Chimera Renamed to Camino

Monday March 3rd, 2003

The Mozilla-based Chimera browser for Mac OS X has been renamed to Camino™. This change was made for legal reasons involving the existence of an older, unrelated browser for UNIX-based systems called Chimera. Camino 0.7 will be released shortly.


#32 Better if renamed when 0.7 came out?

The title says it all - renaming a product without actually releasing a (new or at least just renamed) version of it at the same time surely leads to user confusion. 0.7 is "due shortly", so it would have been wiser to rename the browser then. -As people have said, what do we call the 0.6 version now, since it's the latest/current release of, er, Chimera/Camino/whatever?
