    Camino
    Can somebody tell me why I shouldn't stay with Camino...the browser that is a little bit Safari and a little Bit Firefox?

    Specs:
    Aluminium Macbook 2.4 Ghz 4GB RAM, SSD 24" Samsung Display, iPhone 4, iPad 2
    For me it's .mac syncing, the overall OS integration, the hassle of manually downloading / installing updates and resizable text fields to name a few.

    But I like to take Camino for a spin every now and then and it's my second favorite browser out there. It just lacks a killer feature that outweighs Safari's integration imo.

    Firefox has the same rendering engine as Camino, but is much more extensible.

    Camino is a slick browser. The only downside I can think of is the lack of themes

    Is there some reason you don't want to? This, IMHO, is a rather silly question. You should use whichever browser your prefer and enjoy to use that works for you.

    If you have an iPhone. Safari syncs bookmarks with the iPhone. I still use Camino but every once in a while I fire up Safari so I can update some bookmarks.

    Silly?
    The question may have been somewhat rhetorical, but it certainly isn't silly. I was hoping to find some feedback as to why it is so little used by many. As a moderator of this forum, I wouldn't expect you to make that type of a statement. I don't think any question should be labeled as silly, or any other degrogative........
