– Camino now has support for making the entire contents of a web page bigger or smaller.
– If Growl is installed, Camino will generate notifications when downloads begin and finish.

Recently closed pages:
-The History menu now contains a sub-menu listing the last 20 closed web pages.
Improved support for Full Keyboard Access:
– When Full Keyboard Access is enabled, tabbing now moves correctly through the entire browser window.
Enhanced annoyance blocking:
– Camino now includes an exceptions list to allow disabling “Block Flash animations” on a per-site basis and an “Allow Flash From This Site” contextual menu item to ease adding sites to the exceptions list.
New AppleScript capabilities:
– AppleScripts can now obtain the HTML source or text of an entire web page or of a selection.
– Added AppleScript support for setting the active tab in each browser window.
