Leopard: Four Web 2.0 features we love (video)

We've got Leopard and played with it. Here are some Web features you're going to dig.

Tomorrow may be the day OS X Leopard makes its way out to the unwashed masses, but we were lucky enough to get our hands on a (legal) copy of the operating system earlier this morning directly from the mother ship in Cupertino. Besides the snazzy new look and feel, the big things we wanted to get our hands on were all the Web features we've been drooling over. We picked four that we think people are actually going to use, including Web Clips, RSS feed reading in the new Mail app, Web search history in Spotlight, and Wikipedia as a part of the Dictionary application.

Just narrowly missing the cut was the GPS feature in preview, which we think is cool, but definitely not quite mainstream until more cameras get GPS integration. In perfect conditions, assuming your photo has GPS bearings in its metadata, you'll be able to see where it is on a Google Map, which we wrote about earlier this week.

Enjoy the video, and if you're picking up a copy of Leopard for yourself, be sure to check these new features out. For more Leopard News, visit CNET's Leopard page.
