyone is looking ahead to the holiday season already. Apple is likely done with the exciting releases for the year (aside from iTunes Match and a few software updates), but that hardly means the internet is quiet -- just the opposite, there’s plenty to chatter about for this Friday, November 4, 2011.
With more than 250 new features coming to Mac OS X Lion in July, it was impossible for Apple to demonstrate them all, especially during a two-hour keynote shared by iOS 5 and the introduction of iCloud. So what are some of the features that didn’t make the cut? Why, we’re glad you asked.
Lost amidst the Mac OS X Lion, iOS 5 and iCloud melee on Monday was another developer-only release for Safari 5.1. The next version of Apple’s web browser will ship with Lion in July, but here’s what you’ll have to look forward to.
Most of us take for granted the machinations going on behind the scenes of our favorite technology, and nowhere is that more true than in the seemingly mundane task of surfing web pages with a browser. Sure, you might know that certain browsers are more forward thinking than others when it comes to new standards such as HTML5, but what does it all mean for you?
While Apple hasn’t blessed its own Mac OS X web browser with as many hidden talents as competitors such as Firefox, there is still plenty of functionality in Safari 5 that’s not quite obvious to the casual user. Find out for yourself by journeying within!
Mozilla is officially releasing Firefox 4 on Tuesday, but we managed to get our mitts on a copy a day early and poked around to see what you can expect from the latest and greatest version. Will version 4 manage to top the eight million downloads in only 24 hours from the last major release?
