Update: Firefox has also (coincidentally?) released their 3.6 beta today.

 Watch out, there’s a new (Mac) browser heading to town, Camino 2.0.

The browser has reached its fourth beta version, and while developers warn it may not be stable and probably isn’t suitable for daily use, though you can stick with Safari or give Camino 1.6.10 a try, if you wish.

The browser is a lot like Safari and developed by Mozilla. This will be the last beta, and while there’s a healthy list of known bugs, this version’s in distribution to ensure no critical problems remain in advance of final release.

There’s a goodly list of new and exciting features, including tabbed browsing, new security features, content zoom, download notifications, support for Full Keyboard Access the capacity to block Flash apps by default (unless you want to watch particular ones), new AppleScript features – there’s loads, so we could go on.

Camino is an open source web browser which uses the Gecko rendering engine. The Camino Project works to create a browser that is as functional and elegant as the computers it runs on. The Camino web browser is powerful, secure, and ready to meet the needs of all users while remaining simple and elegant in its design.

Go and grab the beta here (illustration is of current stable 1.6.10 build).
