Camino is a Cocoa-built, OS X native Web browser created based on the open-source Web browser and toolkit called Mozilla. The Mozilla codebase has been designed for standards compliance, performance and portability, according to its developers.
Improvements to Camino since the 0.6 release include a new history sidebar, new download manager and a new text encoding menu. The new download manager supports auto-download and auto-dispatch. A Send Link menu item has been added, along with other new toolbar buttons, and dragging of images and links to the desktop and to other applications now works. Shockwave Directory content is now supported, and Camino 0.7 also supports Apple’s zero-configuration networking technology, Rendezvous, to show local FTP and Web servers. (Some features have been available since a December 20-dated release).
Camino 0.7 will be the last milestone build based on the Mozilla 1.0 source branch, according to the developers. Future releases will use the Mozilla source trunk, which is currently at version 1.3b.
