The newest build is 0.2.1.  (It will be available at midnight tonight!)  
At this time there are no available builds for download.  If you want<p>
to see Chimera in action, you'll have to bite the bullet and build itDownload Chimera <a href="http://people.netscape.com/sdagley/chimera/chimera21.dmg.gz">here</a>.  <font color=red>The MIME type from the Netscape server is incorrect, so instead of clicking on the link, use your context menu

<p>Building Chimera</b><br><p><b>What's New In 0.2.1</b>
 
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>  <p>
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.Find in Page and Find Again are now implemented.  
<P><p>
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.Chimera will now remember your window's size and position across launches,
 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. 
 <p>
 Enjoy!  <br>

 <p><b>Building Chimera</b><br>
 <p>
 Chimera has complete build instructions on mozilla's Web pages (under
 the code name ChimChim).  You can find those instructions
 <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.

 If you have questions about building, use the chimera mailing list or hop on to #mozilla, and someone can help you out.  If you have questions about building, use the chimera mailing list or hop on to #mozilla, and someone can help you out.
