<P><B>Installation</B><BR> 
The newest build is 0.2.0.   
<p> 
Download Chimera <a href="downloads/chimera-latest.dmg.gz">here</a>. 
<p> 
<p><b>What's New In 0.2.0</b> 
<p> 
The latest build of Chimera demonstrates a highly experimental 
implementation of Quartz rendering.  The current build locks you 
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. :) 
<p> 
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. 
<p> 
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. 
<p> 
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.) 
<p> 
Chimera 0.2.0 has a new splash screen, application icon, and new toolbar 
and sidebar icons.  
<p> 
Finally and most importantly Chimera has had many crash fixes and 
stability fixes.   
<p> 
Enjoy!  <br>

<p><b>Building Chimera</b><br> 
<p> 
Chimera has complete build instructions on mozilla's Web pages (under 
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> 
If you have questions about building, use the chimera mailing list or hop on to #mozilla, and someone can help you out.
