Seven Lion Features You Might Have Missed | ArsTechnica

When Apple announced that Lion would ship this month, the company went into detail about 10 features that it considered major reasons to upgrade. Apps that automatically save state on quit and files that save themselves are reasons enough alone to consider the $29.99 update, but some readers wondered whether they were better off sticking with Snow Leopard.

  • WebKit2
  • Improved security
  • Merging folders
  • Full disk encryption
  • Unified iChat buddy list
  • Mac OS X virtualization
