Workbench 3.0 was a substantial upgrade over Workbench 2.0, and brought many new features to the Amiga Workbench environment, although most of them were not visible to the user and were reliant on the new Kickstart 3.0.
Some of the notable new features were:
- Support for ‘datatypes’, a flexible system for working with files.
- Support for using pictures as the background on the Workbench and in windows.
- The new ‘Multiview’ software tool, that used datatypes to enable opening and display/playback of any file type for which there was an installed datatype.
For comparison purposes, here are several of the competing Graphical User Interfaces of the time:
