Finder has changed a lot over the years and, while we’re big fans of the tabbed windows in OS X Mavericks and Yosemite, we were disappointed when old-style colored labels vanished, and also when the sidebar icons became depressingly monochrome. But where Apple no longer provides, enterprising third-party developers are often there to fill the void. One such example is XtraFinder, and here we'll show you how to use it.
As if Friday wasn’t busy enough for everyone trying to get their hands on a new iPad, developers had an extra treat waiting for them when they returned home: A second beta of the forthcoming OS X Mountain Lion, adding iCloud sync for Safari tabs and requesting permission before accessing contacts.
Safari is a great web browser that is fast, based on WebKit, and provides many great Apple-supplied features, such as Reader. However, there are a lot of hidden features and tricks that Safari has up it's sleeves. We'll expose these features in this article.

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?
Thanks to iOS, we all know how to use Mobile Safari to scroll a web page or zoom in and out using pinch gestures. But did you know that one of the third-party browsers for your iPad can do all of that and much more, complete with tabs and desktop browsing spoofing?
