Rumor has it that Apple might debut a new version of OS X, OS X 10.9, at this year’s WWDC.
Code named, Cabernet, OS X 10.9 would draw inspiration from iOS, and also address the operating system’s somewhat outdated Finder with tabbed browsing, and the addition of tags. Tabbed Browsing in the Finder would negate the need for multiple windows, though it’s not clear how tags would be implemented, if at all.
If Apple were to add iOS features, it’s said to be more akin to that of fast app switching, which also lends an assist in the battery department, as background apps wouldn’t run at full power. Apple might also be working on a faster, more efficient Safari, improving page loading times, though that is an ongoing battle and hardly a rumor.
A final feature, which is by most accounts is not that important to most users, but something power users have long looked for, is the ability to keep a different “Space” or full-screen apps open on a different monitor.
Remember, these are just rumors. However, with WWDC selling at a record-breaking speed, it’s likely that Apple will do something big at this year’s event to meet expectations.
