 <p>There are two main types of browsers that are built using Mozilla.  Some developers choose to create their application using XUL, Mozilla's XML-based User Interface language.  Other developers prefer to use just Gecko, Mozilla's rendering, and then create the GUI of their browser using one of the toolkits native to a specific platform.  There are Gecko based browsers for each of the major operating systems in use today, including Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.  <p>There are two main types of browsers that are built using Mozilla.  Some developers choose to create their application using XUL, Mozilla's XML-based User Interface language.  Other developers prefer to use just Gecko, Mozilla's rendering, and then create the GUI of their browser using one of the toolkits native to a specific platform.  There are Gecko based browsers for each of the major operating systems in use today, including Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.
   
<p>*** need screenshot *** The goal of the <a href="http://chimera.mozdev.org">Chimera</a> project is to create a best-of-breed browser for the Mac OS X platform with an user-interface that is as simple and as clean as possible.  The most recent stable release, <a href="ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/chimera/releases/chimera-0.4.dmg.gz">Chimera 0.4</a>, is available for download along with <a href="ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/chimera/nightly/latest-trunk/">nightly development builds</a>.<p>*** need screenshot *** The goal of the <a href="http://chimera.mozdev.org">Chimera</a> project is to create a best-of-breed browser for the Mac OS X platform with an user-interface that is as simple and as clean as possible.  Chimera uses <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/ports/fizzilla/Cocoazilla.html">Cocoazilla</a>, a variant of <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/ports/fizzilla/">Fizzilla</a> that consists of a UNIX back end connected to a Cocoa front end.  Since Chimera uses a native toolkit to create it's GUI it can't run on any platform other than OS X, but since it doesn't use XUL it is faster than the default Mozilla browser on the same computer (applications written with XUL will always be slightly slower than applications written with native toolkits because *** need explanation here, ask brian ***).  The most recent stable release, <a href="ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/chimera/releases/chimera-0.4.dmg.gz">version 0.4</a>, is available for download along with <a href="ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/chimera/nightly/latest-trunk/">nightly development builds</a>.
