The browser offers the ability for users to easily reskin the browsers with a new visual theme. The new version can also run scripts asynchronously, which should speed load times of pages that have multiple scripts.

If they take so long for the next big update, Camino won't be anyone's choice. I gave it up a long time ago.

The Firefox 3.6 nightly builds have been so good from alpha through the current 3.6.6pre beta. If they can get the plug-in compliance up past 70 %, it would be good. Who wants to go without a specific plug-in that hasn't worked past version 3.0.x?

Apparently not. I just tried the latest Camino, and it has some of the same bugs. For instance, it too prevents Macs from sleeping.
