Camino is increasingly lagging behind the fast pace of changes on the web, and more importantly it is not receiving security updates, making it increasingly unsafe to use."

The last version of Camino I ever used was for MacOS X 10.3.9 (Panther). I really liked it. I still have my Panther-based Mac. Can't upgrade to anything newer, because of one program (iPiano) I have all my music tied to.

I was once told that it was impossible to upgrade Camino (or any other browser) for Panther, because the OS just doesn't support newer technology. Is it really that hard/impossible to update the code aspects of Panther, to make Camino (or other similar browsers of that time) useable for today's Internet. In late 2008, I was still able to browse the Internet with Camino. Now, nothing works. I get the "spinning beachball of death", just going to Google, I kid you not!

I dread using my Mac G4 Quicksilver for anything internet related... maybe it's still usable for Mail, though.

Forced obsolescence... it comes to everyone... no matter what OS you use. Upgrade (hardware/software) or be left behind. Sad, but true.
