Camino was a web browser for Mac OS X based on Mozilla. It replaced Mozilla's XUL-based user interface with a native Cocoa implementation. Camino doesn't include Mozilla's email or composer components; it concentrates on the providing "just the browser" by embedding Mozilla's Gecko layout engine in a lightweight application.

History[]

Version 0.8.2 was released on December 6, 2004. While it was still in a development state, Camino was stable and fast enough to be the default browser of choice for a growing community of users.

The browser was previously known as Chimera. Its name was changed on March 3, 2003 due to legal issues.

Because of its roots in Greek mythology, "Chimera" has been a popular choice of name for hypermedia systems. One of the first graphical web browsers was called Chimera; researchers at the University of California, Irvine have also developed a complete hypermedia system of the same name.
