Camino 1.0.1 released

The Camino Project has released Camino 1.0.1. The free Camino browser is the only native Mac OS X browser using Mozilla.org’s Gecko HTML rendering engine (version 1.8), the same rendering engine used by the popular Firefox 1.5 web browser.

What’s new:
• Fixed several critical security issues, including those fixed in version 1.8.0.3 of the Mozilla Gecko rendering engine.
• Upgraded the bundled Java Embedding Plugin (http://javaplugin.sf.net) to version 0.9.5+d
• Improved ad-blocking, especially of German ads
• Enabled the opening of local SVG files
• Fixed an issue where Camino on Intel-based Macs was unable to read Keychain entries stored by Camino on PowerPC-based Macs.

Camino features:
• Universal Binary – Camino is now a universal binary, allowing it to run natively on both PowerPC- and Intel-based Macs.
• New Tab Bar Appearance – The new tab bar appearance allows for easier usability.
• Download Manager Pause/Resume – The download manager now supports pause and resume and has been highly optimized and revised for better performance.
• Annoyance Blocking – With built-in ad- and pop-up blocking, Camino now allows you to ignore the things you hate most.
• Certificate Support – The addition of certificate support yields better security.
• Java Embedding Plugin – JEP improves Java performance immensely.
• Form Fill from Address Book – Form fill from Address Book makes filling in those pesky web forms much easier.
• History Searching – Finding past web pages is even easier with history searching built-in to the History Manager.
• Support for More Web Standards – Thanks to the Gecko rendering engine, Camino now supports SVG, the tag, and JavaScript 1.6, as well as improved CSS 2 and CSS 3 support.

  1. using camino full-time on 10.3.9. It’s much faster for me than safari though i heard with 10.4 the 2 browsers are really close.

    camino still prints to pdf a little weird compared to safari in 10.3.9. doubt this version of camino has fixed that.

    i stopped using firefox as it feels like a Windows port, the ‘x’ to close tabs is on the right instead of on the tab itself and other stuff.

  2. Camino is Firefox on the “Mac steroid”…
    I like it as much as I like Safari. Safari doubles as an RSS reader while Camino doesn’t. Camino renders pages made for Explorer better than Safari does, and has less difficulties dealing with some languages than Safari. From time to time, I need quit Safari and restart it (might be a cache related bug). That also used to be the case with Camino, but not anymore.

  3. I use Camino exclusively – 100% of the time. If something better ever comes out I’ll switch, until then – it’s Camino all the way.

    Don’t forget to check out CamiTools as well (Goggle search it) – Excellent add on that inreases functionality.

    @Loooong wait for ShortHorn – What version of OS X are you using and on what hardware? The Camino forums are great and you will receive fast replies – great group over there:
