OmniWeb 5.6 now available!

by Troy on October 24, 2007

Okay okay. I admit it. If you've been following along with our sneaky peeks during 5.6 development there isn't a whole lot new here. But I must take this opportunity to thank all of you testers out there because none of this would be possible without you.

But! If you haven't been running the sneaky peeks, this little bit of news that OmniWeb 5.6 is now totally complete and ready for your downloading slash browsing slash enjoying pleasure may be just the bit of news you need to top your day! New updated rendering engine (about a year and a half of development has gone into this thanks to the WebKit crew). Inline PDF support, Web Inspector, support for the Drosera JavaScript debugger, improved JavaScript and plug-in support are all there. Bug fixes to syncing the UI and bookmarks, crashes and other stability issues have been corrected. We've even made sure that upgrading to leopard will go smoothly for you. So if you've experienced some performance problems, have had trouble displaying pages or, you know, plan to upgrade your OS this Friday…

Go give it a try! Download and release notes can be found here.
