After a decade-long run, Camino is no longer being developed, and we encourage all users to upgrade to a more modern browser. 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.Camino Browser Development Ends [caminobrowser.org]

I just went through the stats for May on 12 different sites and saw one visitor using Camino, so this is not surprising. What IS surprising is that it was still being used by even one person....

Ahem.

I adopted Camino back around 2003 because at the time it was the only browser that had a popup blocker override. (Firefox was still in development.) For most browsers, the blocker itself was cutting-edge; some browsers-- naming no names-- didn't even have that.

Guess eventually I'll have to migrate to Firefox :(

Camino is so rare that my log-wrangling includes a flag to check my IP address when it finds Camino visitors that haven't been auto-deleted.
