Spread the love

The Mozilla Organization has provided its web browser for the Mac OS X platform, Mozilla Camino, with the first release candidate of the 1.0 series. This web browser uses Cocoa for the user interface and the Gecko engine to render web pages. In addition, the program has tabbed browsing, a popup blocker and a Google search field. The included list of changes looks like this:

Version 1.0rc1:

  • General
    • Camino is now built as a universal binary, and runs natively on PowerPC- and Intel-based Macs.
    • Remapped command scroll to standard scroll. Scrolling while holding the Control key now changes text size, and scrolling while holding the Option key navigates through history.
    • Added command-shift-L as shortcut for Email Page Location.
    • Fixed several tooltip issues.
    • Fixed user interface lockups that occurred when Camino displayed up a sheet or window while a modal dialog or sheet was already open.
    • Fixed an issue causing sheets to appear in the lower-left corner of the screen.
    • Fixed a problem causing loss of focus when hiding and then showing Camino.
    • Fixed an issue where showing a sheet in one window would cause backwards typing in other windows.
  • Bookmarks
    • Implemented bookmark arrangement:
      • Selecting a single folder will sort its children.
      • Selecting two or more items will sort them together.
      • Holding down the Option key will do a deep sort of all selected items.
      • If nothing is selected, the current collection is sorted (if allowed).
    • Re-ordered the bookmarks and history context menus slightly to reduce the number of separators.
    • Fixed the bookmarks toolbar to update appropriately when items are re-ordered.
    • The outline and table views now respond to the home and end keys by scrolling to the top and bottom.
    • When the bookmarks file is corrupt, a copy is now saved.

    • Added a Page Info window containing a combination of encryption and certificates related information.
    • Added “.p7b” and “.pkcs7” to the list of file extensions allowed when importing certificate files.

  • preferences
    • Added warning sheets when clearing the cache and history in the preferences, and standardize the terminology.
    • Added a “Are you sure?” warning before clearing all the cookie site exceptions.
    • Make sure that the “Remove All” button in the “Edit exceptions list” sheet only removes the cookie permissions, and not any others.
    • Allow users to select one or more cookies and say “block these sites” to add the sites to the “deny” list.
    • The UI in the Cookies and Exceptions sheets now uses action buttons, and saves the table and window state.
    • Properly save the preference window location.

    • Use a file system notification to detect when downloaded files are moved or deleted, and update UI accordingly.
