<p><b>What's New In 0.2.0</b></a>
The latest build of Chimera demonstrates a highly experimentalNightly builds are not official.  They are an up-to-the-day snapshot of
implementation of Quartz rendering.  The current build locks youcurrent development.
into Quartz, but the Quickdraw renderer will still be available 
via a pref in a later point release.  For now you're locked into 
Quartz with the current build.  Also, printing with Quartz turned on 
is pretty busted, so don't even bother. :) 
Chimera 0.2.0 has much improved scrolling over previous versions. 
Most importantly it now uses native Aqua scrollbars rather than  
emulating the look via the Appearance Manager.  Scrolling is also 
much faster, using both the wheel and the keyboard. 
The tab browser feature has had some crash fixes and speed 
enhancements.  You can now also cycle through tabs via the keyboard 
and close tabs.  In addition the tab strip will auto-hide when only 
one tab is being used. 
Support for Command and Shift clicking of links has been added.  You 
can use Command+Click to open a link in a new window.  If you use the 
Shift modifier, the window will load in the background.  You can also 
make Command/Shift open tabs instead by setting the same pref that is 
used by Mozilla.  The load links in background pref that Mozilla uses 
is also supported by Chimera.  (These prefs aren't exposed in Chimera's 
UI yet, so you'll have to enter your secret .mozilla dir and edit your 
prefs.js by hand.) 
Chimera 0.2.0 has a new splash screen, application icon, and new toolbar 
and sidebar icons.  
Finally and most importantly Chimera has had many crash fixes and 
stability fixes.   
Enjoy!  <br> 
<p><b>Building Chimera</b><br> 
 <p>  <p>
Chimera has complete build instructions on mozilla's Web pages (under<b>What's New (0.3)</b>
the code name ChimChim).  You can find those instructions 
<a href="http://www.mozilla.org/ports/fizzilla/ChimChim.html">here</a>. 
Be aware that the downloadable build listed above contains numerous 
patches to Mozilla that have not yet been accepted, so any builds that 
you do will not be as stable or as performant as the downloadable 
build above. 
 <p>  <p>
If you have questions about building, use the chimera mailing list or hop on to #mozilla, and someone can help you out.The smooth text implementation now relies on new 10.1.5 features.  It is now
 only 5% slower than the unsmoothed text, and about 30% faster than the smooth
 text feature in 0.2.8.  You'll find that most operations (typing in text fields,
 resizing of windows, scrolling) are now much faster as well.
 The build is much smaller because of a change in build process.  This makes
 page loads a bit faster.
 You can now edit bookmarks.
 Many crash fixes. :)  This build is much more stable than 0.2.8.
