The Omni Group
has released OmniWeb 4.2 beta, a new in-development version of the company’s Web browser, made exclusively for Mac OS X.
|<?php virtual(“/includes/boxad.inc”); ?>
OmniWeb was one of the first major third-party applications out of the gate for Mac OS X, back when the operating system itself was still a public beta. The browser received praise early on for its support of Apple’s Quartz rendering technology and its speed, thanks to its creation using Apple’s Cocoa application framework.
The Omni Group said that OmniWeb 4.2 improves compatibility with Web servers, and adds new preferences to aid in downloading files and managing Internet plug-ins. What’s more, a new “Send Link” function shares Web page URLs over e-mail, and the “Zoomed Text Editor” lets you input large amounts of text into forms. OmniWeb 4.2 beta also adds support for the Shared Menus protocol, enabling other applications to integrate with OmniWeb.
Other enhancements, bug fixes and other changes have been made too. For the complete list, please check
