“Once again, after seeing the kids off to school and wife to work with a peck and smile, I found myself greeting a visitor, Scruffy, the American Kennel Club certified feature retriever,” The Fairer Platform reports. “He appeared at my door bearing screen caps and text descriptions of new features in Apple’s upcoming Mac operating system rewrite.”
“The biggest change in Mail 5, according to Scruffy (tail wagging enthusiastically) is the new user interface, featuring an iPad-like fullscreen mode. Yes, fullscreen apps are an over arching theme in Lion and this core application is among the first to get the treatment,” The Fairer Platform reports. “Mail 5′s toolbar has gotten a makeover… The most notable change being you can drag mailboxes, etc. to the toolbar and then drag to re-order those — this order is tied to Command + 1, 2, 3, 4… a fast and convenient way to move between mailboxes.”
