Anyone have it installed?

I'm presently downloading but it's going slow.

No, but I have used almost all it's open source components. Highlights are:

Apache now handles multiple connections as well as nginx (but still uses more RAM)
Bind, bash and Heimdal have numerous security fixes, one of them critical (but also rare and obscure).
Weird SNI issues in curl are fixed.
Dovecot is exactly the same as it always was as far as anyone can tell, but the config files changed
File has fixed the bug where it detects win32 icons as images (rather than extracting the icon), and burns all your RAM, until even your swap gives up. Also detects more of the obscure filetypes. Also plays better with the semantic desktop (if you have one in iOS, I don't know either way).
Nano updated for no particular reason, and replaced your tabs with spaces until you re-add your own config file.
openssh now uses bigger keys. This is a security fix for what won't be a security flaw for another couple of years.
A whole bunch of bugfixes in X11, though it breaks a few legacy graphics cards. The biggest impact is composting is less expensive, and your graphics card will run a tad cooler (and use slightly less electricity).

In short, assuming the bits we can't see are in a similar vain to the bits we can see, it's just a security and bugfix release.

I don't really notice much difference in it. Then again, I haven't looked. :lol:

One thing I have noticed that is nice, links now show at the bottom left of the page.

One thing that is weird however, is at this forum, links will display but when clicking
on reply to a topic the link changes to 'run script'.

I did a clean install so it took me a while to download and install all my essential applications. I prefer a clean install as it gets rid of all the junk that has accumulated over a year. System seems to be running more slick now.

El Capitan is pretty much like Yosemite with a handful of new features. Split view is something useful. Other features are just more like bringing iOS and OSX together.

I am using Chrome and I am having no issue with any script when clicking the reply button.

No problems or issues but seems funny when I hit the reply button to post....it's in the lower left of
the page and displays like this: run script ";"

I still use Safari only on MAC

Do you see something that looks like a microphone or a stick pin, in your
password log ins on pages? I haven't clicked it yet but I think it's a pin.

You mean like these?

That "key" icon is only on Safari, not on Chrome or Firefox. I believe it's the KeyChain Access which stores your passwords in iCloud across iOS devices and also suggests strong passwords for sites.

Yes you are correct.

I clicked on it today and it gives an option to enter your password automatically OR
to create a new password.
