The Camino Project today announced the Camino 1.0 browser, a free Web browser for Mac OS X, built on the open source Mozilla Gecko rendering engine. “Considered one of the fastest Web browsers on Mac OS X, Camino also integrates tightly with the platform, adopting the refined style, user-focused interface, and cutting-edge technologies that are hallmarks of the Macintosh experience. The project’s development philosophy embraces these ideals, so Camino includes built-in technology to block pop-ups and ads, allowing users to view the Web as it was meant to be seen — annoyance-free.” [Thanks to MacMinute reader Jim Flach for this news tip.]
