OmniWeb 5.6

The Omni Group has announced OmniWeb 5.6, a new release of the Mac OS X Web browser. The new release features visual tabs, workspaces for rapidly saving a snapshot of open web pages, and a range of built-in online productivity tools. This release sports a new browser engine, a new inline PDF viewing feature, and Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) compatibility. Also included is an all new version of WebKit, the same open source web browser engine used by Safari. Also new is a "PDF inline view" feature, where PDF documents open inside the browser, which reduces the number of open windows. Other improvements in OmniWeb 5.6 include a new automatic software update feature; new Chinese localization and updated French, German and Japanese localizations; and improved plug-in and javascript performance. OmniWeb 5.6 is available as a free upgrade for existing OmniWeb 5.x owners. New users can trial OmniWeb for free and license for $15.

The company also announced the Mac OS X Leopard compatibility status for all of their consumer applications, including OmniWeb, OmniGraffle, OmniOutliner, OmniPlan, OmniFocus, OmniDazzle, and OmniDiskSweeper. Current versions of OmniWeb, OmniFocus, and OmniDiskSweeper are Leopard compatible, while OmniGraffle, OmniOutliner, and OmniDazzle run on Leopard in the newest available beta versions. While there are known issues with OmniPlan running on Mac OS X 10.5, a Leopard-ready update is coming soon.
