The Mozilla-derived Mac OS X-only Web browser Camino was updated to version 1.5. It’s available for download now and is free to use.
Camino is an open source Web browser that utilizes the Mozilla Foundation’s Gecko core engine. Camino has been designed especially for Mac OS X, however, unlike the popular Firefox Web browser.
New features in Camino 1.5 include support for Mac OS X’s built-in spell checker (Firefox uses its own); “Session saving” that remembers what pages you were visiting when you quit, and automatically loads them next time and better “annoyance blocking” with improved pop-up blocking support and the ability to keep Flash-based animation from loading until you’re ready.
Really Simple Syndication (RSS) and Atom newsfeed support has been added in 1.5 — the software now displays an icon in the location bar to let you know that an newsfeed is available for the site you’re viewing. Tabs have been improved with new tooltips, “single window mode” and “tab jumpback.”
System requirements call for Mac OS X v10.3 or later and 50MB free hard disk space. Camino is a Universal binary.
