Mozilla power, Mac style

Camino is an open source web browser developed with a focus on providing the best possible experience for Mac OS X users.

The Camino Project has worked to create a browser that is as functional and elegant as the computers it runs on. The Camino web browser is powerful, secure, and ready to meet the needs of all users while remaining simple and elegant in its design.

Camino combines the awesome visual and behavioral experience that has been central to the Macintosh philosophy with the powerful web-browsing capabilities of the Gecko rendering engine.

> Biggest wishes right now are for pull-down history in the search

The problem is that the pull-down menu is already used to select different search engines. Not really sure what a good solution there is.

> the ability to set file downloading to ALWAYS ask where to save the file.

I think that would upset a lot of people. It seems to me that the whole point of the download folder is so that you don't have to specify every time. I suggest control-clicking and choosing "Download Link Target..." as a workaround.

For what it's worth, I always found the developers to be very friendly and open, right up until the day that I became one of them.

It's a compromise. Overcomes some of the shortcomings of Safari even though it doesn't have its speed or as beautiful rendering. Much more stable and less of a pig than Firefox which is simply horrible on the Mac (I used it for over year and had to give it up due to too many bugs and uncountable/serious memory leaks).

Biggest wishes right now are for pull-down history in the search and the ability to set file downloading to ALWAYS ask where to save the file.

Dislikes: Some of the developers are arrogant and unfriendly.

Seems like a good replacement for Safari, but it's still missing RSS capabilities. Until then...

Best browser for my money, but there are still some sites that I need to use Safari or Firefox for.

Beautiful & Fast. The Internet is a whole different place without advertisements flashing at you all the time. I'll never go back to Safari.

Best of both worlds... rendering/compatibility as in Firefox.. (almost) as fast as Safari and other Mac 'native' apps

Developers and community (slowly but doing great) porting most useful firefox 'extensions' over. Inquisitor plugin also available.

Less rigid than safari. But cleaner than firefox. Somehow I never felt that firefox was a "true" mac application. Camino seems to be just right. .
