<p><b>What's New In 0.2.1</b><b>What's New (0.2.4 -> 0.2.5)</b>
 <p>  <p>
   Plugin support has been greatly improved.  Crashes when scrolling pages with Flash have
   been fixed.  This build is generally much more stable with plugins than 0.2.4.  Plugins
   will now stay inside the window and not paint on your toolbars and status bar.  
 <p>  <p>
Find in Page and Find Again are now implemented.  The ability to choose your renderer has been fully implemented.  From the View menu,
 you can select "Smooth Text" to use Quartz anti-aliasing.  If you turn this option off,
 you will be using Quickdraw un-antialiased text.  International users can turn off
 the Quartz anti-aliasing to view non-Roman characters.  This can also be used as a good
 debugging tool to find out whether performance or rendering problems are specific to our
 Quartz rendering implementation.
 <p>  <p>
Chimera will now remember your window's size and position across launches,Menulist popups will now position themselves properly when the page is scrolled.
so you don't have to constantly resize your browser window any more. 
 <p>  <p>
Chimera will now move and shrink a browser window as necessary toYou can now drag and drop links from a page onto Gecko windows to load the URL in that

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).<b>What's New (0.2.3 -> 0.2.4)</b>
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>  <p>
Chimera has fully implemented popup blocking, in a way that isPlugins plugins plugins!  Quicktime seems to work rather well, but Flash still has several
actually accessible to novice users.  Chimera can detect whether a popupcrashers.  Pages with Flash *will* be unstable in this build.  Do not replace 0.2.3 with

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- Gamma correction has been returned (hopefully) to the 0.2.1 level.
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).- Font defaults have been tweaked a fair bit to hopefully provide a better default browsing
 experience than 0.2.3.
 <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. - Popups now position themselves better. (I won't go so far as to say "properly", but they're
 better.)
 <p>
 - Textareas now have an Aqua appearance (this was left out of 0.2.3).
 <p>
 <b>What's New (0.2.2 -> 0.2.3)</b>
 <p>
 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>
