Mozilla & Gecko clones Camino 1.0 for PPC and Intel-Mac is now available. Camino is a web browser optimized for Mac OS X with a Cocoa user interface, and powerful Gecko layout engine. It practices the art of simplicity with an uncluttered user interface but with the features you expect from a modern browser like tabbed browsing and pop-up blocking settings. On other browser news, Access has announced new Netfront plans.

Actually, even Mozilla had to acknowledge that there exists a need for a native Cocoa browser than uses Gecko (See their 1.7 roadmap). Mac users have a much higher expectation when it comes to HIG conformance and system integration. Firefox can never fully deliver these due to its cross-platform nature.

BTW, Camino actually started long before Firefox and it's actually one of the primary inspirations for Fx. There was never official support for Camino even in the old days. Camino has always been a community-level project since its inception and it ran fine.

I am a mac user, and I don't give a shit about this. What I want ? A good browser, that's all.

Yes, and so does SeaMonkey.

No, SeaMonkey used to be an official mozilla project (well, the only one).

As for the HIG conformance thing, I am sure as you become more accustomed to the OS X environment, you will become more aware of it.
