AOL Desktop for Mac
AOL on Tuesday unveiled AOL Desktop for Mac, a brand new portal software for the company's internet services, representing the first such major release in five years. The client offers email, messaging, and web browsing services, as well as access to the company's various content channels. AOL includes easy transition tools, which allow users to quickly import AOL favourites and mail from the former Mac OS X client. AOL Desktop for Mac is available from the company's website.
The new application brings with it a new web browser, based off the same open source project as Safari, which shares its web components with the Mac OS X.
AOL Desktop for Mac also includes an exclusive new version of AOL Instant Messenger that integrates closely with the new applications suite, offering access to Buddy Info, AIM Expressions, and Buddy Fly Out.
Both the web browser and AIM client also support tabs, allowing users to easily organize their conversations and web pages without cluttering the interface.
