My main browser because of the plugins & extensions available but many websites' video simply fails to load.

I love this browser yes it doesn't inherit the great mac theme but I used a grapple skin and their chrome file and gif file plus uno to get it match the osx theme perfectly. I do not know what I would do with out this browser, I mean safari is good and all but firefox is so much better in my opinion. The only thing that I find that I like better in safari is that it will automatically dock a dmg file when you download, but other than that this is a great browser

Such a great browser.. if only it were written in Cocoa.

cant stand firefox, i recommend opera 9. extremely useful and amazingly fast, not like firefox.

that being said, safari is still useful in rss feeds and being able to view youtube videos on my iMac. they show up fine on my PowerBook, but refuse to load at all on the iMac

I would switch to this, but I just don't like the Windows way of rendering buttons. I like Camino since the developers are always listening to us and are trying very hard to put new features in. The 2nd most requested feature is to have support for Firefox Plugins, and since the 1st one is spell check, which is almost in the nightly (it shows the word is wrong, but you can't open a window to check it)

I repeatedly try to switch to Camino, but I always find my way back to Firefox. I have yet to find a way to make Camino block ads and scripts as well as Noscript and Adblock do.

So I use Firefox and Safari cooperatively.

I am a long time mac user and in my opinion this is the only browser to use on the mac, just the range and depth of extensions makes this a must have.

I like the original FF so much better than Camino. The extensions are what make this app - and now with built-in spell checking in the 2.0 beta, there's no reason for me to fire up Safari again!

I love Firefox for my PC, but for my Mac I use Camino and love every second of it. I had forgotten how many ads there are on the internet until I used Safari the other day.
Camino beats them both about the head and neck.

Quite honestly, I have some issues with this app... it's not nearly as fast as Safari, and tends to be a memory hog (I opened up Activity Monitor and it was hogging 2GB of virtual memory - no joke). But, what can I say... I've gotten so used to all the features and extensions that I simply cannot do without them at this point. If they ever manage to integrate more features and extensions into Camino, I'll probably switch (since its based on the same Mozilla-Gecko engine)... but until then, this is my default browser.
