    I've been using it as an alternative to firefox...which hangs too much for my liking.

    But I have 2 problems with it.

    When I am using a mouse the center scroll wheel click will not close a tab (provided i'm clicking on the tab) nor will it open up my homepage in a new tab (when i center click on the home page button).

    Any ideas if this is possible to do?

    I use Camino as my second browser, but Safari is still my first love.

    Thanks for the informative tip, mkrishnan.

    I, for one, use Camino regularly at home (I also use Safari, and DON'T like Firefox's UI at all, hence Camino as my alt), so stuff like this is always nice to know.

    I have never tried camino but I have been using a browser called stainless for about the past month (switch from firefox). It is still in beta but it has some great features coming and a very simplistic interface. I use it mainly because of its amazing speed compared to firefox and safari. It is also very very lightweight. It has never used above 100MB of memory. Also, it gets a 100/100 on the Acid3 test which is pretty impressive for a browser that is still in beta. I would suggest trying it and see what you think. The devs at mesadynamics are working toward a 1.0 release which is very exciting.
