Surfing privacy in OmniWeb Web Browsers
Hi, I recently noticed that Omniweb logs my web page accesses under the Tools menu in the Error Log. I found that by default the check box for Show HTTP requests (at the top right of the Error Log window) was checked, and there was a nice list of the sites I've recently visited.

For those people for whom privacy is important, i thought this should be pointed out. Disabling this checkbox causes the Error Log function to only actual errors as opposed to all HTTP requests.

Is it really a default setting?

I'm not so sure this is the "default" setting. I checked this out and discovered the box was not checked, and I have never opened that window before.

Wasn't checked for me either (n/t)

It was checked on my 4.1b7 install, and I'm about 99% confident I've never opened that window before...

I'm running the same version as you, robg [4.1 beta 7 (v410)] and the box was unchecked.
