New features[edit | edit source]

  • This build includes major changes to the Finder interface, using a metal-like theme. The Finder icon also gained an update.
  • The Aqua interface has been updated, removing some of the pinstripe areas that was seen in previous versions. However, the old shadow effect on text was still in use.
  • Safari is included, which was intended to replace the Internet Explorer that was used on previous versions. This inclusion was due to the five-year agreement contract between Apple and Microsoft from 1997 being close to ending.
  • iChat is also included by default, as a messenger application.
