OS X 10.10 Yosemite

OS X 10.10 will be known as Yosemite. The latest version of the Mac operating system offers a slew of new features and improvements aimed at bridging the gap between the desktop and mobile.

Apple's Safari browser now offers a detailed tab view, so you can get a quick glance at all of the sites you're browsing.

Sites you're checking out on your desktop will be available too.
