Camino 1.1 beta improves security, privacy

Camino 1.1 beta released

The Camino Project has released Camino 1.1 beta, a new version of the popular open-source Mac browser based on same code-base as Firefox. The developers aim to create a more Mac-like experience: the new browser "combines the awesome visual and behavioral experience that has been central to the Macintosh philosophy with the powerful web-browsing capabilities of the Gecko rendering engine." The beta version includes improved pop-up blocking options as well as improves privacy and security features, warning users if the login form on a website differs from the form used when saving the password. Version 1.1 now also supports Kerberos authentication used in many internal networks and delivers new "annoyance blocking" features that allow users to disable all plugins as well as block Flash animations until the user clicks on them. Like its Firefox counterpart, Camino can now restore tabs and windows that were open before an unexpected quit and can also optionally save a list of all active tabs and windows when the user quits and restore them when launching Camino again.
