Nice that its been released but its really not as full featured as Firefox... I do think its a bit faster initially on the first few tabs but once you get into the 20+ tab situations I love then it fails to keep up.

Also its not nearly as expandable as Firefox... Still its a good thing to have an OS X native browser from mozilla to springboard future interest they should just integrate more of the Firefox goodness.

For me, comparing Camino to Firefox for Mac and Firefox for Windows, Camino "just works" for me compared to Firefox for Mac, it's fast, doesn't stress me out, is simple, etc (while Firefox for mac is the exact opposite for me), but compared to Firefox for Windows, it's not that great.

I gave up on Firefox about half a year ago, but then again I swore never to use Camino ever again as soon as Firefox started to 'get better' for Mac.. heh

wait... new? Camino's been around longer than Firefox (allow me to qualify that... Chimera was around before Phoenix was).

Love Camino. Love it. If it had a webdev toolbar equiv. or something like the dom inspector recently added to webkit, I'd never open firefox on my mac.

I prefer Camino over Firefox. Guess which one's not installed on my Tiger systems. :)

I've never been comfortable with Firefox's XUL interface on a Mac and lack of Keychain, Services, and other integrated OS X support hasn't inspired me to bother trying anymore.
