Available to developers via a preview today, and to consumers in the Fall, OS X “El Capitan” is the next iteration of Apple’s desktop operating system and changes are coming. An overhaul to the Safari browser for one: you can pin tabs, set tabs to startup, and mute audio from specific tabs as well. Spotlight search has been improved to support natural language, so as asking it to find “documents I worked on in June” will net you the intended documents, including the weather, stocks, and games scores.
New Notes app as well as an improved Mission Control interface for better window management, including a Split View, which splits the screen into two halves: one for each app.
System-wide the font has been changed to Apple’s San Francisco, which will also be extended towards iOS 9 and unify the font used across Apple systems. A 40% increase in rendering is also being integrated into El Capitan, allowing for games (usually an afterthought on the OS) to run better than ever before.
