The Omni Group released OmniWeb 5 public beta yesterday. It offers a number of remarkable new features, but it is quite definitely a beta. Nevertheless, I’m using it, and getting joy out of things like workspaces, tab thumbnails, and built-in URL shortcuts for things like Google searches. My major stumbling block right now is that the downloads feature rarely seems to work. Stuff that I click on just seems to sit in the downloads queue doing nothing. I’m eagerly awaiting a more stable version.

John Gruber has written a much more thorough review.

More reviews abound. Chris Clark’s good and bad.
