Camino accepting donations

open source project CaminoCamino is a popular browser specifically developed for Mac. Built on the Mozilla Gecko 1.8.1 rendering engine, Camino gives you a very similar browsing experience to Firefox, but with a nice Cocoa user interface only Mac programs have. Camino renders pages quickly, fully interacts with your Mac’s Keychain, handles tabs and blocks pop up ads. Not as customizable as Firefox yet faster than Safari, I’d probably rank it between the two other Mac browsers.

Camino’s great pride is that it’s an open source application, part of the Mozilla project but with some development freedom. Working on open source programs isn’t easy though, that’s why since November 20 the Camino project has opened up to donations. If you want to support them you can contribute up to $10,000 dollars. Donations are tax-deductible (for US citizens) and Camino will match 2 to 1 for every dollar donated until the end of the year. It’s a good way of supporting open source projects in general and helping out what is already a top notch application on Mac.
