About Camino 2
This release displays web pages with Gecko 1.9, the same rendering engine used by the popular Firefox 3 web browser, and thus shares many of the security fixes and Gecko improvements that are in that version of Firefox.
The features listed below are just some of the many changes in Camino 2.0.
Features in Camino 2.0
The following are the major changes and improvements made since the Camino 1.6 release. A full list of features and fixes is also available.
Improved tabbed browsing
The Tab Overview feature displays a grid of thumbnails of the tabs in the current window.
Tabs can be rearranged by dragging and dropping.
Command-click now defaults to opening links in new tabs instead of new windows.
New security features
Camino now supports the Google Safe Browsing service to provide warnings about many potentially malicious websites.
Camino now displays error pages for secure web pages using invalid or untrusted certificates.
Full content zoom
Camino now has support for making the entire contents of a web page bigger or smaller.
If Growl is installed, Camino will generate notifications when downloads begin and finish.
On Mac OS X 10.5 and higher, Camino will bounce the downloads folder in the Dock when a download finishes.
Recently closed pages
The History menu now contains a sub-menu listing the last 20 closed web pages.
Improved support for Full Keyboard Access
When Full Keyboard Access is enabled, tabbing now moves correctly through the entire browser window.
Enhanced annoyance blocking
Camino now includes an exceptions list to allow disabling “Block Flash animations” on a per-site basis and an “Allow Flash From This Site” contextual menu item to ease adding sites to the exceptions list.
New AppleScript capabilities
AppleScripts can now obtain the HTML source or text of an entire web page or of a selection.
Added AppleScript support for setting the active tab in each browser window.
Web content support
For information about other issues or problems, please visit our Help page.
- If “Ask me before accepting each cookie” is checked, Camino will display a cookie dialog for each cookie request from a web page.
- Scroll bars will appear active even when the window is not active.
- Incompatible third-party plug-ins:
- Shockwave Player 10 and older will not display Shockwave content in Camino 2; to display Shockwave content, install Shockwave Player 11 or newer.
- Versions of the Flip4Mac (F4M) plug-in older than version 126.96.36.199 contained a bug that caused major rendering issues in Camino. To display Windows Media content without experiencing this bug, upgrade to Flip4Mac version 188.8.131.52 or later.
- Older versions of the Adobe Flash plug-in had a bug that could cause Camino to stop functioning correctly after visiting enough pages with Flash content while browsing. This is fixed in version 10.0 of the Flash plug-in.
