Many of you know that my browser of choice on OS X is Camino. Camino is the Gecko rendering engine (the same base as Firefox, Seamonkey, and others) aqua-fied to run as a antive Mac app. While Firefox runs well on Mac, it still uses XUL to draw its widgets, so it doesn’t really fit in with the look and feel of real Mac apps.
Enter Camino, which not only looks and feels like Mac, but tastes like it too by behaving like a real Mac app. Aqua widgets, proper alert boxes, a prefs panel that fits the theme. Camino is a fantastic browser and runs extremely well and is very stable. And today they release 1.5 – a pretty major milestone – and reveal their new website.
Congrats to the Camino team.
