Interview with Camino project head Mike Pinkerton
Since its beginnings, Chimera/Camino has occupied a special place in the heart of OS X users. As a Cocoa port of the open source Mozilla project, Camino was at one point the most popular browser on OS X. It looked like an OS X application and rendered most of the Internet well, something that could not be said of its early competitors OmniWeb 4.0, Internet Explorer 5.2, and Mozilla. All of the other browsers either looked strangely out of place in the OS X Aqua GUI or had difficulties with some sites.
