Mac OS X application developer The Omni Group has released its first public beta of the next major version of its Web browser, OmniWeb.

OmniWeb 4.5 public beta 1 is the first version of the Omni Group's Web browser to incorporate WebCore and JavaScriptCore frameworks from Apple -- the same frameworks Apple uses for its own Web browser, Safari. As a result, OmniWeb 4.5 sports improved support for CSS, HTML, XHTML and JavaScript, according to The Omni Group.

Other changes include enhancements and bug fixes. More specifically, improvements been made to bookmarks, AutoFill, plug-ins, history indexing and more.

This is not OmniWeb 4.5's first incarnation -- The Omni Group previously offered a "Sneaky Peek" release to registered users of OmniWeb's previous release version. This is the first public beta of OmniWeb 4.5, however.

OmniWeb 4.5 beta 1 requires Mac OS X 10.2 or later.
