Stuart Morgan:

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.

A sad day. Camino was my browser of choice on OS X for many years — basically before Chrome for Mac came out and before Safari got halfway decent.

But the writing has been on the wall for a while. As momentum shifted from Gecko to WebKit, the changes in the browser landscape were fast and furious. There was some talk of Camino staying alive by shifting to WebKit, but with that now being forked

The good news, as noted by Morgan:

Fortunately, Mac users have many more browsers to choose from than they did when Camino started ten years ago. Former Camino developers have helped build the three most popular – Chrome, Firefox, and Safari – so while this is the end of Camino itself, the community that helped build it is still making the web better for Mac users.

RIP Camino.
