Camino 0.8 Released

Wednesday June 23rd, 2004

Mike Pinkerton writes: "Camino version 0.8 was released tonight. In addition to performance, stability, and rendering improvements inherited from Mozilla 1.7, Camino 0.8 adds a Google Search bar in the toolbar; a more-compact download manager; an entirely rewritten bookmark system, capable of importing Safari, IE, and Mozilla bookmarks, with Rendezvous and Address Book integration and multi-level undo support; session history on back/forward buttons; greatly improved cookie management; and many more changes.

"Since the last release of Camino, the following upgrades have been made to the underlying Gecko engine, and are now available in Camino: incremental, type-ahead find in the content area, automatic size-to-fit for image images larger than the viewable content area and numerous performance and web page rendering enhancements, XSLT support, as well as a large number of bug-fixes."

Grab the release from the FTP site and check out the release notes for more information on what's new.

Your tight post-collegiate budget might actually be helping you. Possibly you would be better off with a cheap Intel laptop fitted with Fedora or Mandrake linux. I put Fedora 2 on my Toshiba laptop and it is in many ways better and more powerful than a macintosh with a much lower price. Just because it is all glitzy and sexy looking doesn't necesarily make it more useful. Appearances can be deceiving...
