Camino

Version 2.1.2

Lean and fast Web browser with Gecko rendering engine.

Camino overview

On 30 May 2013, the developers announced that Camino is no longer being developed.

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

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

This was probably the only browser that handled Flash extremely well back in the day when Safari and Firefox had horrendous issues with Flash. It's so sad to see this browser being a casualty in the browser wars.

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.

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.

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.

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)

Camino seems to get totally bogged down and not do anything if I try to use Google Maps "Street View".

AWSOME very fast but the UI come on it is 2011 I remember we used this UI in what 2003? Get a grip Camino project. Not it is not just about looks but when I look at this it is so naff and ruins my experience. Get Firefox add-ons working in it and you got the best browser in the world there. This seems a hobby project to make a fast ass browser not to make it feature or UI rich. So I don't really use it as it seems only for the developers to play in and they are blind to easy it would be to be the developers of the best browser and not some hobby thing. Sad but AWSOME talk about a dichotomy.

Been using Camino since v,0.8. I like browser that's fast and simple and Camino does that for me. And for you PPC users, Camino is still the best for PPC machines.

Thanks again to Uncle Asad and the dedicated Camino developer team. I keep trying to use those "advanced" browsers like Firefox, Chrome and Safari; but I keep coming back again and again to Camino as my default browser. It's fast, light, simple and beautiful.

Camino is my favorite browser, but the version 2.1 (1.9.2.24 20111113195207) don't work properly with Mac OS X 10.7.2. When some file is downloaded from the web with Camino the Finder stops working normally and has to be relaunched.

I really can't use this because of one simple reason... The "Annoyance Blocker" does not work nearly as well, nor is as flexible, as AdBlock Plus in Firefox. I gave it a go as my default browser for 2 weeks and the ads everywhere, finally got to me. I'll say one thing though, when watching Flash (YouTube) video, or Silverlight Video (Netflix), Camino seems to use a lot less resources than Safari, Chrome, or Firefox. So Camino has become my "Netflix & Youtube Browser", just because of that :)

I'm afraid that Camino has been overtaken by Firefox and Safari, not to mention the Chrome offshoots, i.e., Chromium, SRware Iron, even Roccat. Camino, for me, is dog slow and tired when compared to the others; featurewise it just doesn't measure up. Camino will likely die a slow death. However, if it floats your boat, enjoy it while it's still around. Anyway,one can do better.

recent new lease of life put camino back on my mac and even in the dock - for some reason it always worked on some sites which others really struggled with. but something's really wrong with 2.1 (even the core2duo specific builds) as it can't get itself going even on google. despite this am happy camino's back and have i faith that the dev will fix all. (ignore my rating as firefox was playing up)
