I’ve been using the Apple OSX suite of productivity tools (Safari, iCal, Mail) for as long as I’ve been using Macs (PowerBook G4 in ‘03). I’ve dabbled with other applications like Thunderbird, Firefox, and Chrome, but I’ve stayed true to the Apple products because they worked. Up until recently, the ‘app’ experience in browsers were clunky and couldn’t match the speed and ability to customize. The tide has shifted with what can be done in the browser. Web application developers and browsers are pushing the limits of the user experience.
