It’s the Little Things

I installed the latest iTunes update the other day. Later on, I watched a movie in fullscreen. I hit the ‘esc’ key, and, instead of closing the video, as the app had been doing, it windowed the video. Oh, happy days.
All over the internet, and in VLC or Quick Time player, when a video is in fullscreen and a user hits ‘esc’, the vid backs out of fullscreen. But not in iTunes. It used to, but since at least Lion was released, hitting ‘esc’ closes a video. Man, I hated that.
But, in their infinite wisdom, Apple has decided, with this latest release, to restore what has become an expected function to a common action. Well done, sirs.
It’s too bad the Safari update is so buggy, though.
