Editors' Review

+
The real, nonalpha, nonbeta project has finally arrived--Camino 1 is here! The fact Camino was designed from the ground up to be a native OS X browser definitely shows. A cool alternative to Safari and Firefox, this browser's use of Cocoa for the user interface certainly makes it fit well with the rest of the platform. We were pleased with the visual and behavioral experience. Its interface is clean and uncluttered. In terms of functionality, we didn't experience any crashes. Camino is a very quick browser with speed and performance that are top-notch. With regards to features, Camino definitely falls behind competitor browsers such as Safari, Opera, and Firefox. We would like to see a spelling checker, mouse gestures, and RSS detection, but from what we understand these features are currently being developed and are in the works for the next release, as well as improvements to the download manager. Although it's been a few years since many users have switched away from Camino, we feel the quick and useable feature set, a solid rendering engine, and overall Mac-ness make Camino a great contender for your main browser.

"Operates and looks great with Mac OS X"

June 09, 2006  |  By ftfekete

 |  Version: Camino 1

Pros

Loads nicely and seems to have no problem with bringing up all websites correctly (unlike Mozilla suite). Comparable mail and newsgroup program would be welcomed.

Cons

Nothing so far.

"What other browsers should strive to be"

March 25, 2006  |  By m4ch4x0r

 |  Version: Camino 1

Pros

Runs fast on any of my OS X machines (a powerbook g3, a power mac g4, and an imac g5), looks nice, easy to tweak, and with camitools, there's more options for browser settings than there is in firefox or safari (and yes, even on the pbg3, it scrolls most pages smoothly.) everything i threw at it worked except windows media player, but windows media player blows chunks on mac os anyway (microsoft had to purposly make it that sucky, since wma is just an mpeg-4 codec with another name and everyone with a mac knows that if a p3/600 can play it, a g3/266 does too.)

Cons

there's nothing with this level of os integration available for windows that works this well...poor windows users and their msie 7 that's coming out in the future.

oh, hey cnet, don't some mouse gestures make you feel as if you're doing something innapropriate? i'm not taking any further, but you know what i mean. ;)

"Fast, simple and easy"

February 26, 2006  |  By ziptron

 |  Version: Camino 1

Pros

Unlike Firefox, it displays pages correctly and cleanly. Unlike Safari and Shiira it's fast and plays nicely with more sites, like gmail and some others. For the most part, it's the best of both major Mac browsers.

Cons

It would be nice if it were easier to import bookmarks from other browsers and if it played .wmv movies in the browser, like Safari and Shiira do.

Pros

I think this browser is quite impressive and it is a nice alternative to Safari; quite fast, looks nice, doesn't hog too much memory, goood features

Cons

Seems just a bit too similar to Safari at times; scrolling lacks smoothness
