<b>2/4/2002 Status Report</b>
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.
<p>
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).
<p>
<b>1/27/2002</b>
This is the project page for <b>Chimera</b>, a new project aimed at
delivering a best-of-breed browser on the OS X platform.  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 wed to a Cocoa front end.
<p>
The cross-platform UI will be replaced with native Cocoa widgetry (such as
customizable toolbars and a drawer for the sidebar).  The plan is to
produce only a browser (no other apps!), and to keep the UI as simple
and as clean as possible.  
<p>
Current project contributors include myself (hyatt@netscape.com) and
Matt Judy (macserv@nibfile.com).  If you are interested in getting
involved, contact one of us!  There's plenty of work to go around!

Open File and Open Location now work.  Unlike current builds of Mozilla,
the Open File dialog does work when no windows are open, and it filters
out unavailable types.

The initial checkin of Chimera has landed!  A functional URL bar
and back/forward/reload/stop are now all working in the app.  A rudimentary
sidebar has also landed.
