Apple brags that OS X Mountain Lion boasts more than 200 new features. Even though that number involves some creative counting, there are a lot of impressive additions. Here are 14 of the most important.
Amping up security in Safari
Safari gets some security tweaks, including improved support for the Do Not Track security protocol. In theory, if you switch that option on (in the Privacy pane of Safari's preferences), websites participating in the DNT program will refrain from putting any monitoring cookies or other tracking devices on your system. There are a couple of big "ifs" in that scenario, but it's nice that Apple continues to support the inititative. It supported DNT in previous versions of Safari, but you had to delve into the Develop menu to turn it on. Now it's much easier to find and implement.
