TidBITS#986/13-Jul-09

As summer starts to set in here, things are slowing down a bit, so we have a few longer articles you can sit back and read at your leisure. Adam and Glenn team up for a look at what Google’s forthcoming Chrome OS could mean for Apple, Matt Neuburg contributes a detailed look at Cocoatech’s Path Finder 5, and Jeff Carlson finds himself sucked into etymological enjoyment at Wordnik. Be sure to check out our ExtraBITS links this week, along with our coverage of the releases of Safari 4.0.2, Default Folder X 4.2.1, VLC 1.0, and Electric Sheep 2.7.
