Phishing filter Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
It would be most appropriate for OW STAFF to reply to our discussion on phishing filters. If indeed OW chooses to ignore the ramifications of this development, then they are dismissing a major turning point in browser development.

Come on Omniweb, join in... we want to know what you are thinking, and how you plan to react to PayPal's threat.

P.K.
 
I'm not on the OmniWeb team, but it's worth pointing out that Paypal has disavowed plans to block any browsers.
 
This is mainly a members-helping-members type forum. The OG guys do drop in from time to time, but if you have a pressing issue the best way to get a response is to use the Send Feedback... option under "Help" in the browser.

PS. If you're looking for help, it's not the best idea to ignore what others post. I already pointed out PP is not blocking Safari in a previous post, yet you continue to state that PP has issued a "threat."
 
1Password recently added support to every browser they are compatible with using Phishtank.com community supported data.

Of course it is a shareware application and if Omniweb had phishtank.com support, it wouldn't rely on a Input Manager (which is not essentially bad).

I just tell for the 1password users and people planning to get a password manager or feeling insecure.
 
I just received my Consumer Reports and it stated to stay clear of Safari because of Phishing. It said to use either Opera or Firefox. Does Omniweb now offer a Phishing Filter?

No.

I agree with Forrest. These filters only protect you from known phishing sites. A little common sense goes a long way. Omniweb is not really a browser for web neophytes. Just don't click on links in your emails, or blind links on web sites, and never enter your pwersonal information unless you're on a known secure web site. Duh.

I'd hate to see development resources wasted on this feature and taken away from fixing the anoyances we've been complaining about for months.
 
If OmniWeb saves passwords in the Keychain and normally fills them in on a web form, does it not have to check that the domain is correct? Would not its failing to fill in a password in the normal way serve as an warning that something is awry?
 
And so what about this function in OW since it is now available in Safari and so a part of WebKit ?

That doesn't necessarily mean it's part of WebKit.
