OmniWeb 5.0 in 2003

Newsfactor reports that Omnigroup's OmniWeb will hit version 5.0 in early 2003. The advantages to be expected include speed and accuracy in rendering:

"We're rewriting the whole display engine, everything above the HTML parser, so it no longer misuses Cocoa classes. Instead, we're going to write a lot more custom classes to make our rendering much faster and much more accurate," William Jon Shipley, president of the Omni Group, told NewsFactor.
