The Camino Project has officially released
1.0, a Web browser for Mac OS X based on Mozilla’s Gecko rendering engine. It’s available for free download from the Web site.
Camino 1.0 is billed as “one of the fastest Web browsers on Mac OS X.” The browser includes pop-up ad blocking and integration with Mac OS X technologies. It uses the Address Book to fill out Web forms and saves passwords using the Keychain, for example. Its bookmarks are Spotlight-searchable for Tiger users and it also supports Bonjour networking technology.
The Gecko rendering engine supports standards including HTML, XHTML, CSS, SVG, MathML and other specs defined by the World Wide Web Consortium. It’s the same rendering engine used by Mozilla’s popular Firefox Web browser.
