The Omni Group today released OmniWeb 4.0 for Mac OS X. This groundbreaking web browser was written entirely in the advanced object oriented programming framework, called Cocoa, and leverages many of the core technologies and strengths of Mac OS X for an incredible user experience.
"Weire extremely proud of OmniWeb," said Wil Shipley, President of Omni. "And as long-time advocates of the benefits of Cocoa, we are excited to finally unveil OmniWeb for Appleis ultramodern operating system - Mac OS X."
"With state-of-the-art technologies, such as the stunning iAquai interface and a new Quartz 2D graphics engine, Mac OS X is truly the worldis most advanced operating system," said Clent Richardson, Appleis vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations. "OmniWeb represents a considerable amount of effort, and we are thrilled that Omni Group is taking advantage of all that Mac OS X offers to developers."
"Our first version of OmniWeb pioneered many firsts for web browsers," continued Mr. Shipley. "And that was in 1993, long before Netscape incorporated or before SpyGlass sold Internet Explorer to Microsoft. Over the years, weive been proud to introduce many of the ideas that are now considered standard components of web browsers - including draggable links and draggable, hierarchical bookmarks. And weire introducing many new features with this version."
With this 4.0 release, OmniWeb is the first browser on any platform to remember values in forms simply by bookmarking their pages, to allow full-text searches through pages youive recently visited, and to store network passwords in a secure Keychain. Of course, OmniWeb also has adopted the best features of browsers on other platforms, including blocking suspected ads and allowing users to block being tracked with cookies on a site-by-site basis.
OmniWeb is available as shareware for US$29.95. You can find more information at The Omni Groupis Web site.
