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.
