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.

You are replying to this message

<rant>"Obviously, you are not a Mac user" just pisses me off. What a completely pompus, elitist, holier than thou answer to a perfectly valid question. Not to mention that you didn't bother to answer the question. Rrrrrrrrr!!!!</rant>

So, I'm a mac user and I have no idea why I should switch from Firefox. I'm not a programmer and have no idea why I should care about the native cocoa interface.

Honestly, I really am interested. I'd be willing to switch, I just don't know what the differences between Firefox and Camino are.
