Some interesting features of OmniWeb including the way it organises Tabs and the Site Preferences setting. Unlike most other browsers, OmniWeb organises tabs in a drawer, you can see the screenshot if you want to. The Site Preferences allows users to control each individual site's preferences such as images loading, cookies, JavaScript, ads blocking, ... etc allows users to control security on site bases. We noted this is very similar to Site Control concept introduced in Netscape 8. (Netscape 8 is only available for Windows.)
