OmniWeb, OmniDazzle, OmniDiskSweeper, OmniObjectMeter Now Free

The Omni Group's OmniWeb, OmniDazzle, OmniDiskSweeper and OmniObjectMeter are all a little more affordable as of Wednesday now that the company is offering the applications for free.

OmniWeb is the company's Web browser application, OmniDazzle is a cursor highlighter and visual screen effects tool, OmniDiskSweeper is a utility that helps save disk space by finding large and unneeded files, and OmniObjectMeter is a developer utility for memory optimization.

The company decided to offer the four applications for free because they aren't being updated as frequently as OmniOutliner, OmniGraffle, OmniFocus and OmniPlan.

Omni Group said on its blog that even though the apps are now free, they aren't being discontinued. "We aren't ruling out future updates at all, and we're keeping our options open," the blog entry stated. "We have lots of ideas for what we'd like to add to these products, and it's possible that at some point we'll have more resources to allocate to them."

OmniWeb, OmniDazzle, OmniDiskSweeper and OmniObjectMeter are available for download at the Omni Group Web site.
