Go Back and Forth Fast in Preview

If you're reading a PDF in Apple's Preview software, and you follow a bookmark or an internal link to move around within the PDF, you can quickly return to where you were by pressing the keyboard shortcut Command-[ (that's Command-Left Bracket). Or, you can choose Go > Back.

The command works iteratively, so you can go back to just the previously viewed page or if you issue the command again, to the page before that, and so on. There's also an equivalent Go > Forward (Command-]).

The End of the Line for Camino

Send Article to a Friend

After more than 11 years, development on the open-source Camino Web browser has ended. Back in the dark ages of Mac OS X, before Safari and Chrome, the Camino Project was established to graft a Mac-native interface onto Mozilla’s Gecko rendering engine. Many of Camino’s developers were later hired by Apple and Google to work on their respective browsers. Web browsing on Mac OS X wouldn’t be what it is today without Camino, and for that, we thank the developers, salute them, and wish them the best in whatever they do next.Generic Globefollow link

Sad to read this. Until a year or so ago Camino was my main browser. I started using it when it was called Chimera. Now I use Chrome and wonder how much data Google is collecting from me.

This is sad news, indeed. Camino was my browser of choice for many years. Firefox was bloated and a memory hog, Chrome a bit too intrusive, and Safari (without the Debug/Developer menu) not very reliable. Firefox still requires restarting from time to time, and the others have improved, but Camino always struck me as a "real" Mac browser.

Sad. I still use it for some sites. It was my main browser for many years.

I've long used Camino as my clean test browser; I imagine it will continue to work in that role for some time, though eventually I'll need to switch to Opera or the like for something that can be completely reset for testing.
