The Omni Group kicked off the week on Monday with the release of a public Beta of
OmniWeb 5.0, the next generation of their Mac OS X-only Web browser. OmniWeb 5.0’s new features include a tab drawer, saved browsing sessions, updated bookmarks, page marking, better shortcuts, site-specific preferences and more.
You can download the Beta from The Omni Group’s Web site. It requires Mac OS X v.10.2.x (Jaguar) or higher, including 10.3 (Panther), and it will expire on March 3. The company expects to ship the final version in March or April for US$29.95, with free upgrades for earlier versions purchased after December 1, 2003. If you bought an earlier version before then, you can upgrade for $9.95.
And if you need help with OmniWeb 5.0, The Omni Group will also post a Beta of the browser’s user manual on or before Wednesday, February 4.
