Easier media upload
WordPress 3.3 now makes it simpler to upload files with only only 1 upload button and auto detects the file type of your uploaded file(s). You simply drag-and-drop files into the upload area to upload your files. The uploader also added support for .RAR and .7z compressed file formats.
Cleaner Dashboard design

The WordPress Admin bar and the Dashboard header has been combined into single toolbar with submenus (if available). iPad or tablets users will found certain WordPress dashboard screens are looking better on their tablets.
Other improved features are better co-editing that you’ll only get co-editing warning if another person is still on the editing screen; Now you can import your Tumblr to WordPress using the Tumblr Importer. Imported Tumblr posts will be matching to WordPress post formats.
