Context menus are now in place for all objects (links, images, input fields).You can now edit bookmarks.
Several commands have been hooked up, including Back/Forward/Reload, 
the ability to open links in new windows and tabs, and the ability to 
save links and images to disk (although you won't see any progress 
yet while saving).

actually accessible to novice users.  Chimera can detect whether a popup 
is of the evil variety and offers to enable popup blocking when it 
encounters one of these popups.  Click Ok and you'll never be bothered 
by popups again.  No mucking through advanced or obscure preferences 
to figure out how to block popups.  Chimera takes care of this for you. 
<p> 
The bookmarks sidebar has been revamped with all new icons.  Menu bookmarks will now show up 
after you add them.  The sidebar has a new bookmark task bar for common 
actions such as creating a bookmark, editing a bookmark, creating a folder 
or removing a bookmark.

You can now use Option+Click to save links (although again, no progress indication will be given yet).

Other miscellaneous fixes: The horizontal scrollbar problem has been fixed in 0.2.1.  Tab keyboard navigation has been improved.  Textfields no longer have trouble accepting input.  The Home gaffe (mapping to the cycle windows key) has been fixed.  The sidebar crashes have been fixed.

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.
