Camino (earlier Chimera) is a free, open source, GUI-based Web browser based on Mozilla‘s Geckolayout engine and specifically designed for the Mac OS X operating system. It uses the Aqua user interface and integrates a number of Mac OS X services and features such as the Keychain for password management and Bonjour for scanning available bookmarks across the local network.

- Improved stability.

- Removed Bloglines from the supported web-based feed readers.
- Upgraded the bundled Java Embedding Plugin to version 0.9.7.4.
