Camino browser is kaput

Stuart Morgan for The Camino Project:

After a decade-long run, Camino is no longer being developed, and we encourage all users to upgrade to a more modern browser. Camino is increasingly lagging behind the fast pace of changes on the web, and more importantly it is not receiving security updates, making it increasingly unsafe to use.

Fortunately, Mac users have many more browsers to choose from than they did when Camino started ten years ago. Former Camino developers have helped build the three most popular – Chrome, Firefox, and Safari – so while this is the end of Camino itself, the community that helped build it is still making the web better for Mac users.

Thank you to all our loyal users, and to everyone who contributed in countless ways over the years to make Camino what it was.

  1. I have a copy of Camino on my dinosaur Mac Pro (and others such as iCab) for cross browser testing. I haven’t used Camino in several months, but I still will miss it. For several years it was a viable alternative browser.

  2. Camini has always been my quicky, no frills alternative browser without junk filtering. I saw the EOL message this morning and was 🙁 This isn’t the first time Camino stopped development, but this is most likely the last time.

  3. Not happy, my work involves working with sites and documents that use ancient TTF encodings that Webkit has long forgotten about, but Gecko still understands perfectly. Camino allows me to avoid the operating-system-masquerading-as-a-browser that Firefox has become. It is quick and minimalist. Oh, well, I suppose it’s not going to stop working next week.

  4. Yeah sad seems my iMac G4 (iGloo-my word ;-)] well probably be put away and eventually sold. Must say i love this machine. Never had a problem with but the current software has left this behind.
