Editors' Review

Even though OmniWeb for Mac is well designed and equipped with some useful options, this Web browser ultimately doesn't offer too many additional features that could set it apart from other, more mainstream browsers.

While many browsers compete for users, including Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Safari, among several others, most offer similar, if not identical, features. Like those browsers, OmniWeb is offered for free but it ups the ante by promising to provide the best user experience. While there were no tutorials, the program's interface was similar enough to other browsers that it was easy to get started. Well-labeled buttons indicate functions for moving forward, backward, and refreshing pages. The URL area is located in the same area as with most other browsers. One additional button displays tabs, but includes a small thumbnail of the pages instead of just text, which was a helpful feature. Another neat feature is the option to create shortcuts to any Web site. Additionally, there are many preferences options, including menu changes, security, and plug-ins, among others. The pages, themselves, rendered well without any errors, but scrolling up and down did create some minor twitching in the window.

While we didn't find any revolutionary features on offer, OmniWeb for Mac works well, overall. For those who aren't happy with their current browser, OmniWeb for Mac is worth a try.
