Unsaved file marker System
When you're working in an OS X application such as SweetMail, HTMLEdit, or TextEdit (and others, I'd expect) there's a subtle but useful visual marker to denote unsaved changes.

When you've made changes that are not yet saved, the red document close button will have a small black dot in its center; when you save the document, the dot vanishes.

Quite handy as a quick visual method of checking whether you've saved your latest changes or not.

Cocoa Unsaved Dot - Feature
Authored by: Anonymous on Jan 02, '01 04:49:18PM

This is such a great feature. Its given to you for free when you program in cocoa (which grows on me more as I keep using it). Its just a pleasant little dot inside what is normally the close widget. Its the best visual clue I've seen to indicate that the work in progress has been changed and hast yet to be saved.
