    Omniweb 5 Beta 1 is out now! I hope Safari's new upgrade will kick its butt!

    I really like it, but it's too slow. I guess this will be fixed shortly, and we have the best browser on earth!

    i agree

    i agree, it has some ways, but it's putting up a fight, hopefully apple will come up with things we haven't seen for a browser yet.

    I just downloaded OmniWeb yesterday. Opened it up for the first time, I think that it works great. It is intuitive just like the Mac itself. I have been trying off and on for a week to import my favorites from IE that's located on OS 9, with out success. When I tried the OmniWeb import function, it easily lead me to my OS 9 System Folder, Preferences, and Favorites. Thank you OmniWeb.

    At first when I went to the iTunes Apple Commercial, it had no sound. When I checked the menu bar, just had to increase the sound. So far it seems very smooth to me.

    OmniWeb beta

    Do you suggest trying out the public beta of OmniWeb 5 or leaving well enough alone (v 4.5) until the final release is done?

    As good as Safari has become, I still prefer the look and feel of OmniWeb--practically to me that means much better cookie handling, image loading as you wish, and more refined bookmark handling.

    It's personal preference when it comes to browsers and I'm glad there is still competition.
