Correction: Sorry Camino

Written by: MacCast

Categories: Podcast

On my March 2nd show I made a BIG mistake and gave out incorrect info on Camino, the Cocoa native Mac browser based on the Mozilla GEKO engine. I incorrectly said it was no longer in development and that FireFox had replaced it. We’ll nothing could have been further from the truth. Since then MacCast listeners have been sending me all kinds of info on Camino so I am going to use this area to give you updated links and info.
