    :( after reading the last post on the camino.blog it seems that camino may soon become no more. i really hope they make the switch to webkit, i can't imagine not using camino anymore.

    I hope they are able to keep it around, I don't use it much, but it's always been a fast browser for me, and the one I use on older macs.

    Aw that's too bad, but.. meh. I used to be a hardcore Camino user for the longest time, going back to when they called it Chimera. That they stuck to 3.6 instead of going with the 4.0 RC's a while back sucked (but I know why).

    Moz has been kinda rough to developers lately. It sucks, because FF4 is a really, really good browser so far. I've been using it on almost everything except my Windows machines..

    Ah well, part of me thinks that Camino's time has passed. FF4 runs really smoothly on my PPC Macs (with the custom builds, anyway), and I haven't really had a calling to have native Aqua since they fixed it. XD

    I never really used camino. I think the osx market for web browsers is a bit over crowded as it is - Opera, camino, firefox, safari, omniweb, flock, icab

    Camino's always been a great browser, and I'll be sad to see it go.

    Just Started Using Camino

    Been using it for about a week now, and I like it. Not perfect, but I like it better than FireFox 4 or Chrome. I don't get scrolling distortion with it on my 2009 MacBook Pro. So far, so good.

    You mean TenFourFox? I am running this on my PB G4 1.67 Hi-Res(don't laugh.. i know, but I also own a 3.33 6-core mac pro, so I don't need a macbook pro).

    ff is still a ram and cpu hog, native apps integrate so much better and use less system resources, i've gone back to safari after using chrome, not too big a fan of it, for that matter stainless has stop development too, am i wrong?
