 <b>What's New (0.2.4 -> 0.2.5)</b>
 <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>
 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>
 Menulist popups will now position themselves properly when the page is scrolled.
 <p>
 You can now drag and drop links from a page onto Gecko windows to load the URL in that
 window.
 <p>
 <b>What's New (0.2.3 -> 0.2.4)</b>
 <p>
 Plugins plugins plugins!  Quicktime seems to work rather well, but Flash still has several
 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>
 - Gamma correction has been returned (hopefully) to the 0.2.1 level.
 <p>
 - Font defaults have been tweaked a fair bit to hopefully provide a better default browsing
 experience than 0.2.3.
 <p>
 - 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>  <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>
   Enjoy!  <br>
