I’m glad they’ve kept it going, it’s a good browser and keeps Apple on thier toes. 2004-09-23 10:11 pm Webstractor is fantastic. Just tried it. As a browser, it is not the fastest (it’s not really slow either), but it is extremely practical to assemble documentation from various sources, and for a lot of other purposes too. 2004-09-23 10:46 pm Internet explorer 4.0 could do that back in 96 or 97. And it was on by default. And now it’s not on by default cause it was annoying and (mostly) useless. So no, it’s not new at all unlike what the article claims. Funny that it claims it’s new after the start of the article about how the web was back in the 90’s. 2004-09-23 10:51 pm The O’Reilly page loads fine for me with FireFox 1.0PR on OS X. 2004-09-23 11:11 pm Works just fine in Opera 7.53 and Netscape 6.2 under XP Pro. Have you tried rebooting your computer or a logout/login? 2004-09-24 1:10 am Camino is the only web browser I ever use. I’m glad to see it getting some publicity. It’s just a pity they are pity they’re dropping 10.1 support now. btw, that O’Reilly page works fine in Camino. 2004-09-24 1:28 am im seeing more odd behavior out of 1.0pr than out of 0.9.3. please excuse the off topic interruptions. 2004-09-24 1:55 am Wish there was a good network neighborhood utility out there. My Network app has disappeared and ti never really worked that well anyway. 2004-09-24 6:30 am >It’s just a pity they are pity they’re dropping 10.1 support now Apple is responsible for that – They made so many changes and fixed so many bugs in 10.2 that supporting some stuff on 10.1 is impossible. For those interested in Camino, the Camino localization team seeks translators to add new languages to Camino. The project is located at http://Caminol10n.mozdev.org Ludovic 2004-09-24 11:08 am BeOS had embedded apps on the desktop since the 90’s. BeOS was so much more advanced than anyone realized..or still realize. 2004-09-24 12:47 pm Could you elaborate on what they fixed/changed which makes supporting this old version impossible? I’m interested in the details. thanks -mike 2004-09-24 8:40 pm <blockquote>Could you elaborate on what they fixed/changed which makes supporting this old version impossible?

Take a look at the code we have some comments on 10.1 support. Can’t find them using xlr for instance. They are a few other stuff .
