OmniWeb 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 version 632.0.110

Version 632.0.110:

Note: Now requires OS X 10.14 or later

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.)

  • macOS 11 Compatibility - Implemented support for catching crashes on macOS 11 (Big Sur)
  • Disable JavaScript - Reimplemented the site and global preference for enabling and disabling JavaScript. (This setting requires macOS 11.)
  • Authentication Prompts - Reimplemented support for authenticating with a web server

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.

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.

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 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.

This is a magnificent web browser. I've been using it for years (back when it was still shareware) and it's never let me down. I discontinued its use for a while when Safari 5 was released, but OmniWeb always worked best for me in terms of RAM & CPU usage. It did however take me a while to get used to the different tabs system again - would be great if an option was added that allowed Safari-style tabs in OmniWeb.
