OmniWeb

6.0 test
14 August 2019

Web browser with Safari engine and many enhanced features; now free.

Overview

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 efficient, and more fun. OmniWeb puts you in charge of your browsing experience rather than viewing you as a source of personal information and advertising revenue, as some other browsers do.

What's new in OmniWeb

Version 6.0 test:

A note from developer: these unstable and untested builds are snapshots of our development, updated every few hours. This means that you might actually be the first person to try a particular build and discover that it eats your system. (We hope that doesn't happen, of course, but since we won't have tested the app before giving you access we can't make any guarantees.)

  • Authentication Prompt Crash - fixed a crash encountered whenever an authentication prompt was cancelled

Version 5.8 is like Safari with every Safari add-in already in it. I prefer WebKit over Gecko, and OmniWeb offers that plus additional features such as site preferences and workspaces that further enhance browsing. Oh, and I run 5.8 for hours and the RAM hovers just under 250mb.

OmniWeb lives on in the version 6.0 test series and runs fine on macOS 10.14 Mojave! As of June 26, 2018, the current version is 6.0 test (v630 r313008). I still prefer it for some purposes on the Internet. If you are an OmniWeb fan, fear not the v6.0 tests! I've been enjoying them for years. You can download it from the OmniWeb site under Apps/More. Why hasn't v6 come out of 'testing'? OmniGroup tell me they no longer support OmniWeb. Its testing is something of a hobby, a side interest only. It is set aside when they're busy on other things.

It loads well in SnowLeopard. I feel that the developer has to get it further developed.

OmniWeb used to be my very favorite web browser. But OmniGroup moved along into other realms and neglected it. HOWEVER! OmniGroup is now beta-testing version 6.0, a 64-bit version of OmniWeb that I’m running right now! If you’re running OS X 10.9+ and you’d like to play with the beta of OmniWeb 6, or simply read about what they’re up to, head over to this address: http://omnistaging.omnigroup.com/omniweb/ At the moment, the ‘stable’ test build of v6.0 is “6.0 test(v625 r219164).” But there are several more testy test builds beyond that, if you’re daring. It’s great to see this web browser brought into the future of OS X again.

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! WHERE is the Preferences Folder/Files for Omni? In Mnt. Lion 10.8.3, I do not see it.

I don't believe this version of OmniWeb works on Mtn Lion. If you want to continue using OW delete this version then go to the developer's site and try the latest experimental build of OmniWeb 6.

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.
