"...the Saddest Are these 'It Might Have Been'"

October 28, 2012  |  By MacGuffin

 |  Version: Camino 2.1.2

Pros

It's a Mac-only browser and it handles cookies better than any other browser.

Cons

Buggy as hell and 'way behind the times.

Summary

I WANT to keep loving Camino. I've been using it for years, mainly because I love the way it handles all things cookie-related. But the fact of the matter is that it not only gets buggier as time goes by but it's pretty primitive in some ways. You can't view PDF in it and it won't auto-complete anything, both pretty basic browser functions. But the worst is that now, virtually every click or act of scrolling results in a beach ball and a good six seconds of response time. Pitiful.

"But I don't use iCloud!"

October 25, 2012  |  By M. Pitts-Campbell

 |  Version: Camino 2.1.2

Pros

Does not require a new Macintosh.
Works with older versions of OS X.
Far more recently updated than than Firefox or Safari for pre-OS X 10.5.
Works with Web sites that only accept the most recent browser revisions.

Cons

Lacks some of the bells and whistles of the latest mega-browsers.

Summary

Works better than Firefox 3.6.28 or Safari 4.1.3, which are the most recent revisions that will work on a non-PowerPC Mac.

"Incompatible with iCloud!"

September 04, 2012  |  By rorycscott

 |  Version: Camino 2.1.2

Pros

Seems fast and stable.

Cons

Don't understand why it comes so highly recommended when it's incompatible with iCloud.

Summary

Not suitable as a solo browser for those who use iCloud.

"Get with It Already"

September 11, 2011  |  By MacGuffin

 |  Version: Camino 2.0.8

Pros

It's no worse than it was.

Cons

It STILL doesn't have an auto-complete feature.

Summary

I've been using Camino for years and used to love it. FWIW, it still manages cookies better and more flexibly than any of my other browsers (I use Firefox and Safari most often) and I don't find that it's prone to crashing. However, I don't dare delete anything from History because I risk having everything wiped and the lack, after all these years, of an auto-complete feature is nothing short of idiotic (I believe I read once that the developers' rationale was something along the lines of "wanting it to be stable" first). I'll continue to use it, mainly for its handling of cookies and because I think using several browsers is wise, but I haven't actually recommended it in years. This "update" brings nothing of interest to the table.

July 26, 2011  |  By prospere

 |  Version: Camino 2.0.7

Easy to use and does not overwhelm when operating.

"Excellent when it does not lock up."

July 13, 2011  |  By markomdmph

 |  Version: Camino 2.0.7

Pros

Even more convenient than Firefox; a more efficient version of Firefox for those of us who like programs lean and clean.

Cons

Locks up whenever more than 4-5 tabs are open at the same time.

Summary

1. Very convenient and efficient.
2. Locks up too often and I, a very long term Mac user, have been unable to figure out how to correct the problem.

"I love this"

February 26, 2011  |  By volkswagenpantech

 |  Version: Camino 2.0.6

Pros

Fast, Easy, Simple, Light weight, works with Keychain, Pop-up blocker/ad-blocker,spell checker.

Cons

Seems kind of out dated compared to firefox and safari.

Summary

I really liked firefox but my friend who has a pc found a way to get my passwords even though i had the password thing on. I like how fast and simple this is and it doesn't freeze as often as some of the other browsers that I have used. I would recommend this to anyone who has a mac. It would be nice if it had ad-ons for youtube downloaders and ad blockers, It does ok blocking ads but there are some that it misses.

Pros

have not noticed any advantages except that, being new, it is less cluttered than my Firefox.

Cons

(above) and When I press Finderin the dock I get another Camino unwanted pop-up. and in most cases I was trying for another app. Could not use it as a default browser either

Summary

stopped using Camino. Several days ago I sent a Complaint to Camino but received nothing explaining the problems on my Imac.
