Chimera Becomes Camino -- For legal reasons, the Mac OS X open source Web browser known as Chimera has been renamed Camino, and the team has released version 0.7. New features in Camino 0.7 include a Download Manager, compatibility with URL Manager Pro thanks to support for the Menu Sharing Protocol, a global history of visited sites in the sidebar, a Send Link menu item for mailing links, support for dragging of images and links to other applications and to the Desktop, the capability to show local FTP and Web servers via Rendezvous, and many more improvements that you can read about in the full release notes. Although I like Camino's tabbed browsing and sprightly performance, after living with Camino as my default browser for a week, I find myself longing for Safari's raw speed and Google search field, and for Internet Explorer's subscriptions and industry-leading URL auto-completion. Still, it's great to see the Camino team continuing to add features and improve the browser - competition helps the entire field continue to evolve and improve. Camino 0.7 is a 7.6 MB download. [ACE]
