This browser will always hold a warm place in my heart. I was involved with it via the forums for many years, still the best browser I ever used.

For those like me who would like to get the most recent, and final, nightly build it and other nightlies are available here:

http://ftp.mozilla.org//pub/mozilla.org/camino/nightly/

Makes me sick, with all the garbage on the MAS and quality Cocoa software like Camino gets left by the wayside.

It's of course possible for developers to get the source and continue.

Sometime I like just sitting on my bed with my laptop~ using any other browser will start burning my legs, but this does just fine for things I need it to do. I don't use it as much as other things, but it's a nice alternative when I get tired of firefox burning up :)

The flash is disabled by default, unless you want to use it. There's some other weaknesses as far as website compatibility sometimes, but that's okay.

I've been using Camino again over Chrome and definitely Safari and Firefox. It's still the fastest, most direct, most stable, and complete. Chrome may be better tied to Google applications, and it has a few nifty features like auto-translation -- but I hardly use Gmail anymore and I can always hit a toolbar icon to get Google Translate. So for the speed I've gotten back, and the excellent linkage to various extensions and plug-ins (those still available), I've given up very little.

Here's hoping someone revisits Camino and brings out the next version, or a new variant, whatever it may be. I love Camino.

Coming up on 1 year without an update. I think McCoy said it best:

No no no! They're still doing nightly development builds. I just got an update about a week ago in fact. It's still not going to be very.. good though. I've noticed that since it's advertising as FireFox 4 I'm constantly switching browsers to use websites that deny access to these old FF's. It's pretty sad considering the speed and low mem use of Camino.

I stand corrected. Another nightly build was released today!

I love the developer's loyalty but as stated by moz.org Camino team, w/o funding, it's just going to slowly fade away in importance. A shame. Used to be my main browser, but today, many sites just won't render properly or allow you to use it interactively.

moz.org is not the Camino team's site.

I don't know why anyone would use this browser. It is *reaaaaly* slow. On my mac peacekeeper benchmark gives the following results:

Chrome 24: 3808
Safari 6: 3154
Camino 2.1.2: 778
ipad 4th generation: 951

An ipad's browser is faster than camino on a macbook pro and Chrome is about 5 times faster and safari 4.

Clearly this software is somewhat abandoned and does not receive the same development effort as other browsers.

Camino used to be my browser of choice, but in the 2.1.x version, the developers changed the autocomplete algorithm such that you only get 10 results, and the results are not stem matches to what you type in the URL window. Also, I've been noticing more and more pages which do not render correctly. As a result, I'm now looking at going back to Safari or Firefox. It's a shame, because it really is a nice, fast, lean browser, as the description suggests.

I'm still using Camino, but indeed there are more and more sites that give me problems and that I have to load in Safari or Firefox.
Years ago, firefox was so slow launching, so heavy, but now it has become real fast there's no big reason not to use it instead of Camino (Actually I've set MacUpdate as my startup page in Camino, that I use mainly for it! ;-)
For PPC users, there's also TenFourFox that is really efficient (actually a PPC port of Firefox — at this time 10.0.6 ESR version)

Tried it again, after a year and it still doesn't render pages well on some sites, especially with Flash.
Used it as my favorite browser for years, when all Mac browsers did't fare too well in rendering more than a few sites.
Some irritants have been fixed. Still fast and uses little memory and cpu.
Work on the Flash issue or HTML5 and it should be great. Handles cookies Far better than Safari.
Terrible for popups and popunders, still.
"Pimped my Camino" very lightly the last time I brought it out of hibernation and it seemed to make it worse in most respects.
Freezes more than other browsers.
