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.

I wouldn't say that it's just that we're more religious; FF has had and still has some UI flaws that can make it really annoying and not even close to on par with its Windows counterpart. I look forward to using FF for Mac, but not until 1.0mac is done. I could list bugs but its probably easier to just look at my vote list: <http://bugzilla.mozilla.o…amp;>

Most prominently are Middle-clicking (yes, we can't middle click on *anything* to open a new tab--bug 159986) and cmd-enter/cmd-shift-enter (220589) for .com and .org completion respectively.

It has gotten better, but for now, Camino is better, so that's what I use.
