OmniWeb 5.8 Browser Released

by , 4:25 PM EDT, September 29th, 2008

After a period of beta trials, called sneaky peek, OmniWeb 5.8 was released on Friday by the Omni Group. OmniWeb 5.8 is based on the same rendering engine as Safari, Webkit 3.1 and includes the latest security patches and features included with Safari 3.1.x such as downloadable fonts, CSS Animation, HTML 5 media tags and client side database storage.

Version 5.8 also adds support for non-POSIX files, and Google Chrome has been added to the list of user agents.


OmniWeb 5.8, showcasing thumbnails

OmniWeb offers a unique, thumbnail based approach to viewing previous Web pages, and the thumbnail sizes can be changed to suit the user. In addition, Workspaces allow the user to collect and maintain various sets of associated Web pages that survive and reload after a reboot (or crash) and site preferences allow the user to define how OmniWeb should interact with individual sites.

OmniWeb 5.8 is priced at US$14.95 and requires Mac OS X 10.4.8 or later.
