   We are currently working on version 0.2 of Chimera.  It should be
   coming your way fairly soon.  
   I received feedback from loyal Omniweb users requesting that I produce
   numbers using the latest Sneakypeeks rather than 4.1b1.  I was told that
   the latest SP was substantially faster.  That is absolutely true.  Check
   out Omniweb's improved numbers in the page load tests
   <a href="showdown.html">here</a>.
   I also received feedback from iCab users asking me to run
   iCab through the page load tests.  I should clarify why iCab was
   left out of the tests.  The problem with iCab is that it does not wait
   until images on a page have loaded before it claims that the page is
   fully loaded.  This means that the numbers that it scores on the test
   are inaccurate, because they don't include the time for loading images.
   This is in direct violation of the specified behavior for load handlers,
   so iCab was disqualified from all tests.
   Version 0.1.3 of Chimera is now available for download.
   It contains support for security (SSL, HTTPS, etc.) as well as
   support for alerts and user/password prompts, and some more crash
   fixes.  This build is also 5% faster than 0.1.2. :)
   You can download it from the installation page.  
   For the curious, I have posted the results of a browser showdown
   between the major OS X browsers.  The clear speed winner?  Chimera, of
   course!  Check out the details <a href="showdown.html">here</a>!.
   Of course all we do is speed right now, so until we're a full-featured
   browser, take this with a grain of salt. :)
   Version 0.12 of Chimera is now available for download.  As per your
   feedback, it is a disk
   image (and does not use the .pkg installer).  You can download it
   <a href="http://homepage.mac.com/macserv/downloads/chimera12.dmg.gz">here</a>.  
   This build of Chimera contains the following improvements over 0.11:
   <li>Scroll wheel support
   <li>Support for key events (so you can type/scroll/submit forms etc.)
   <li>Support for hover feedback and cursor feedback
   <li>Many crash fixes
   <li>Improved scrolling speed (yes, ma, we blit now)
   Quartz rendering is getting closer to being a reality, but it's not quite
   there yet.  Maybe for 0.2.  :)
   Enjoy!  Feedback/comments are always welcome on the mailing
   list.  This build specifically addresses the top initial complaints about
   Chimera.  Let us know what we're doing wrong (and right), so we can make
   the best OS X browser out there! :)
   Version 0.11 of Chimera is now available for download.  For those of you
   using 0.1, 0.11 is 33% faster! :)  You can download this build
   <a href="http://homepage.mac.com/macserv/downloads/chimera-0.11.tar.gz">here</a>.
   The tab browser is up and limping in Chimera.  We also have our first
   downloadable build available.  You can fetch that 
   <a href="http://homepage.mac.com/macserv/downloads/chimera-0.1.tar.gz">here</a>.  It really isn't
   usable yet, but enough people seem to want to play with
   builds anyway. :)
   Bookmarks are online in Chimera.  They can be accessed from the bookmarks
   sidebar panel and from the top-level menu.  You can add and delete
   The status bar is now live and updates when the page loads.
   Chimera is coming along quite nicely!  We have icons for all of the
   toolbar buttons (and they're all hooked up).  Printing works, and
   we have cache and global history hooked up.
   Everything in the File menu is implemented.  This includes the ability
   to open and close windows, to open files, to open a web location,
   to work offline and online, and to save Web pages, both in a complete
   form (including images) or in a simple form (source only).
