Goodbye Camino

03 Jun 2013

It’s bittersweet to see the official announcement, but the Camino Browser project is finally coming to an end.

I first discovered Camino shortly after the first public beta of Safari. Until then, I hadn’t been aware of alternatives, but Camino soon became my default browser. I loved it for its nimble feel and Mozilla features, but with a native Mac UI. It was through my messing around with Camino icons that I got asked to work on the Firefox logo, and the rest is history.

Over the years I helped out on the graphics when Jasper Hauser left to work on MadebySofa (and now Facebook), created the first Camino website, as well as set up PimpmyCamino.com. Sadly, when my host upgraded their server (two years ago now), PimpmyCamino (and The Rissington Podcast) databases were corrupted, and despite constant requests to restore from backups, Segpub never did, and the site died. Lesson learnt about about keeping regular backups of your own :(

Camino was always a volunteer project, and the browser landscape has changed dramatically in the last 10 years. While the end was inevitable, I’m grateful to everyone who spent time on the project. I enjoyed working on it and using it, and learned a lot in the process.
