When Camino's web browser launched in February 2002 as Chimera, it rescued many Mac users caught between a dying Internet Explorer and the distant launches of Firefox (Phoenix) and Safari. It's unfortunate, then, that the Camino team has just laid their once-heroic browser to rest. There's little ...

The developers of the venerable Camino web browser announced yesterday that the product is no longer being developed and that users should move on to "a more modern browser." As the team blog notes, "Fortunately, Mac users have many more browsers to choose from than they did when Camino started 1...

Camino seems a bit like the half-forgotten poor sister of Firefox. The goal of the Camino project is to produce a truly OS X-native browser built on the same Gecko rendering engine that drives Firefox. While it was popular among certain Mac geeks for a while (I even remember using it when it was sti...

Camino, the best Gecko-based browser NOT named Firefox 3, has just been updated to version 1.6.3. This update, which seems to have rolled in 1.6.2 along with it (at least I never got the 1.6.2 notification, and I use Camino pretty frequently), sports the latest update to the Gecko 1.8.1 branch, incl...

Just over a month after its 1.6 release, the Camino team has just released version 1.6.1. As Camino's own page states, "Camino 1.6.1 is a stability and security update . . . All users are urged to upgrade." Camino should now be less crash-friendly and nitpicky about search engine additions and compa...

The best browser for the Mac, Camino, has gotten even better with the release of Camino 1.6. I know what some of you are thinking, 'How can you say that Camino is the best browser for the Mac? It doesn't support extensions, it isn't made by Apple, and it won't buy me a pony!' All of those things are...

I have an admission to make: I change browsers on a fairly regular basis (normally, I'm found swapping between Camino and Safari in short succession as I struggle to find a nirvana between the two of them). But what to do with my favourites? Some people I know like to keep browser favourites separat...

We Mac users take our web browsers seriously, which helps account for the fact that there are just so many of them to choose from. For my money the top browser on OS X is Camino (though Safari 3 is closing in fast). Camino, as you can see from the accompanying picture here, makes a big deal out of i...

Mac users have a dizzying array of web broswers to choose from, which makes finding a favorite a tricky thing. My browser of choice has been Camino for a long, long time. It just looks like a Mac app, and it uses the Gecko rendering engine so I get all the goodness of FireFox (sans extentions which ...

Attention Camino users: Version 1.0.4 of your favorite browser is now available. I go back and forth between Camino and Firefox myself, and I've got to say that Camino is nice and snappy on my MacBook Pro. Changes in 1.0.4 include: Improved ad blocking (Yay!) Several security issues fixed Im...

Camino is a great browser that exists somewhere in that place between Safari and Firefox. It's a spawn of Mozilla's darling browser, but it is decidedly far more Mac-like in its functionality and UI. Even cooler still is that Camino has plenty of tricks up its sleeve, such as the ability to add a fo...

TUAW reader Chris Roberts was right: it's been far too long since our last post in The Little Things series, so I figured I'd pick up the slack with a really handy feature of Mac OS X: drag and drop. Sure, most OSes these days can drag and drop at least some things, but Apple has gone to great len...

Over at the Office Google Mac Blog, Mike Pinkerton, Google Mac Team Software Engineer, just announced a Google Tech Talk he gave back in January. Now the reason this is of interest is that Pinkerton also just happens to be the project lead for the Camino web browser and the talk he gave (as part of ...

The hard working folks behind Camino have released Camino 1.1 beta to an eager world. The most important change since alpha 2 is an integrated restore pages feature as you see above. Although it was previously possible to get a plugin to do this called CaminoSession (as we mentioned earlier), it's ...

Correo is an open source mail app that aims to blend Camino with Thunderbird to create the best darn OS X email client out there. This 0.1 isn't exactly feature rich, but you can't expect lots of features from a 0.1 release. At the moment you can check both IMAP and POP email accounts, send email v...
