Flash blocking improved with new features
The Camino Project has released an update to its self-titled browser for Mac OS X. Version 2.0 adds a tab overview feature that allows users to quickly browse all open tabs in a layout preview. Tabbed browsing has also been improved with drag-and-drop rearranging, a scrollable bar, and a dedicated menu listing all of the open tabs.
New processes are designed to protect against phishing and malware, bringing the browser up to speed with other popular alternatives such as Firefox and Safari. Growl support provides notifications when downloads complete, while the icon also bounces in the dock.
Users now have more control over the annoyance blocking feature which controls pop-ups, ads and Flash animations. Sites that require Flash or pop-ups can be added to an exception list, while the blocking continues to work on all other sites.
Camino 2 is available as a free download for systems running Mac OS X 10.4 or higher.
