    Web Browsers: The Best of 08 - Mozilla Camino

    (Page 4 of 4 )

    Mozilla Camino makes its appearance on this year's top browsers list as the top contender in the world of Mac. Mac users are faced with as many choices for their web browser as Windows users: Safari, Camino, Firefox, and even Opera. Camino generally edges out Safari by a slim margin in reviews; Firefox lags behind while still being considered a viable option. Opera for Mac is poorly supported and is not generally viewed as an ideal web browser for any user.

    One of Camino's most notable features which grants its advantage over Safari is its integrated RSS reader. All other browsers simply display RSS feeds as lists of links with names. Camino goes one step further and displays other information with the name, such as when the feed was published. It does this while maintaining the clean look and feel that has long been associated with all aspects of the Mac operating systems.

    Camino also edges out Safari by minimizing the size of its files, speeding up the time of its installation, and improving its performance speed. In comparison, Safari is just a little too resource-hungry to compete readily. However, it is generally considered that the advantages of Camino are not great enough to warrant switching over to it if a user is already accustomed to Safari. As such, Camino may be the best choice for users who only recently switched over to a Mac operating system. However, if those users have become familiar with Firefox on their Windows platform, then they might consider using Firefox on Mac, simply for the ease of transition.

    Interestingly, Camino is not compatible with the myriad array of plug-ins and add-ons which are available for Firefox. This is because, although the same creators make Camino and Firefox, it is based on a different toolkit entirely. The result is that users cannot user Firefox plug-ins, but can use another impressively large selection of applications which have been developed specifically for the Mac.

    Camino also performs remarkably well on security tests. It provides numerous options for customizing security preferences regarding cookies, JavaScript, and pop-ups. As security exploits are not generally developed for the Mac operating system, users do not need to be overly concerned about their computer's safety regardless of which browser they are using.
