    Just open the history panel from the tools menu, select the porn sites you wish to delete, and press delete.

    Or if you want the history files, they're at:



    ~/Library/Application Support/OmniWeb/



    Just be sure to close OmniWeb before deleting the HistoryIndex files.

    Related question. How do you view the files stored in your cache? In iCab you can go offline then select a bookmark. If it is in the cache it will be displayed. How about OW?

    neutrino23:

    OmniWeb uses a very differently structured cache than other browsers. Long story short, there is no cache file; it's all kept in RAM. Therefore, you cannot directly access it like the files that iCab generates. OmniWeb's cache is optimized for broadband computers with connections and that are "always on" since Mac users are less likely to quit the program once it's open with OSX.

    Hmm, that is interesting. Can you expand your short story to something a bit longer? Or point me to somewhere that explains that method?

    I'm no expert; so, I'd better not try to explain it myself. I think Rick or Ken explained it at MacNN's forums a while ago, but I can't find a link.

    Curious. It seems that when I visited their booth at MWSF they said I could do this if I enabled it in the preferences. I could easily have misunderstood given the crush of people in the booth.
