At this time there are no available builds for download.  If you wantThe newest build is 0.2.0.  <font color=red>The build is
to see Chimera in action, you'll have to bite the bullet and build itbeing placed on sdagley's people page at Netscape.  It's in
yourself.the queue for publication, so it should show up in a few hours.

<p>Building Chimera</b><br><p>
Download Chimera <a href="downloads/chimera-latest.dmg.gz">here</a>.
Follow all of the instructions <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/ports/fizzilla/">here</a> for building Cocoazilla and CocoaEmbed.  Although you don't technically have to build CocoaEmbed, you do have to use Project Builder to build the NSBrowserView framework in mozilla/embedding/browser/cocoa. 
 <p>  <p>
Once you have a Cocoazilla build, you should then pull the chimera files.  You should check out from the directory above your mozilla source tree, so that you end up with chimera as a sibling directory of mozilla.<p><b>What's New In 0.2.0</b>
 <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>
 Chimera 0.2.0 has a new splash screen, application icon, and new toolbar
 and sidebar icons. 
 <p>
 Finally and most importantly Chimera has had many crash fixes and
 stability fixes.  
 <p>
 Enjoy!  <br>

You should then open up the chimera project in Project Builder and build it.  It will handle copying all of the files that it needs out of the mozilla source tree and will produce a complete Chimera.app that you can then run.Chimera has complete build instructions on mozilla's Web pages (under
<P>the code name ChimChim).  You can find those instructions
Be patient with the build process.  You may find that CocoaZilla is on the floor from time to time (or that Chimera is on the floor even though CocoaZilla builds).  We'll do our best to keep the Chimera side of things operational, but we can't guarantee stability in the mozilla source tree.<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.
