seriously, there are dozens of threads on this subject already.

between firefox and camino, camino has always been faster for me. safari has always been the fastest browser on my MBP, though.

Has anyone had a problem with Camino and the flash player? Myspace's mp3 players on people's pages won't show, but do play...... I was wondering if there was any cure for this? (besides not going on myspace lol)

Camino is incredibly slow with Flash content. They probably know about it but it never hurts to check.

check where? i've installed flash 9 and I don't even think that's compatible with Camino. I've googled and searched these forms for the solution and no luck. Got any ideas?

Camino is the s***. Firefox is s***. :p


The only reason I use Firefox right now is because I can't drag and reorder tabs in the Tab bar like I can with Firefox. I find that very useful.

You have totally confused me with that line right there.

CamiTools probably can, just like it can do practically anything else.

i loves me some Camino.
its just great.
sure it doesn't have EVERYTHING, but i don't need everything either.
simple and fast. much better than bloated and slow.

Really? Have you used Firefox 2.0 Beta 2? It's excellent.

I use Camino, fast, nice interface and works with the sites I frequent. I don't care for Safari or FireFox, neither look nice and Safari quit working for me at home using 10.2.8. You might want to try Shiira, real fast or SeaMonkey (Mozilla replacement) a full suite browser. Opera is also a good choice, works well for me.

Firefox. I haven't tried Camino in a year. Does it have RSS support yet? If not, I'm staying put.
sort of (at least in the newer nightlys) , you have to use an external feed reader though.
