Camino - a Mozilla browser with Safari polish

Camino, a Mozilla-based web browser for Mac OS X, is getting close to version 1.0. And it is really good. I've been using Camino mostly for testing since it first appeared, but with the release of Camino 1.0 Beta 1 I'm giving it a try as my default browser. Yes, it's that good.

Many Mac users, including myself, prefer Safari to Firefox because it has a much more polished GUI. Well, Camino is pretty much Firefox with a true Mac look-and-feel. And no brushed metal. So if that's what you're looking for, Camino is the answer.

One of my few complaints is about the non-standard keyboard mapping. Why not use Cmd + and Cmd - for text resizing, like all other browsers? Very odd, and hopefully something that can be changed - anyone know how?

Other than that - yummy!
