My favorite browser in the whole world is OmniWeb. But it ain’t all there. There are a number of pages it doesn’t render right or at all. Sometimes these same pages are screwed up in Safari, as well. Normally everything works in FireFox, but FireFox is ugly and doesn’t have a tab drawer.
Of course if I need to see the site, I need to open it in FireFox. So I wrote an AppleScript to open the currently URL in OmniWeb in FireFox. It is brain dead simple.
tell application “OmniWeb”
set theURL to address of front browser
tell application “Firefox”
Get URL theURL
If you don’t want FireFox to come to the front immediately, take out the activate line
The interesting thing is you don’t always realize when a page isn’t rendering right. For instance I decided just to try out the script. So I’m looking at this page in OmniWeb. Looks like this:
I didn’t really notice the lack of white background. Kind of makes me wonder what I’m missing on other pages.
