Who knew?

I didn’t realize until minutes ago that cmd+r refreshed the frontmost widget in the OS X (SL) dashboard and, what is more, that the refresh is shown by the image for the widget distorting into a twisted, ragged mass and then untwisting into its refreshed state.

Sheesh. I’ve been using Macs since the mid-80s and SL since it was released and I’d missed this. Did this animation exist in earlier releases, too?

  1. Man, I didn’t realize that CTRL-R trick either. But then I don’t use the dashboard that much… Still, pretty cool!
