<p><b>What's New In 0.2.0</b><p><b>What's New In 0.2.1</b>
 <p>  <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>  <p>
Chimera 0.2.0 has a new splash screen, application icon, and new toolbarFind in Page and Find Again are now implemented.  
and sidebar icons.  
 <p>  <p>
Finally and most importantly Chimera has had many crash fixes andChimera will now remember your window's size and position across launches,
stability fixes.  so you don't have to constantly resize your browser window any more.
 <p>
 Chimera will now move and shrink a browser window as necessary to
 accommodate the sidebar.  If you don't move the window, then it will also
 return to its original size and position after you close the sidebar.
 <p>
 Context menus are now in place for all objects (links, images, input fields).
 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).
 <p>
 Chimera has fully implemented popup blocking, in a way that is
 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.  
 <p>
 You can now use Option+Click to save links (although again, no progress indication will be given yet).
 <p>
 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>  Enjoy!  <br>
