CaminIcon

Version: 1.8 || Release Date: 2008-05-22 || License: Freeware Developer: Reinhold Penner | App Owner: stridey

CaminIcon allows you to change the Camino user interface by installing icons and other application resources such as nib files and preference panes. CaminIcon comes bundled with a small set of icon themes. CaminIcon copies graphics user interface files (toolbar icons, etc.) from its own Themes folders into the Resources folder of Camino.app and replaces the originals. The application previews the new icons in a simulated browser window.

Camino reaches its end

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.

If you want to install a theme and use Camino on another user account, you'll need to give the other user read permission to the theme's files (eg: give read access to everyone).
When installing a theme, files are copied from, eg:
~/Library/Application Support/CaminIcon/Themes/Safarish
to the appropriate locations in the Camino.app package

There's a bug I encountered with this version where, if an icon theme is missing a given icon, CaminIcon will apparently delete the original icon. I suffered this when I noticed that when I tried to switch to a theme which didn't specify a replacement icon for the History toolbar item, Camino's original icon for that item was deleted.

Don't use this version on Leopard because it takes hours for the icon theme packs to download. I worked around this problem by downloading the individual packs at pimp my camino and installed them into the appropriate folder. Then the app. worked ok and I was able to install the themes into Camino.
