  Camino and Safari Compared

I won't use Safari as long as they insist on the brushed metal look. It just looks ugly and unsuited in this kind of application. Sure you can turn it off but Apple really needs to reconsider. Camino suits me very well, don't use tabs too much but I like to have the possibility.

    I didn't like the brushed metal either, and I found a perfect solution to make it aqua, and it looks amazing! First, install the developer tools if you haven't already. Then, find the Safari application on your computer (not on the dock, in a Finder window) and control-click it. Move down to "Show Package Contents". A window will open, then open up Contents>Resources>English.lproj and open the file Browser.nib. Open up the info window in Interface Builder (shift+command+i) and with the window selected, deselect the "textured" box. You may need to edit a few other nib files too. This should work in other Cocoa apps too.

      Well, I have to disagree, Just tried out your recommendation and found the aqua interface quite ugly. Particularly so if you have the tabbed browser option turned on in beta v73.
