10.3: Print web pages to TextEdit

Yes, I concede I only tested this hint in Safari -- I didn't realize I hadn't mentioned Safari in the hint. Too bad it doesn't work in other browsers, but it is a nice perk and significant improvement over Jaguar.

For those who really need this functionality, a switch to Safari (if they aren't already using it) seems necessary. I wonder what percentage of Mac OS X users do not use Safari? I'd guess a sizable majority do use Safari, but actual data (as opposed to a whole bunch of individual anecdotes) would be interesting. Rob, do you have access stats by browser and platform for MOXH?

I use OmniWeb because it is pretty much Safari with more options. It uses the same rendering engine as Safari and has much better filters, cookie handling, bookmarks, browser versioning, forms handling, etc. Safari does a few tricks better too, such as tabs and all. It all comes down to preferences but OmniWeb definitely gives Safari a run for it's money.

Safari is free, OmniWeb is $30, i think my money is much better spent on Safari.

You only get nagged once in a while with OmniWeb if you don't register it. The registration nag is actually kinda funny too, I used to enjoy seeing it actually.

I gladly payed for OmniWeb considering how much work they put into it and all the cool features it has over Safari. $30 is chump change considering the fact I probably use it at least 1/2 hour a day every day. In one year alone that works out to 16 cents a day. It's been a couple of years since I've registered so I've definitely gotten my moneys worth from OmniWeb.
