Although it seems rather absurd, in this day and age, to pay for a web browser — there are at least 4 high-quality free browsers available for OS X — I decided to give the OmniWeb 5.5 Beta a try, mostly because most everything that emerges from the brilliant minds at OmniGroup is golden.
I thought that my little old iMac was just getting slow in its old age — either that, or my Internet connection was wilting. OmniWeb disabused me of both notions: this browser flies. It’s also got a couple of nice features — like a new take on “tabs” — that remind me that browser UI hasn’t moved very far in the past 5 years.
I’ve got 29 days left on the free trial; so far, I’m delighted enough to seriously considering upping for a license and making it my primary browser. More later.
