Back in the day, I used OmniWeb exclusively in MacOS X as it was one of the few browsers optimized for the OS. Eventually, I switched to Camino (anyone?) when OmniGroup slowed development.

Maybe I'll load it up for the memories...

I have just tried your suggestion, and it does not work. On next launch, it reverts to default size, which is way too narrow for comfort.

I did the reverse, because Camino fell way behind on today's needed filtering features.

That is odd, just tried (firstly I dragged the window to make my preferred size) then I right (second) clicked the Roccat icon in my dock and chose quit. I then relaunched and it used my new size - I even tried having multiple windows and they all restored to the size I set them too. So not sure why it's not working for you, what OSX cat are you using?

Agreed I can't understand why people still use Camino, it's ugly, it's slow, it's not the most secure and it's "barely in development" if it still is.

Thanks for your post, because it may have shown up a problem with Sizewell, which I use system-wide. I will check it out and report later. (I'm on SL).

Nope, that didn't work, sadly.

Hmmm I tried it on a Snow Leopard iMac at my work place and you're right.
It works perfectly in Mountain Lion and Lion though.

Really strange..

Thanks for the update - I can stop trying to fix it now, and hope for a fix from the developer.

On the idea of browser with page previews in the tabs, Opera does this in the way I've found myself to be the most comfortable. Opera retains traditional tabs, but when you roll your mouse over the tab, a preview of the webpage is displayed.

I guess everyone is different - I find that irritating (personally) - with Roccat you can press the Visi tab button and it will hide the tabs so you can be using it with the smallest amount of wasted screen estate and simply press it again to view visitabs (however I have quite a big monitor so I keep them there)

Also I find the main function of the visual tabs are to easily find the tab you are looking for - having to hover over each tab is annoying (I know you can drag it down in opera to reveal visual tabs - but then you have a giant tray wasted space which looks fugly IMO.

I personally think Roccat and OmniWeb are better - but I think Roccat has the edge as it's more customisable - can have normal tabs or visual tabs of any size at the top (like opera) but you can also have it in a drawer (like omniweb) or at the bottom or on the sizes.
