Battle of the Mac OS X Browsers: Camino and Safari

Sunday March 30th, 2003

The O'Reilly Network has an article comparing Camino and Safari. The versions reviewed are Camino 0.7 and a pre-tabs build of Safari. We found out about this report from MacSlash, where you'll find many comments about the comparison.

#4 I prefer Mozilla to Camino or Safari

Also I believe that it would now that Mozilla for OS X is compliled as Mach-O it would be a toss up if Mozilla or Camino would be faster. Switching from the CFM build to Mach-o provided at least a 20 percent increase in speed.

Anyway, with a broadband connection I am happier with Mozilla. About searching in Mozilla: This is not limited to Google. The search feature recognizes all the Apple Sherlock plug-ins and I am able to search dozens of engines without having to leave Mozilla. I can also keep the search results in a seperate browser tab window as I check out the links in another tab. Mozilla's search feature has kept me from switch to another browser, even Camino.

Oh, BTW I love Mozilla Mail (especially the excellent spam filter) and would have to live without Mozilla Mail if I went with Camino. Mozilla willsoon recieve another speed boost as each application within Mozilla is given its own seprate process within the application. Then much of the argument for seperate applicatioins such as Camino or Pheonix will fade away. For me I am ahppier with Mozilla--many of my favorite features are missing in Camino.
