I think this one might be #68… I like how you can choose within the Finder Preferences, the default search location when doing a search. Under 10.5 it was kinda annoying having to switch from 'This Mac' to the whatever your current folder was once and again…

^ Yes.

The only issue I have with this new "Search the Current Folder" option is that it's not the default, and that it thus took me a while to realize it was available. This option should always have been the default, since it's more logical for the search field in a Finder window to refer to the contents of that window rather than the entire OS - we've already got a global search menu in the upper right of the screen for that.

Ticking sound coming from a .pkg package? Don't let the .bom go off! Inspect it first with Pacifist. Macworld - five mice!

Go into Exposé and press Command+Tab.

Pretty cool if you like keyboard control.

Much better network throughput. I'm getting about 200-250 MB/s better throughput on a 5 1 gigabit link aggregate with SL Server.

This improvement (Spelling and Grammar correction automatic by language) is amazing. The previous Multilingual option did never work for me under 10.5

I'm kinda disappointed they Apple couldn't have added auto-capitalization into Snow Leopard. Thats the one feature I was really hoping for.
