OmniWeb for Mac

By The Omni Group Free Editors' Rating

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff May 27, 2013

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.

Developer's Description

OmniWeb is a full-featured native web browser for Mac OS X. Highly multi-threaded and written using Apple's Cocoa frameworks, OmniWeb is designed to provide you with the best user experience you'll find in a web browser. We think it's important to polish every user interaction to make sure that the browser acts the way you want it to--so you can stop thinking about the application you're using and just get at the information you want, quickly. (If you don't like anything about OmniWeb's user experience, please let us know!)
