Camino open source OS X web browser reaches 2.1 Alpha 1

Camino, the lightweight, open source Web browser for OS X, has just reached version 2.1 Alpha 1. This release contains significant new features, including improvements to autocompletion and plug-in management, a new offline mode, and the ability to hide the status bar. Camino has also been upgraded to version 1.9.2 of Gecko (Mozilla's rendering engine of choice). That means better compatibility...

Camino 2.0.6 released, fixes security and stablility bugs

Camino, the Mac-only cousin of Firefox, has just been updated to 2.0.6, bringing with it outdated Flash plug-in version checking. Given that many security vulnerabilities revolve around Flash player exploits these days, having the browser check for Flash updates and taking the burden off the user is probably a very good thing. The update also brings with it the latest 1.9.0 version of Mozilla...

Lightweight Mac browser Camino 2 introduces a release candidate

Mozilla's Camino, the lightweight Mac alternative to Firefox, is getting very close to a 2.0 release. The first release candidate is out now -- you can download it by checking for updates in an earlier version of the browser -- and it's got updates to appearance, security features and more. You'll notice a new, more Leopard-like look for the tabs and toolbars, making Camino blend in better with...

Camino 2 beta 1 is available now

Yesterday, the Camino team released the firs beta version of its Gecko-based web browser, Camino 2. Camino is a real treat for Mac users, because it combines Firefox's rendering engine with the native polish of Safari. The first alpha of Camino 2 was released in October, and the beta fixes a number of bugs, adds new features and offers better stability. The big change with Camino 2 is that it is...

Experimental Minefield browser from Mozilla is crazy fast

I'm in love. With a browser. Nope, it's not Firefox, and not Safari, though I've had flings with both in the past. Not Camino, not even Chrome. My new thing is with Minefield, from Mozilla. Okay, so Minefield is essentially an early build of the next version of Firefox. But the latest version has a drastically improved Javascript engine under the hood. Is it fast? Let me tell you - it's...

Camino 2.0 preview is out, with plenty of new features

Camino is the dark horse in the Mac browser competition. It's the faster, lighter little brother to Firefox, and there's a solid base of users who prefer it over Firefox and Safari. Camino uses the same Gecko rendering engine that Firefox is built on, but its focus is on a speedy user experience instead of maximum extensibility. With the preview of version 2.0, just released, Camino has added and...

Chrome for OS X: What we know

Although no release date for the Linux and OS X variants of Chrome has been announced, some details about the Mac version of Chrome are starting to emerge. Yesterday, Amanda Walker, a Google software engineer, laid out some of the basics on the Official Google Mac Blog. While individuals who excel at Mac development are building the Mac version of Chrome (and Linux developers are focusing on the...

Switching to Camino? CookieThief can help

Besides having one of the coolest names for an app that we've seen in a while, CookieThief is pretty handy if you're thinking about switching to the sexy, lightweight Mac browser Camino. Sure, a lot of people prefer Camino's speedy, no-frills browsing experience to flashier, more bloated browsers like Firefox and Safari, but Camino apparently forgot one handy little feature for switchers: moving...

Camino 1.6: Automatic updates, keychain integration, and more

Camino 1.6 is now out in the wild, and it looks to be the release a lot of people were waiting for. With many new features as well as many updated features, Camino 1.6 is an excellent and compelling alternative to Safari and Firefox on the Mac. New to Camino 1.6: Toolbar Search Improvements: The toolbar search in Camino can now be edited and customized, with the ability to delete, rename, and...

GrowlCamino 1.5 beta: Growl notifications for Camino

GrowlCamino is a plugin for the Camino web browser that posts Growl notifications during or after certain browser activities. The Growl program is a universal notifier that delivers on-the-screen information for a number of Mac applications. Some programs, such as Adium and Firefox, are supported right out of the box. Others, like Camino, are not. That's where the GrowlCamino plugin comes in. ...

Mozilla updates Firefox and Camino, Firefox Beta 3 on the horizon

Mozilla has been busy in Patch-land (you know, the place right next to Never-Never land?), and Firefox 3 is almost one step closer to complete. Today Mozilla has released updates to both its Firefox and Camino web browser. Firefox 2.0.0.12 stomps out a reported 11 bugs, including one that posed a security threat to users who had installed any of the add-ons for the open-source browser. Camino...

Camino updates to 1.5 for Mac OS X

For those who have never had the pleasure, Camino is an open source browser based on the same Gecko rendering engine as Firefox, but built to integrate much better with Mac OS X. Right out of the box Camino has a much more Mac look and feel, and under the hood it has integrated better with Mac OS X by doing things like storing web passwords in the Mac OS X Keychain (a centralized, secured and...

Shiira 2.0 makes a good Safari replacement

We last mentioned the Shiira web browser for Macs in August of last year, when the first beta iteration of Shiira 2.0 was released. Since then,Shiira 2.0 has hit full release status, and is succeeding at fulfilling its mission statement: "Shiira is a web browser based on Web Kit and written in Cocoa. The goal of the Shiira Project is to create a browser that is better and more useful than Safari....

Make Firefox a better fit for your Mac

A complaint about FIrefox I hear often from Mac users is that it doesn't really "fit" Mac OS X. Its default theme isn't very "Mac-ish," the default form widgets are fugly, and so on. Some Mac users live with it, others use Camino, the Firefox-based Mac-native browser, and some of them just stick with Safari. There are a few things a Firefox-on-Mac user can do to feel more at home, though, and...

WebnoteHappy - ultimate bookmark manager for OS X?

Folks I've tried 'em all, del.icio.us, Furl, even my .Mac's ability to sync Safari bookmarks online... And what I've wound up with is a mishmash of bookmarks all over creation, some with tags, some without. I don't know if WebnoteHappy is the ultimate answer, as it doesn't necessarily push the list to the web (more on this in a minute), but it does have a lot to offer. For instance, I switch...
