Camino Browser Reaches End Of Life

From CaminoBrowser.org:

Camino reaches its end

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.

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.

Thank you to all our loyal users, and to everyone who contributed in countless ways over the years to make Camino what it was.

As a matter of fact I am using Camino to write this very post just like many posts in the past. I do notice that Camino does not support a lot of CSS tags. Ironically, Camino still renders web pages better than Internet Explorer.

Perian Project comes to a close.

From perian.org:

We began the Perian project over 6 years ago. We wanted to simplify viewing your content. Our team has attained that goal and with that in mind, Perian will be retired soon. Our stewardship has been a blast but it’s time for all of us to move on.

…….

Starting 90 days after the final Perian release, we will no longer provide support. We’ll wrap up our loose ends, pack up our bags, and move on to new and exciting projects.

Here’s what our roadmap looks like:

  • We will soon release the final version of Perian, including all the fixes we’ve worked on since the last release. It may — or may not — work on 10.8.
  • We will post the source code to either Google Code or Github.

Thanks to The Perian Project Team members for doing such a great job all these years.

Snow Leopard is on its way.

I have not moved my MobileMe account to iCloud yet for many reasons. Anyway, Apple offered me a free copy of Snow Leopard so I can upgrade to Lion. I already have OS X Lion on one of my Macs, but that’s beside the point. Let’s say I’m doing this for science.

Apple is mailing a copy of Mac OS X Snow Leopard to me and sent me the following email:

1. Get your free DVD of Snow Leopard
After you install Snow Leopard on your Mac, run Software Update from the Apple Menu to get Snow Leopard 10.6.8 with the Mac App Store.

2. Next, upgrade to Lion
Open the Mac App Store from the Dock and purchase Lion for $29.99.* The installer will download to the Dock and automatically launch.

3. You’re ready to move to iCloud
Your Mac is now ready for iCloud. Visit me.com/move from a Mac or PC to make the move to iCloud.
