OmniWeb 5.5 release candidate 1 now available. Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Hi Everyone,

OmniWeb 5.5 release candidate 1 is now available. There were only a few changes in this release but one is somewhat substantial.
  • CSS will once again be loaded from FILE URLs
  • Search FIeld now scrolls like it should when you reach the right edge of the Field.
  • OmniWeb once again blocks all resources matching expressions in the blocked URLs List.
    • This is controlled by a hidden default URLFilteringEnabled which defaults to on. Turning this preference off will return OmniWeb to the behavior found in beta 4 (only blocks images and plug-in content).
  • Updated French Localization.
  • The search field should now display properly under all localizations.

Downloads available in the usual spot:

Very nice indeed. Seems even speedier, and nice to have the CSS and text-ad-blocking back.
 
Searching page content in history still not working.

We're making this a priority for 5.5.1. Sorry for the inconvenience here.
 
This will probably sound like a stupid question, but I'm still getting java script and css ads that are in my blocklist. I know hidden defaults like that are changed through the terminal but what exactly do I type to turn it on/off?

Well changing the default i mentioned in the release notes above will only let more javascript through. Can you give us an example of a black list expression and a page that it's failing on?
 
By the way, if you did want to change the default above the terminal command to do it would be:

defaults write com.omnigroup.OmniWeb5 URLFilteringEnabled -bool FALSE
 
I have "atdmt.com" in my blocklist but ads still get through. The most prominent site where I have seen these ads is on myspace. I think they are javascript based.

It is really no problem, I can block them with the userContent.css file found at floppymoose.com, but I figured omni might want to check this out before releasing 5.5.

You do mean "atdmt\.com", right? You need to escape the period.
 
Will the issue with opening pop-up windows from bookmarklets get fixed for OW 5.5.1? Please? It's driving me kind of batty with the inconsistent behaviour -

1. click on bookmarklet in bookmark bar that spawns new window: it's blocked by the pop-up blocker.
2. Press command+# to trigger bookmarklet - bookmarklet opens in new tab.

Could there be some way to permanently whitelist any new windows from bookmarks?
