We have made a list of the top 5 features (or at least, what we think are the top 5) of the new OS X Mavericks
- Shared browser links – The new Safari browser's Sidebar has got the Shared Links option enabled. It automatically lists all the URLs shared to the user via his social networks. But the user must at first connect his OS X to these social networks via an Internet Accounts system preference. These shared links provide a handy list of all of the web pages that the user’s friends and the colleagues have been discussing or been recommending.
- Tabbed Finder windows – Apple’s new OS X Mavericks now lets users add tabs to the Finder windows; whereas users can also create new windows by pressing the keys, “Cmd-T”.
- iCloud Keychain – The new iCloud Keychain added in the OS X Mavericks does two things users will appreciate. It can now automatically save user’s credit card information entered on websites, so that the user doesn’t have to keep re-entering that particular data. But users still need to enter the CVV code because iCloud Keychain intentionally does not ever retain that verification code.
- Map integration in Calendar – The new OS X Mavericks can integrate Maps with the Calendar. If a particular appointment has a recognized street address, the Calendar app shows a preview map of that location also. Users need to double-click that to open the location in the Map application. The calendar app also calculates the approximate drive time to such destinations based on user’s current location and a historic traffic pattern for that time of the day and adds that drive time to the calendar as well.
- Automatic app updates – Usually, people don't like being asked to install app updates again and again. Apple’s new OS X Mavericks updates apps regularly. The security updates are also auto-installed by default, a feature that was previously introduced in OS X Mountain Lion.
