The Camino Project LogoAs you may know, Firefox 2.0.0.12 was released today, and it's no surprise that The Camino Project has followed suit with Camino 1.5.5. The Camino browser is a Mozilla-based web browser designed to integrate smoothly with Mac OS X. It sports a more OS X-like look and feel.

Due to the critical nature of the fixes included in 1.8.1.12 of the Gecko rendering engine, it's recommended that all users upgrade as soon as possible. Below you'll find a list of changes as published in Camino 1.5.5's Release Notes.

  • Upgraded to version 1.8.1.12 of the Mozilla Gecko rendering engine, which includes several critical security and stability fixes.
  • When quitting after closing all tabs, Camino will no longer crash.
  • Opening a .url file with “Open downloaded files” enabled will no longer cause Camino to attempt to download the file repeatedly.
  • Camino will no longer crash when using the Trash button in the Downloads window.
  • Pressing Tab in an editable table view now advances to the next control properly on Mac OS X 10.5.
  • Camino now sets the default home page properly on first launch.
  • When saving a web page as a PDF from the Print dialog, Camino suggests the page’s title as the filename.
  • Camino now hides the cursor when using the Page Up and Page Down keys.
  • Upgraded the “Block Flash animations” code to use Flashblock 1.5.5.
  • Improved ad-blocking.
