Printed from releases Camino 1.0 browser

updated 11:20 am EST, Tue February 14, 2006

Camino 1.0 released today release the open-source, Mac-specific Camino 1.0 browser. The native Mac OS X browser uses the Mozilla's Gecko rendering engine and is now available as a Universal binary as well as other new features, including a new tab bar appearance, support for download manager pause/resume, annoyance blocking, certificate support, a Java Embedding plug-in, the ability to form fill from address book, inline history and bookmark searching, an upgrade from Mozilla Gecko 1.7 to 1.8, bug and security fixes, and more. "Camino makes your web experience more productive, more efficient, more secure, and more fun. It looks and feels like a Mac OS X application should, because it was designed exclusively for Mac OS X and the high standards set by Mac users." Camino 1.0 requires Mac OS X 10.2 or later.

    this browser just keeps on being the best. Nightly builds rock too.

    It's been my favorite since .4 - fast and stable and beautiful.

    Try it, you won't lose

    This browser always amazes me. Install it, it is a native cocoa application and use it if a site does not work fine with Safari. I mean at least for that.

    You will be amazed with this release.

    Does this support the extensions that are available to Firefox/mozilla? You know, all those useful things to aid in blocking ads, modifying the tab bar, and doing other fun stuff to make your surfing more to your work habits?

    It works.

    No extensions. But it's fast and free.


    1) Live Bookmark sync either locally or .Mac, or both. 2) URL Auto-complete doesn't require arrow keying or selection of guessed URLs. (or preference)

    Probably the wrong place for these. But, alas.

    Great browser

    Yes, this is the wrong place for requests (check the Camino forums where the developers ask for feedback.)

    I just recently switched from FireFox to Camino and love it. Not quite as customizable as FireFox but the best features are there and it's a clean, native Mac OS X app with lower CPU utlization than FireFox.

    re: extensions

    It doesn't support Firefox extensions or anything, but it does have built-in ad blocking, and CamiTools (separate download) may provide the options you're looking for in extensions.

    The tab bar's appearance can be modified with themes, but otherwise can't be afaik.

    It's a great thing

    that Mac users have large selection of excellent web browsers (more so than any other platform). Safari is one of them, but Camino works better on some internal company web sites I have to use that are designed with IE in mind. It's also noticeable faster than Firefox on my ol' "less than cutting edge" Mac. I'm glad the developers decided to keep on working on it.
