Browser Review: Camino

Okay, I generally swear by Mozilla Firefox. On Windows, it is hands down the best browser you can use. However, on Linux and Mac it leaves something to be desired. Especially on Mac- first, it integrates poorly with other software applications. Plugins, mail apps, etc. Bonered. Tack on the fact that it doesn't mesh in with the look of OSX, and that you can't tab through fields on a form- well, you can with the text boxes, but drop downs, or anything like that.

So, overall, it makes one a little unhappy.

I was getting a bit miffed, slowly but surely, and lo-and-behold, I noticed that Camino had just released a new version. I figured, "Okay, what the hell," and gave it another go. Now, we're looking at the same engine that's beneath firefox, tabbed browsing, and all of the really key features of Firefox, but available on the Mac, and built for the Mac. It blows Safari away, but brings the integration that Firefox lacks.
