“I began using OS X El Capitan shortly after last week’s WWDC keynote when I met with Apple to talk about the latest release of the operating system,” Jim Dalrymple writes for The Loop. “A lot of people have asked me what my favorite announcement during the keynote was, and my answer was always the same—the focus on performance and stability for OS X. Yosemite brought many improvements and tighter integration with iOS, but it was time to go back stabilize everything.”
“I know from my limited use, Split View is going to be one of my most used features in OS X,” Dalrymple writes. “Split View is very easy to initiate too. Just hold down the green window button and your desktop will split into two sections—drop the current window into one of the sections and the remaining open applications will be available on the other side—chose the one you want there and that’s it, you’re now in Split View. Exiting Split View is equally as easy—hit the escape key on your keyboard and you’re back to your desktop… Split View is also window-based, not app-based, which means you can have two windows from one application in Split View. For example, if I want two Safari windows open in Split View, I can do that.”
“Apple is focusing on the right things with OS X El Capitan—performance, efficiency and a few features that will make the operating system better for us to use,” Dalrymple writes. “My use of the new features gives me a good sense of what to expect in the new OS when it’s released and I can’t wait.”
