Want more options when it comes to your browser? Camino could offer you plenty. Created and formatted based on Mozilla’s Gecko layout engine, the browser provides you with all the features regular Mac users need and so much more.
This open source browser was initially created to serve as an alternative to the Firefox browser for Mac. It offers all the basic features users have come to expect from any browser, from pop-up blocking to movable tab windows; but it also adds a couple of new and personal features.
Camino was created by the Camino Project with Mike Pinkerton handling the technical lead. The browser offers a simple and easy-to-use interface. It’s quite fast and doesn’t bog down your Mac. In its latest version, Camino 2, you get the full capacity of the Gecko engine which has reshaped the browser and its performance since its first release. It has also gained an improvement in its security options since then.
With Camino 2, Tab Overview has been integrated to provide users with easy access to all the sites they are browsing. It also offers scrollable tabs and has the capacity to easily access pages that users have accidentally closed. Other features that make the browser quite intriguing include content zoooming as well as the capacity to work with Growl.
There are plenty of things that you can find helpful in using Camino. If you’re looking for another browser or simply not happy with your current one, then give this try. It’s offered for free and quite useful.
