OmniWeb is designed to provide you with the best user experience you'll find in a Web browser.

People who use and love the Mac (and Mac OS X in particular) do so because of the sum of all the little things; the attention to detail that makes the Mac user experience superior. Omni knows this, and built the only browser that has the same level of detail. OmniWeb draws on the full beauty of Mac OS X's Quartz graphics, and truly leverages the Aqua interface with drawers, sheets, customizable toolbars, and more.

More than just a pretty face, OmniWeb comes packed with cool features that make your time on the Web more more...

What's New

Version 5.11.2:
  • OmniWeb is now signed with Developer ID so it works well with Gatekeeper on OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion

I continue to use Mac Tiger Intel 10.4.11 on an iMac Core Duo 20", 2gigs ram, so using a contemporary browser is a problem because very few support Tiger. Omniweb 5.11.2 meets my requirements perfectly as it is built (not much of a techie!!), I believe, on the Safari Web Kit, so it emulates Safari 5, where with Tiger I can only use Safari 4.1.3. Flash, Java seem to work perfectly, especially with Google Drive, allowing me to upload both files folders. Omniweb is quick, stable, reliable. I was able to import my Ten Four Fox/Firefox bookmarks to this contemporary browser. TFF Intel was very buggy, Firefox was legacy, even Opera was legacy, so with Omniweb, I can continue to use Tiger, my favourite OS, with a newer technology browser.

Troulbe after I took the update! I visited a site and now every time I open Omni I get That Page! I DID change settings to "empty"! there are several functions that are marked oneway but perform other wise. GRRRRR!

I am forever searching for a better browser that gives me some features but doesn’t become a bloated everything net app like Firefox or Chrome. I use Safari when I can but add a few extensions and it becomes slow and buggy
So then I see Omniweb 6, (used omniweb before and quite liked it, but gave up after a while) used the post below went to the website downloaded and began to use, its excellent.
I have to ask where is the money in browsers is it in the search engines, tracking info and surfing and selling it on, why produce one?
My fave of all time was Shiira, where is that now?

I remember Shiira! That was a rockin' little browser...developed by someone in Japan, as I recall. I've been using the 6.0 Omniweb betas, and while it was a little shakey in the earlier betas, recently they've really getting down to a stable beast. I love how fast it is, the side tabs, the ***workspaces** and how little ram and cpu is uses compared to any of the other browsers. I'm so glad it didn't fall by the wayside as this company focuses on its "big dogs" and iOs apps.

Of course as soon as I decide to give up and move to another browser a test version of OmniWeb 6 is released. You can read about it here and follow the download link if you like.

AWESOME!! Thanks so much for posting this. OW 6.0 is working fine (Mavericks on an late 2008 iMac) with no obvious big glitches after hours of use. So glad this great browser isn't going to fade away. Thank you Penguirl!

I paid for OmniWeb 4 and 5 and never regretted it, it was worth every penny to me then. Sadly in it's current state even free is too much.

I've been desperately holding onto OmniWeb for years now for it's features such as per-site preferences but it's just become too slow and unable to keep up with current web features. I have reluctently switched to iCab because it most closely replaces OmniWeb's features.

If OmniWeb is updated and brought to modern standards I will switch back in a heartbeat, until then it is just a pleasant memory.

Haven't used it enough to warrant a full-on review rating; however, I find the side-drawer tabs to be cumbersome and slow. Additionally, I have found that clicking links that would normally automatically open a separate smaller window or new tab for an audio player doesn't work unless one chooses "open with a new tab/window".

But the big bummer is that running videos uses major CPU. Activity monitor shows three different processes using over 100% cpu in my duo core machine, and the fan starts a whirring.

That said, it seems to be a fast browser, and I use it as an adjunct/auxillary one sometimes with this or that workhorse browser. But ixnay on the video viewage.

I love this browser and it has some great features (shortcuts, site preferences), but it has too many little bugs that seem to take forever to fix. I think I'm about to abandon it.

I have used Omniweb since 2002. I was glad to pay for it then and I use it now quite frequently. It has numerous features that other browsers lack and they are unique to Omniweb. It is a polished browser and I still love it after years of using it.

I love OmniWeb, but my basic complain is that, since it has been made a free product, it seems to be something like an orphan within Omni's scheme of things, they do very little to update and improve it. I think it needs some equivalent of Safari's extensions, specifically those extensions that prevent Google tracking and otherwise enhance privacy and security. I also really like Safari's Top Sites page and wish that Omni had something similar.

And of course when other unnamed browsers upgrade every few weeks there are huge cries of protest and derision. OW doesn't upgrade often because it doesn't need to. It already does the basic job a serious browser needs to do. If you want to eliminate Google tracking go to Google Dashboard (search for it), "Pause" your Google tracking, and delete your Google history. As long as you keep Google in "Pause" it won't track you even though its bots will still visit the pages you browse. If you want something like Safari's Top Sites look at the "Most Visited" file on OW's Bookmarks Menu.
