Camino Sends OS-X A Valentine

  1. The best option for firefox or for that matter any browser that wants to compete with IE, make the DOM model of these browsers IE compatiable otherwise only edgecases will be the only adopters. Testing web applications for multiple platforms and browsers is a non starter for most ISVs.

  2. “…make the DOM model of these browsers IE compatiable [sic] otherwise only edgecases will be the only adopters.”

    You are joking, right? Camino already supports web standards. IE does, mostly, but not fully. The problem lies with IE – not Camino or Firefox.

    That said, congrats to the Camino team on the birth of 1.0!

  3. Dumbing down proper browsers like Camino, Firefox and Safari is an absolutely asinine idea. Slow adoption of non-IE browsers for Windows users has nothing to do with how they differently (correctly)render pages, but rather with the users’ own ingnorance of the superior alternatives.

    Adherence to Web Standards is becoming a huge priority for many developers. I’d challenge anybody to call themselves Web 2.0 without at least attempting to stick to standards. The best developers and designers have abandoned the idea of developing exclusively for Microsoft’s abomination of a browser.

  4. The Mac Firefox port doesn’t need much attention (It’s actually pretty good), although I do seem to occasionally lock it up with 100% CPU usage (particularly on sites with Flash, Java’n’stuff).
    Camino’s faster and feels more Mac-y, but I can’t live without my extensions (Net Usage Item to monitor my download allowance, Bugmenot for those stupid register-so-we-can-spam-you websites, GreaseMonkey etc)

  5. Andrew Miller – ditto on the CamiTools. I couldn’t live without my search option “plug-ins”. And CaminIcon is very useful too. Having used Safari, Firefox, and Camino actively w/in the last year, in the end, I feel about Camino the way I feel about my Mac, there are certain advantages to other options but overall this is by far the best choice (over Firefox: LOVE the Keychain integration!!! and super-fast). There are more and more options with Camino every month, if not every day.

  6. Camino is so sweet – its fast, has style, and uses the Keychain. Lack of Keychain support in Firefox has always been a real pain for me, but I liked the Firefox extensions so much I just had to use it.

    I personally use Camino as my first choice while browsing; use Firefox for all my web development (the development environment the best IMHO); use Flock if I want to write a quick blog entry; and lastly use Safari for testing.

    All this tabbing about used to be real pain because these browsers didn’t share passwords; this is why I had to write 1Passwd.

    1Passwd is a Password Manager & AutoFill program that integrates with the OS X Keychain. 1Passwd integrates directly with Camino, Safari, Firefox, and Flock so that no matter which one you are using you never need to leave your browser to find your passwords.

  7. Slow to mac, I immediately knew I didn’t want safari. Fortunately I found Camino and have been happy ever since!

    I use Tyepad and the interface is a bit shy compared to firefox I can live with it! Long live Camino!
