<p><b>What's New In 0.2.1</b>The above build contains experimental plugin support.  If you value stability on pages
 with plugins, you will probably want to avoid this build.  If you want to see our progress,
 then happy downloading.  If not, you should probably stick with 0.2.3.

Find in Page and Find Again are now implemented.  <b>What's New (0.2.3 -> 0.2.4)</b>
 <p>  <p>
Chimera will now remember your window's size and position across launches,Plugins plugins plugins!  Quicktime seems to work rather well, but Flash still has several
so you don't have to constantly resize your browser window any more.crashers.  Pages with Flash *will* be unstable in this build.  Do not replace 0.2.3 with
 this build unless you like living on the edge. :)
 <p>  <p>
Chimera will now move and shrink a browser window as necessary to- Gamma correction has been returned (hopefully) to the 0.2.1 level.
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>  <p>
Context menus are now in place for all objects (links, images, input fields).- Font defaults have been tweaked a fair bit to hopefully provide a better default browsing
Several commands have been hooked up, including Back/Forward/Reload,experience than 0.2.3.
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>  <p>
Chimera has fully implemented popup blocking, in a way that is- Popups now position themselves better. (I won't go so far as to say "properly", but they're
actually accessible to novice users.  Chimera can detect whether a popupbetter.)
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>  <p>
The bookmarks sidebar has been revamped with all new icons.  Menu bookmarks will now show up- Textareas now have an Aqua appearance (this was left out of 0.2.3).
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>  <p>
You can now use Option+Click to save links (although again, no progress indication will be given yet).<b>What's New (0.2.2 -> 0.2.3)</b>
 <p>  <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. Chimera 0.2.2 was compiled with correct ATSUI (ATSUI with kerning and ligatures
 enabled).  Yes, we have that working, but as you saw, it slows things down substantially.
 Chimera 0.2.3 returns to the fast ATSUI as the default.  This pref will eventually be
 exposed in Advanced preferences (along with the ability to use Quickdraw as well).
 <p>
 The gamma correction regression present in 0.2.2 has been fixed in 0.2.3.
 <p>
 The form controls are now Aqua.  This includes button, checkboxes, radio buttons, textfields,
 listboxes and menulists.  Most importantly menulists now function! :)
 <p>
 Some more crash fixes also made it into 0.2.3.
 <P>
 Enjoy!

 <p><b>What's New (0.2.1 -> 0.2.2)</b>
 <p>
 Chimera can now open URLs sent to it from other apps, so you can
 now make Chimera your default browser and not have it sit there
 looking stupid when you tell it to load something. ;)
 <p>
 Text Zoom has been implemented, so you can now increase and decrease
 the font size used in a Web page.
 <p>
 Chimera now obeys the new minimum font size pref, ensuring that 
 Quartz-rendered fonts don't fall below the typical anti-aliasing cutoff
 point.
 Quartz rendering has been improved.  In addition to being speedier,
 it now has fixes for printing and for text spacing.
 <p>
 Chimera now has a bookmarks toolbar.  Like the Mozilla Classic personal
 toolbar, Chimera's toolbar can wrap to multiple rows and supports pages
 and folders.
 <p>
 Bookmarks management has been improved.  You can now specify where you
 want to create a new bookmark.  You can now create new folders.  
 The sidebar tree widget has been enhanced to support more keyboard
 navigation (left/right arrows to open/close, return to launch,
 delete key to delete, etc.).  
 <p>
 Bookmark groups have been fully implemented.  When adding a bookmark
 with multiple tabs open, you have the option of bookmarking all the
 tabs as a single group.  Use this feature to load bundles of pages in a single
 click!
 <p>
 Background tab loading will now work.  Background tabs will now refresh
 properly if left unattended.
 <p>  <p>
 Enjoy!  <br>  Enjoy!  <br>
