Camino is a Mac OS X web browser based on Mozilla. It replaces Mozilla's XUL-based user interface with a native Cocoa implementation. Camino doesn't include Mozilla's email or composer components; it concentrates on providing "just the browser" by embedding Mozilla's Gecko layout engine in a lightweight application.
Mike Pinkerton is the lead of the Camino project.
The browser was previously known as Chimera. Its name was changed on March 3, 2003 due to legal issues. Because of its roots in Greek mythology, Chimera has been a popular choice of name for hypermedia systems. One of the first graphical web browsers was called Chimera; researchers at the University of California, Irvine have also developed a complete hypermedia system of the same name.
