Comment on "The Year in Mac Development"
by Chris Ryland — Jan 01
@Scott: I think Apple has correctly (perhaps unwittingly) observed that the Web has changed UI design forever, and people just don't care that much about app-to-app perfectly low-level consistencies in UI elements.

It does make more work for developers, but in some sense it's put a lot of power back into UI design, instead of having everything look the same. And I think people even appreciate the added "color" (in terms of the overall texture and colors) of the resulting desktop.

@Nick: drawers seem almost officially dead as UI elements.
