“With the release of iOS 5 and Mac OS 10.7.2, Apple has added iCloud features to both operating systems. One of the applications that has benefited is Safari, Apple’s default web browser,” Karl Johnson writes for T-GAAP.
“The big new feature for Safari is bookmarks and reading list syncing. With these features, users can sync bookmarks and reading lists with other Macs and iOS devices,” Johnson writes. “Now that iCloud is here, Safari can now sync bookmarks with any Mac or iOS device. While one can’t sync with Chrome or Firefox yet, it is fast, and happens completely in the background without any user intervention. It only takes a couple of seconds for the new bookmarks to show up in other devices.”
Johnson writes, “With iCloud, Apple has tied the iOS and Mac versions of Safari closer together. Users now can freely move between computer or mobile device, while keeping all the bookmarks in sync with each other seamlessly in the background. Apple has made an already great browser even better. Once users become familiar with the new features, they’ll find it hard to use another browser.”
