I have tried Camino, Firefox, Safari and several others. My advice would be to pick the one you like best and use it. If you don't like Camino, that's not a problem - don't use it.

Personally, when it is all said and done, I have gone with Safari for day to day use. It is a great browser and nicely integrated with the rest of the Mac OS X software.

That was my choice though, not a general recommendation. There are LOTS of browsers out there. Pick the one you like and enjoy!

My Macs: iMac 27" 3.4 GHz, Mac Pro 3.2 GHz, PowerMac G5 Quad 2.5 GHz, G4 Cube with 1.2 GHz Upgrade
My iStuff: 64GB iPhone 5, 64GB iPad4, 30GB iPod Video, 16GB iPod Touch
My OS': Mac OS X Lion, Mac OS X Snow Leopard, Mac OS X Tiger, Mac OS 9.2.2, openSUSE 10.3

I use camino over firefox because it uses much less memory and prevents my fans from turning on.

I've tried Camino, along with the rest of the browsers available for Mac and always find myself coming back to Firefox. I just add a Mac theme to it and it blends in very well.

If I have to use a Mozilla browser, I prefer Camino. I dunno, there's something about the interface that seems Mac-ish, elegant while Firefox's is... I guess the word is boxy.

I know what you mean. When I first installed Firefox, it just looked odd. But with either the iFox or or Grapple themes, Firefox fits in just perfectly. :black:

There's not a lot in it. I use Camino as I installed it first.

I use Safari for 98% of the sites I visit but use Camino for the ones that Safari has issues with. I find Camino more OSX like than Firefox and it's very fast also and seems better with IE specific sites.
