Seattle, WA –August 13, 2004 — The Omni Group has shipped OmniWeb

awaited new version can be downloaded from The Omni Group’s web site,
and soon will be available in most retail software outlets.

greatly enhanced bookmarks, page marking, improved search shortcuts,
site-specific preferences, and more. Additional information is

“I’m really excited about the 5.0 release of OmniWeb, which adds
features never before seen in any other web browser,” said Ken Case,
CEO of The Omni Group. “Now that we’re based on Safari’s fast and
compatible WebCore engine, we’ve been able to spend our design and
development effort thinking of new ways to save you time. For example,
OmniWeb 5.0 is able to remember all of your open windows and tabs, so
you can pick up exactly where you left off after upgrading your
operating system. It remembers different settings–such as ad
blocking–for different web sites, so you don’t waste time switching
your preferences back and forth as you browse. And that’s just the tip
of the iceberg: I encourage you to visit our website and give OmniWeb
5 a try for yourself!”

OmniWeb 5.0 is available as a 30 day trial from
( Note the
trial period includes 30 separate days, not just 30 launches.

OmniWeb 5.0 sells for $29.95. Upgrades to OmniWeb 5.0 from previous
versions are $9.95.
