Mountain Lion grade
Authored by: Robert McMahan on Aug 02, '12 10:24:51AM

"I'm on an early 2009 Core2Duo iMac. Mountain Lion is much faster than Lion was."

I'm happy for you. I wish mine was.

"Regarding RSS, I was initially very disappointed with that being removed. But that lead me to search for a new RSS reader. Now I'm using Vienna. And you know what? It's way better than doing it in Safari. It's not slower and doesn't take more steps. It actually takes less steps. "

Everybody's work flow is different. In Safari, I would go through all my RSS feeds and just command-click on a link to save the article to a new tab behind the current tab. Then I come back and read it later. In RSS reader, when I create a new tab for an article, it takes me to that tab and then I have top click back to the feed list--extra click. Plus, my RSS reader is much slower opening a page than Safari is.

Then, if I want to save to Evernote for future reference, I then have to open the article back in Safari to do that--extra click. Then, If I want to click a link to iTunes App Store or Mac App Store, again, it takes me to Safari and then to the appropriate app store--switch app, switch app again. Really not efficient for my preferred work flow. I'm glad it works for you, but just because it works for you doesn't mean it works for everyone.

The question asked was to give reasons for the grade I gave. These grades and reasons for them are completely subjective and different for each person.
