    For those who use this browser, version 1.0 will be released on the 14th of This month (February).

    If you've never heard of it, check it out at http://caminobrowser.org/

    A nicer-looking version of Firefox for the Mac? I'll have to check it out. Thanks for the heads-up. :)

    Yeah I've heard of it, just haven't actually looked at it before. You use it?

    Not a Mac user so I've never tried it, but I thought Camino was fairly well known and used by Mac users.

    Had you confused with Geffy for a minute, thinking you had a Mac laptop. :s

    It's quite a nice browser, definitely nicer than the mess that is Firefox on OS X (Fx is getting better though), I just keep coming back to Safari every time I try and switch away from it.

    Just found out, the latest builds of Camino are also universal.

    Apparently the only browser, other than safari, to run Intel native. :)

    I always liked the Camino chrome. I even had a couple of skins for Firefox and Maxthon that looked like it. :)
    That's all I really know about it though.

    Firefox OS X - Slow + Native = Camino.

    About all there is to know really. Of course there's some things missing from Fx, and some that aren't in Fx... but that's the basics of it :)

    I particularly like the fact that you can use the system-wide spell checking in Camino, unlike Fx, plus there's other OS X system based niceties which Fx doesn't pick up on.
