Monday's the day...

... at least of OmniGroup. On Monday, OG will release the public beta version of OmniWeb 5. This is an important day for me, personally, because... OmniWeb 3.x was the only browser for Rhapsody DR2, really (the first version of 'Mac OS X' that I was actively using, on a PowerMac 9500/200 and an AMD K6/200 machine). And when Apple released Mac OS X 10.0, OmniWeb was the only browser that didn't suck (remember how sluggish IE was?). With OmniWeb 4.5, OG turned to Apple's WebCore as the driver behind the browser, which added the speed necessary to the best web browser from a usability standpoint. OmniWeb 5, if all goes well, will not only be one of the fastest web browsers on the Macintosh platform, it'll also go a step further in usability with its feature set. In the days of free browsers, OmniWeb is the only pay-browser that actually is worth its money.

"Smart File Sharing"

Wei-Meng Lee writes in his column at about Lava Software's PC-Mac-NET FileShare. However, I'd rather see feature articles about how easy it is to make FTP the basis for such an effort. At least from the Mac side. And there's free FTP-Server software for the Windows side, too.
