I Want OmniWeb 6 Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes

I have used OmniWeb off and on for a decade.
I use it now as my default browser over Safari, iCab and Firefox.
I mainly use OmniWeb Because of sight preferences and full page
zoom (enabled by the terminal). I love OmniWeb and want to see
OmniWeb 6 with the Safari 5 Webkit and a fresh UI. I use News Fire
for my default feed reader. I just want my favorite browser updated.
Love and Regards
Dan

Agreed, would be nice to get an initial sneaky pete release of OW 6 to play with.
 
would love to see OmniGroup really develop this browser. Is there actually any plan to release a major upgrade to a v6?

OmniWeb 5.x has grown long in the tooth and I reluctantly have switched first to Safari, then to Chrome. they are simply faster, more responsive browsers. I miss site preferences, managed workspaces, and I love their implementation of side tabs, but I just need better performance from my browser.

I have recently switched to Camino for the same reason.
It is faster than Safari and is in development for Camino 3.
 
I, too, wish OmniWeb were more of a priority for the Omni Group. I understand, of course, that it's hard to devote development resources to a free application.

OmniWeb does so many things right, I find I can't leave. Like others, I find Workspaces, Site-specific Preferences, the Tab drawer, and other big features unmatched by other browsers.

But it's also small things that are just right in OmniWeb:
  • Save Window Size - temporary window resize doesn't stick for new windows
  • free ".com" for URLs
  • icons in the Status Bar
I'm here for the duration.

I was just talking to my girlfriend about this; she always gives me crap for still using OW, but I every time I've tried to switch to a different browser, I just miss all the little tweaks and features that make OW so special.

How many people can honestly say they *love* their web browser?

I realize OW is at this point something the OG developers work on in their spare time, and isn't a priority (and I understand why), but its still sad to see such a great piece of software slowly dying.

I'd be super grateful to see OW 6, but I'm not holding my breath.

:'-(
 
I too have a disability, not sight but cerebral palsy; having this browser has given me a tool; the browser meets and exceeds expectations, and is my default browser; other's have given what the browser has, my need for it however comes as the features assist me.
