Why Ehon is a great free epub book reader for OS X

I think I have a new favorite ebook reader for OS X. That, my friends, is Ehon. It’s meant to be a digital comic book reader and it’s a good one, too, able to open comics in CBR and CBZ formats.

Ehon is great for reading digital comic books. It’s also a fantastic ebook reader that supports epub.

But Ehon also supports epub files and there are a number of reasons why it makes a great ebook reader.

Comical, a great free CBR and CBZ comics reader for OS X, but not for Mountain Lion

Laptop and desktop computers are a great way to read comics. One of my favorite comic book readers for the Mac is Comical. Comical is free and it can read CBR and CBZ files and is available for OS X, Windows, and Linux. But there’s a catch.

Comical for OS X 10.2 to 10.6. Image from Comical website.

Comical runs on older Macs running OS X 10.3 Panther (see screenshot above, from the developer’s website) and OS X 10.2 Jaguar.

I’ve used it on OS X 10.4 Tiger and OS X 10.5 Leopard. It should also run on OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard.

Unfortunately for Comical fans using newer Macs, the app does not run on OS X 10.7 Lion 10.7 or OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. It’s a pity because Comical is a mighty good comic book reader.

Download Comical for OS X 10.2 to 10.6:

Get the Safari Omnibar ahead of OS X Mountain Lion’s Release

Wasn’t it Google that started it all with the what they called the omnibar in the Google Chrome web browser? Basically, instead of separate fields for the web address bar and the search bar, Google Chrome only had its omnibar. In the omnibar, you can either enter the URL of the website you want to go to or use it to search for whatever it is you’re looking for.

The Safari Omnibar, developed by Olivier Poitrey, is a Safari plugin used to unify the location bar and the search bar in Safari.

In Firefox, it was easy enough to add plugins to install an omnibar plugin. I had the Omnibar plugin for Firefox installed on my old iBook G4 and I find it immensely convenient to use. For Safari users, how do you install an Omnibar?
