Today’s been a pretty good day, not least because there’s a new release of Camino.
I declare it now, in public: I used to be a browser whore, flitting from one to the other every month or so, always drawn to the newest clever widget or the newest smart feature.
But for a while now I’ve been a steadfast Camino user and it will take something pretty spectacular to make me stop using it.
Why do I like it so much? It fits in wonderfully with the rest of the Mac system. It’s stable (I can leave it open for days, with stupid numbers of tabs open, and it never complains), it’s fast, it’s dependable, it doesn’t - as they say of other good apps - suck.
Now the brand new 1.0b1 version, there’s plenty of new features and squished bugs.
Best of all (and yes, I admit, a long time behind other browsers) is a “Are you sure you want to quit with all those tabs open?” dialog. That’ll save me from 10 minutes of swearing on the rare occasions I hit Command+Q instead of Command+W.
Remember when Mike Pinkerton moved to Google and promised us that this was nothing but good news for Camino users? Well, today’s release is proof that he was right, and I think is also an indication of plenty more good things to come.
Browser, browser, browser, browser, MUSHROOM! MUSHROOM!
