Preview Build of Mozilla Firefox with Mac OS X Native Form Controls Available

Tuesday May 15th, 2007

Josh Aas has announced the availability of a Mozilla Firefox preview build for Mac OS X with native form controls. The experimental build is currently only available for Intel-based Macs, though a PowerPC version is promised.

The lack of native Aqua-styled widgets for webpage form controls in the OS X edition of Firefox has been a source of complaint for many in the Mac community for a number of years. Josh hopes to be able to enable native form controls in the trunk builds of Firefox within the next few weeks, meaning that they should be included in the forthcoming Firefox 3.

The experimental build is a preview only and testers have been asked not to file bug reports for any issues they discover.

I wonder what this means for Camino... I have tried to use Camino before and found that it was not incorporating as many of the features that Firefox have, which forced me to go back to firefox (keyboard shortcuts missing, I'm not sure FAYT worked) but does this mean that Camino's purpose in "life" is now being eroded?

Shame, cos I liked the idea of it
