A couple of years ago, I was regularly building Camino (then called  
Chimera) from source, since nightlies weren't available, and found it  
to be an excellent browser: fast and lightweight.  I just pulled the  
latest nightly, and it looks like it's come a long way since then in  
terms of UI; very nice.
