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.

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.

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 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.

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.

My preferred browser for many years, especially because of its capacity to work when very restrictive security parameters are chosen. However, Camino's cookie blocking option does not work against cookies whose name starts with a dot, in particular the much problematic .atmdt.com cookies (that keep passing, even when connections to atmdt.com are blocked using sudo nano /etc/hosts)

To get your 1Password working in Camino (if « unsupported version »)
- Quit 1Password and Camino
- Show Package Contents of 1Password
- Open Contents > Resources
- Open SupportedBrowsers.plist in a text editor or a plist editor
- In the org.mozilla.camino section, Change MaxBundleVersion to 2010.05.20 (for 2.0.7)
- save

I found this trick at Agile's forum, you have to change the date for more recent versions (something like 2012.12.31)

I recently noticed that this very site (MacUpdate) doesn't behave the same in Camino than in Safari or Firefox!!!
- the top apps of the day (listed in red) are less (today 1 in Camino, 4 in the others — the 3 missing ones don't even show at all)
- when you search for an app via the search field, it gives less or no results (try searching for "Camino", it drops you directly on "Camino Frost" while the others give you 48 results! Search for Cocktail or Awaken: no results! — 13 and 6 for the others respectively)
Another brick in the wall... :-(

I've trashed my app support/Camino folder and it now behaves correctly on Macupdate... probably some corrupt file there inherited from a previous version! I now have to retry the few sites that gave me problems until then, such as Youtube, myspace, facebook...

I would really love Camino 2 as a browser, except for one really annoying bug:

On 4 separate PPC computers running 10.4.11, Camino (and all other Mozilla products I have tested) show multiple page scrolling when clicking once in the scroll bar below the scroll thumb (or above, once it multiple-scrolls down). My primary computer is a G3 Pismo, but I have also seen this on a G4 Cube, G4 iBook, and G4 PowerBook. This bug is annoying enough to keep me away from all of the Mozilla programs, except for Camino, which is good enough to keep me coming back.

Has anyone else seen this behavior, and/or have a suggestion for a fix (other than avoiding trying to use the GUI in a way in which it is _supposed_ to work, and works in all other applications)?

...and yes, I did submit a bug report to the Camino development team when Camino 2 was still in beta, but the outcome was that since this was not a Camino-specific bug, it wasn't their problem.

having tried this latest version of camino and have been really impressed with it, especially blocking flash ads and the like and being a lot faster than safari

......but

once i am in my yahoo account the IM in new yahoo mail does not work, it either hangs showing no contacts or sometimes shows who is online but cannot open chat window with them ( i think this is fault (4277742 ) on the bugzilla page for camino a few other people have reported this, i tried sea monkey and the IM in new yahoo mail works fine.

It's a real shame but for me this is a deal breaker so i may have to stick with safari for now as much as i liked sea monkey it had feel of pc about it ( but that is just my feeling about it ) may give it another try,

so looks like i have to wait for this to be worked out ( like i said a real shame )

If you're experiencing crashes with Camino, please report them using the Camino Crash Reporter, and if you have persistent crashes, please post in the forum or file a bug.

We've established the causes of some common crashes already; see http://caminobrowser.org/blog/2009/#camino2update for more information, fixes, and work-arounds (as well as links to both the forum and information about reporting bugs).

1Password 2.11.1 is enable in the Browser preferences for Camino 2.0 in 1Password and still no icon in toolbar or when trying to customize toolbar. Funny thing happen, activated Camino under another user name but disabled 1Password first, Camino still warned me about 1Password may not be compatible with Camino 2.0.
