- The new Mac OS X has long let users assign various color tags to files and also folders as a visual cue for the file content. But the new OS X Mavericks extends that to include a special user-defined tag that the user can add to files and folders in the Finder. Users can display these tags in the Finder's Sidebar or even via OS X's search facility to quickly display files tagged using whatever labels they want.
- In the previous version of OS X Mountain Lion, users could mirror their Desktop to the Apple TV. But the new OS X Mavericks takes that to the next step. Users can now treat the Apple TV as just another monitor.
- The smart notifications banners are a useful way to see when user has got a new message without stopping what he was doing. In the new Mac OS X Mavericks, users can now even respond to a notification within the banner. Just hover the pointer over the banner and then click the ‘Reply’ button to be able to respond immediately.
- Browsers like Safari and Google Chrome did not provide a sidebar for bookmarks till the new OS X came, so most of the users had to standardize on Firefox. But the new Safari 7, debuted in the OS X Mavericks, has got a proper sidebar for bookmarks.
- The new Mac OS X Mavericks adopts their iOS Maps app. It’s really cool to be able to get important driving directions and send those to an iPhone or any other iOS 7-based device. Those show up in the iOS Maps app, and also ready for the user to follow while driving or walking. These directions also remain in user’s bookmarked directions for access later if needed.
These features are newly introduced by the new OS X Mavericks. The users have already liked it and they’re the best brand new features that the new OS has got.
