leopard review part four

Dashboard has not seen many changes in and of itself in Leopard, with only three listed on Apple's New Features page. However, what changes exist may be very significant to some users: Web Clip in particular may redefine the very concept of the Dashboard even for novice users, while their more experienced and even professional counterparts can turn to Dashcode. Merge this with an improved Front Row interface for media playback, and Apple's extra-layer services -- that is, those which exit the familiar desktop -- are a large step forward for Mac OS X. Click ahead for the fourth portion of our Leopard review.

    better front row chapters

    One other thing I like about the new version of Front Row is that it supports chapter markers in MP4 files when played through the normal movie menu. The old version only supported the markers if the movie was selected from its folder on the hard drive rather than from the Movies menu, which required quite a few more clicks.
