Improve the Firefox user experience

You can improve the user experience by using Camino. It is the Mozilla based (gecko) browser for the Mac.

The latest nightlies are VERY nice, and the new Bookmark/History manager introduced last week is fantastic. And there is also a G4 optimized build .

Improve the Firefox user experience

Forgive me, dumb question.

Does Camino allow all the same extensions available in FireFox? Or is it an extensionless, themeless experience?

It does not share the extensions of Firefox or Mozilla, but you can track down similar extensions and themes. Check out the forums at mozillazine.org for more info.

You will find that Camino fits somewhere between Safari and Firefox for a user experience. It feels much more like a native Mac app than FF, but is less integrated into the OS than Safari. I find it to be the fastest launching and rendering of the three, and therefore my prefered choice. But there are definitely areas of weakness compared to other browsers.
