Part: II Inside Mac OS X > Internet Communications

Chapter 7. Internet Communications

In This Chapter

The Mac OS has long been the leader in network connectivity among desktop operating systems. The Macintosh was using MacTCP and Open Transport while Windows 3.1 struggled to get online using third-party TCP stacks and DOS-based network card drivers. Although the playing field has mostly leveled, it's little surprise that Mac OS X includes a wide variety of Internet-related tools. Users who are interested in getting online, finding old friends, listening to Internet radio, viewing streaming video, sending e-mail, and surfing the Internet will be happy to find a large number of applications to get them online in a matter of minutes.
