The Omni Group has released OmniWeb 4.2b1, a beta update to the company’s full-featured Mac OS X Web browser. The OmniWeb 4.2 beta adds a number of features intended to improve user experience and bring greater compatibility with Web servers. New preferences have been added to improve the process of downloading files and to allow the management of Internet plug-ins. A new ‘Send Link’ function makes it easier to share the address of a Web page over email, and a new ‘Zoomed Text Editor’ lets you input large amounts of text into forms more easily. Support for the Shared Menus protocol has also been added allowing other popular Internet applications such as URL Manager Pro to integrate with OmniWeb.
