Ive been using it pretty much the day it came out and its still awesome. The betas are. Fast.
Wow that's a blast from the past - I forgotten about it. Maybe I'll reload it. I took it off my system years ago because it wasn't fast. If things have improved, maybe I'll look at it again.
Wow interesting, so there are still updates for it? Is it actually optimized for Mavericks?
I test them.
Yes, updates all the time, probably once a day or every other day. I think I had two today.
This is a joke, right?
No updates since 21/06/12 - and, yes It is my main browser.
Correction: I see that you are referring to Beta builds for 10.9 +. Carry on, Sir.
Duff-Man says...I used to be an Omniweb user in the early OS X days but in recent years have pretty much stuck with Safari. I still keep a copy around though and actually fired it up last week when I was testing out a side that Safari was doing funky things with. I still like Omniweb, decent browser...oh yeah!
They have updates almost everyday.
Previously used OmniWeb as my primary browser. Haven't tried any of the newer betas under Mavericks. Has the status of 1Password integration improved from the stable releases?
Amazing! I never thought they actually would still be updating it. Used it alot in the past. Going to check it out on Mavericks then, thanks!
That little per page control panel thingy is awesome. You can set per page preferrences for pop up windows and text size and color
I downloaded it and I'll play with it again, but I'm not entirely sure its updated all the time, given the date stamp indicates its been last modified 2 years ago - perhaps that's not accurate.
I saw the test builds, but they do have the warning that they may not be stable. I'll download the latest one to compare/contrast with older flavor.
Those are standard warnings for any beta. Ive been running the betas for a very long time and its never crashed on me, not once.
I used to use and like it many moons ago. Like many here, I'd assumed it was long gone.
Personally, I tend to stick to Safari unless I find a compelling reason not to. I'm pretty happy with Safari these days so I guess there's not much reason to stray elsewhere, although I must admit, I'm tempted to give OmniWeb a quick test drive just for old times sake!
I've just tried the latest OmniWeb and while it seems great it's just not for me.
They are supposed to update all the graphics within the browser and such?
I'm really interested in whether 1Password will come to OmniWeb 6.
Under a topic about Sleipnir:
Previews in tabs are, I think, more effective in OmniWeb.
At their largest, with 6.0 test (v625 r213646):
Near their smallest:
At https://gotofail.com/ with OmniWeb on Mavericks:

OmniWeb is not dormant
With at eight builds since 6th November, the most recent of which was distributed yesterday, I can't agree that it's dormant.
Indeed the browser is still in dev.
and yet I'm so stuck in the iCloud ecosystem now that using anything but Safari is way too cumbersome. Maybe I need to look at lastpass or something.
Yes, but what about Tiger/Leopard builds? I got Omniweb for some of my Tiger and Leopard builds, and it works nicely! (for my paster PPC machines, Leopard Webkit is better, but this browser really holds out a nice pair of crutches for things like my (Tiger) 800Mhz iBook G4.
I am asking this because the current build is great, although certain things are becoming outdated.
As a SL user, I just wonder what is the main advantage of using OmniWeb over Firefox? Or even the outdated Safari 5.1?
OmniWeb on Leopard
I'll probably install Leopard on an iMac this evening. If I do so, I'll add OmniWeb and give it some thought.
I do have it on my Leopard machine right here, as I may have said. Again, it's not faster than Leopard Webkit, but it saves my slower Tiger machines' butts. Then again, VERY specific features on certain sites will not work. As for YouTube, everything seems to work fine... surprising, as Google likes to push new web standards every 5 minutes, even if they don't re-arrange their products' horrid interfaces.
I am hoping a new Omniweb version supports Tiger, or at least Leopard... Does it look like it may?
