OmniWeb switches to WebKit

The Omni Group has released OmniWeb 5.8, switching the browser's base to the same version of WebKit in use by Safari 3.1. It includes the latest security patches and features of Safari 3.1, including downloadable fonts, CSS animation, HTML 5 media tags and client side database storage. The new version includes upgraded toolbar icons, a Google Chrome user agent option, a bugfix for Leopard's Spaces and support for Non-POSIX file URLs, providing improved compatibility with Dreamweaver and other Carbon and Classic applications.

OmniWeb 5.8 features workspaces, auto-saved browsing sessions, RSS news feeds and tabbed-browsing with a list mode and other flexible features; it is available now for $15. It requires Mac OS X 10.4.8 and above, and offers a 30-days of use demo, differing from standard demos in that users can use the demo on 30 different, random days before the it expires.
