The one defining feature for me is 64 Bit. No standard app needs this more than a browser IMHO. Web pages seem to need more and more memory these days, and each and every day, OmniWeb
crashes on me more than 10 times because it reaches the 4 GB memory limit during my work. (Go figure how much I love working with this browser that I cope with that
I've been told 64 Bit won't happen before OmniWeb 6
, so according to what you say, it won't happen in the foreseeable future. That's about the worst news I can imagine for OmniWeb
I gladly paid for OmniWeb
, and I would still gladly pay again, but this almost forces me away from this browser. Everything else is nice to have, but 64 Bit is a must, as basic as Apps must not crash!
For me, the OmniGroup
has always been the poster-child of Mac OS X development, and I said and wrote so on many occasions. But this is not good. Your users have not only invested money in your applications, but also lots of work which would be lost (not bookmarks, maybe, but certainly workspace configurations and other elaborate settings). It was your decision to make OmniWeb
available for free, and even then you told us not to be afraid that OmniWeb
would die. Don't abandon your users now, please!
