The newest build of Chimera is 0.2.4.  You can download it from the following location:
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 it<a href="http://idisk.mac.com/mozilladave/Public/chimera24.dmg.gz">Dave's iDisk</a><br>
yourself.<p>
The above build contains experimental plugin support.  If you value stability on pages
<p>Building Chimera</b><br>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.
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>

 <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>  <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.- Popups now position themselves better. (I won't go so far as to say "properly", but they're
 better.)
 <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.- 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>  <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.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>

 <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.
