Merge multiple OmniWeb5 windows into one tab drawer Web Browsers
I've recently switched my default browser to OmniWeb 5 and stumbled across this nifty little feature. I like to have all my open web pages as tabs in the tab drawer of one master browser window. Occasionally an app or site will manage to pop up a new window when I really wanted it as a tab in my master window.

There is an easy solution. Open the tab drawer of the new window and you will see it's corresponding miniature in the tab drawer. You can drag and drop this into the master window's tab drawer. The new window that you didn't want will then behave as if it was newly opened and load your default page. The page you wanted now resides as a tab in your master window's tab drawer.

You can also go in reverse and break one or more tabs into a new windows or if multiple tabs are selected then you can create a new window with them as tabs for the window already loaded. The command drop down on the tab drawer gives these latter options.

For me, these features alone are worth the license fee!

The thumbnails/tabs in Omniweb can also be cut/copied and pasted between drawers (and even between different workspaces) using the standard command-X/C and command-V keyboard shortcuts.

I should also mention that you can shift/command select multiple thumbnails/tabs at once for drag and dropping or cut/copy/pasting.

There's a typo in the title of this hint; it might prevent someone from finding this hint in the future since a search for "OmniWeb" would not find this hint. If possible, the typo should be fixed .....

Actually there's a much easier way to do this than the way given in the hint; if you simply click and hold on the proxy icon for the window (the icon to the left of the window title in the titlebar) or the icon in the Address Bar (assuming you have that set visible), you can drag that into the tab drawer for your master window instead. That saves you the trouble of opening up the tab drawer for the other window and possibly obscuring the drag target.
