ummm omniweb isn't dead..... they release builds of the next release almost daily and they get better all the timeOriginally posted by AmbitiousLemon
(unlike omniweb that hasnt released a new version in months). frankly i think omniweb is dead. as dead as ie. it was good in its day but it is yesterday's news. with the mozilla code reaching version 1.0 and macho/chimera builds demonstrating blazing speeds and frequent updates i think omniweb is dead. chimera .2 will be the death toll for omni im afraid.
i'm telling you omniweb is NOT DEAD... in fact they update the browser a whole heck of a lot... check out their sneaky peaks--they are usually stable and they are much faster than the public release (i posted the link to the sneaky peaks in a previous post--PLEASE go check them out)Originally posted by AmbitiousLemon
what i meanth by omniweb is dead is that they havent released a single update in months. they have been in 4.1b forever with no signs of ever coming out with something new any time soon. they cant render pages properly and they are one of the slowest browsers around. all they have is looks. and with chimera being updated quickly and being the fastest browser available for osx i was saying that omniweb is dead. because they arent keeping up with the competition.
When all of this started, Kishba, it was AL who was the OW supporter. Having exchanged a few posts with him on this, I know that he has checked out some fairly recent sneakypeeks. The thing that makes OW look as if it is dead is that a) even with the latest sneakypeek (which I downloaded yesterday), it is still much slower than Chimera, which is only at ver 0.2 (soon!). The only thing OW has had going for it is that it's the only browser using Quartz anti-aliasing. Chimera (which runs on the same Gecko engine Mozilla uses, so it's fast as hell) promises to add this with v 0.2). With a fast browser adding Quartz, OW (a slow browser) must make huge strides to catch up.Originally posted by kishba

dude talk about someone needing to pull their head out of the sand. dude try reading the thread before you attack someone. as chmorely pointed out all this started with me raving about ow. i download sneakypeaks on a very regular basis. im saying they are dead because they havent released anything for the public and even their "sneaky" updates dont compete with the competition. the onlt thing ow has going for it is quartz and soon they wont be the only one with that.Originally posted by sparkleytone
ow is fast and looks great. if you wont check out the sneakypeeks, then shut the hell up aboout lack of updates and OW being dead. We have all tried to pull your head out of the sand, just look at other threads. I like you AL, but you gotta shutup about OW.
my thoughts exactly... ow is just really really spiffyOriginally posted by sparkleytone
i'm excited about chimera, BUT. a big but. i will not try it until it utilizes quartz. until then i cannot go back. omni just looks too good and i am spoiled. if chimera can pull off the AA, have a passable skin, and still pull off blazing speed, then I'll switch. Simple. I restate that I will NOT downloads another browser until there is one with quartz rendering and AA.
