Great article on Camino vs. Safari, with the exception of the omission of the Keychain feature advantage that Safari lacks.
I'd like to dispel the myth that Safari is faster than Camino. Apple's "benchmarks" have nothing to do with my reality. I just compared sites again, as I have in the past:


•Amazon is faster on Camino
•CNN faster on Camino
•Macsurfer faster on Camino
•NWS weather site faster on Camino


I refreshed and timed it for each site, Camino is 25 to 50% faster in most cases. I have yet to see a situation where Safari is faster. I am curious to know what sites Safari loads faster.
That being said, Camino crashes WAY too often lately. (0.7 toolbar-bookmarks build)


Thanks,
Joe

    Safari beats the pants off of Camino on both of my machines, neither of which are high-end. It is consistantly faster on both my 700MHZ flat-panel iMac and even on my 500MHZ bondi blue.

    In what universe is safari faster? Who believes that? Maybe it is on some 1.42 gig dual proc machine, but on every one of my machines (all single proc, some G3, some G4), Camino knocks the pants off of Safari. Safari feels like IE almost when compared with Camino.

    I agree! They are both fast browsers, but Safari has never been faster for me.

    And I am using a dual proc 867 G4.

    Do you use a double processor? On 2 procs safari flies. Much faster than campino.
