Attention to detail

January 23, 2006

safari download progress icon I noticed something new today on my Mac. When you download a file with Safari, the icon for the new file has a progress bar that updates as it downloads.

After seeing this feature that many people like myself have probably never even noticed before, I thought wow, Apple really does pay close attention to detail. This is perhaps one of the reasons for their success.

In Linux, I have also noticed lots of similar effects and felt the same feelings :)
MK, > so to have an animation of something I'll never look at is a waste of my processor. You must be referring to Window's animated 'copying' dialog box! ;-) Pete, I've noticed a similar display in the dock with application icons showing the progress too. Nice.
If my memory serves Microsoft IE for Mac version 3 or 4 first introduced the idea of updating the icon to show down.load progress.
I want this machine, I hope this year get Apple Mac Pro Intel based notebook ;)
