1.18    ! hyatt      11: fixes.  This build is also 5% faster than 0.1.2. :)

1.15      hyatt      16: For the curious, I have posted the results of a browser showdown
                     17: between the major OS X browsers.  The clear speed winner?  Chimera, of
                     18: course!  Check out the details <a href="showdown.html">here</a>!.
1.17      hyatt      19: Of course all we do is speed right now, so until we're a full-featured
                     20: browser, take this with a grain of salt. :)

1.14      hyatt      22: Version 0.12 of Chimera is now available for download.  As per your
                     23: feedback, it is a disk
                     24: image (and does not use the .pkg installer).  You can download it
1.16      macserv    25: <a href="http://homepage.mac.com/macserv/downloads/chimera12.dmg.gz">here</a>.

                     27: This build of Chimera contains the following improvements over 0.11:
                     28: <ul>
                     29: <li>Scroll wheel support
                     30: <li>Support for key events (so you can type/scroll/submit forms etc.)
                     31: <li>Support for hover feedback and cursor feedback
                     32: <li>Many crash fixes
                     33: <li>Improved scrolling speed (yes, ma, we blit now)
                     34: </ul>
                     35: <P>
                     36: Quartz rendering is getting closer to being a reality, but it's not quite
                     37: there yet.  Maybe for 0.2.  :)
                     38: <p>
                     39: Enjoy!  Feedback/comments are always welcome on the mailing
                     40: list.  This build specifically addresses the top initial complaints about
                     41: Chimera.  Let us know what we're doing wrong (and right), so we can make
                     42: the best OS X browser out there! :)

                     45: Version 0.11 of Chimera is now available for download.  For those of you
                     46: using 0.1, 0.11 is 33% faster! :)  You can download this build

                     50: The tab browser is up and limping in Chimera.  We also have our first
                     51: downloadable build available.  You can fetch that 
1.13      macserv    52: <a href="http://homepage.mac.com/macserv/downloads/chimera-0.1.tar.gz">here</a>.  It really isn't
1.11      hyatt      53: usable yet, but enough people seem to want to play with
                     54: builds anyway. :)

1.10      hyatt      56: <b>2/9/2002</b><br>
                     57: Bookmarks are online in Chimera.  They can be accessed from the bookmarks
                     58: sidebar panel and from the top-level menu.  You can add and delete
                     59: bookmarks.
                     60: The status bar is now live and updates when the page loads.

1.7       hyatt      64: Chimera is coming along quite nicely!  We have icons for all of the
                     65: toolbar buttons (and they're all hooked up).  Printing works, and
                     66: we have cache and global history hooked up.
                     67: <p>
                     68: Everything in the File menu is implemented.  This includes the ability
                     69: to open and close windows, to open files, to open a web location,
                     70: to work offline and online, and to save Web pages, both in a complete
                     71: form (including images) or in a simple form (source only).
                     72: <p>
1.8       hyatt      73: <b>1/27/2002</b><br>
1.3       hyatt      74: This is the project page for <b>Chimera</b>, a new project aimed at
                     75: delivering a best-of-breed browser on the OS X platform.  Chimera
                     76: uses <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/ports/fizzilla/Cocoazilla.html">
                     77: Cocoazilla</a>, a variant of <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/ports/fizzilla/">
                     78: Fizzilla</a> that consists of a UNIX back end wed to a Cocoa front end.
                     79: <p>
                     80: The cross-platform UI will be replaced with native Cocoa widgetry (such as
                     81: customizable toolbars and a drawer for the sidebar).  The plan is to
                     82: produce only a browser (no other apps!), and to keep the UI as simple
                     83: and as clean as possible.  
                     84: <p>
                     85: Current project contributors include myself (hyatt@netscape.com) and
                     86: Matt Judy (macserv@nibfile.com).  If you are interested in getting
                     87: involved, contact one of us!  There's plenty of work to go around!
