Oh, I understand that it isn't the main focus and is maintained by a team of driven volunteers. Couple those circumstances with the fact that it is a niche browser on a niche platform means that it's unlikely that it will be promoted as heavily or as thouroughly as Firefox.

It just felt to me like (and I know I'm probably projecting this feeling onto the interview) like Chris was deliberately _not_ naming Camino explicitly. And may I say (just in case I get flamed) that I don't think Chris was dissing Camino or anything else like that, but what he was doing did come across as deliberate.

Anyone else get this feeling?
