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

    October 28, 2012  |   By MacGuffin


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


    Buggy as hell and 'way behind the times.


    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.

    Update: Camino has been laid to rest as of 5/2013 after having been on a prolonged downslide. A real shame because in its day, it was hands-down the best Mac browser available (and was, in fact, Mac-only). To add insult to injury, one of my e-mail accounts was hacked, undoubtedly due to security problems. No major harm done but a very sad testament to a once-fine endeavor. I still use it for browsing, just not for anything requiring passwords and other sensitive information. RIP :`(
