The developers of the free, open-source Camino browser for Mac OS X have announced that it will no longer be developed after a decade-long run. They are now encouraging existing users to adopt a “more modern browser,” such as Chrome, Firefox, or Safari.

“After a decade-long run, Camino is no longer being developed, and we encourage all users to upgrade to a more modern browser,” the team writes on its blog, before accepting that “Camino is increasingly lagging behind the fast pace of changes on the web.”

They also note that Camino is not receiving security updates, which makes it “increasingly unsafe to use.”

“Fortunately, Mac users have many more browsers to choose from than they did when Camino started ten years ago,” they added.

“Former Camino developers have helped build the three most popular – Chrome, Firefox, and Safari – so while this is the end of Camino itself, the community that helped build it is still making the web better for Mac users.”

Google Chrome browser is currently the world’s most popular web browser with a 33.71% market share, according to the latest statistics from StatCounter. Microsoft’s Internet Explorer is second with 25.58%, and Mozilla Firefox is third with 17.27%.

Apple’s Safari browser, which comes pre-installed on every Mac, claims just 6.89% market share on desktops.
