 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.
