Chapter 21. The Internet > The Macintosh Advantage (JO)

The Macintosh Advantage (JO)

Internet and messaging applications for the Macintosh are cool, but they're not the ones that really differentiate the Macintosh Internet experience. Not too long ago, Apple enhanced the integration of the Mac OS with the Internet on a couple of fronts. iTools, a suite of Internet-based utilities that can appear seamlessly blended with the Macintosh Desktop, and Sherlock, an extensible search tool that lets you comb the Internet without opening a browser, are two examples that showcase the Mac's superiority as an Internet station (Figure 21.48). (You need to be running Mac OS 9 or Mac OS X to use iTools and Sherlock.)


Figure 21.48. Apple has created a real affinity between the Mac OS and the Internet with iTools. Some of the nicest benefits to iTools are its free Web hosting and e-mail.
