The Omni Group today released a beta version of OmniWeb 5.1, the next update to its popular Web browser. OmniWeb 5.1 beta 1 integrates the latest Apple WebCore rendering engine, which offers enhanced standards compliance, performance, and stability. The Omni Group notes that due to the updated WebCore, many Web pages that did not render correctly in OmniWeb 5.0 (but which worked in Safari 1.2.x) will now work in OmniWeb 5.1. The update also includes the ability to tab between form elements (text fields, text areas, buttons, popups, checkboxes, radio buttons, etc.), and offers improved Java compatibility and performance using the Apple-provided Java plug-in for handling Java applets.
