                     16: <p>
                     17: Chimera will now move and shrink a browser window as necessary to
                     18: accommodate the sidebar.  If you don't move the window, then it will also
                     19: return to its original size and position after you close the sidebar.

                     24: save links and images to disk (although you won't see any progress

                     26: <p>
                     27: Chimera has fully implemented popup blocking, in a way that is
                     28: actually accessible to novice users.  Chimera can detect whether a popup
                     29: is of the evil variety and offers to enable popup blocking when it
                     30: encounters one of these popups.  Click Ok and you'll never be bothered
                     31: by popups again.  No mucking through advanced or obscure preferences
                     32: to figure out how to block popups.  Chimera takes care of this for you.

                     36: actions such as creating a bookmark, editing a bookmark, creating a folder
                     37: or removing a bookmark.  
                     38: <p>
                     39: You can now use Option+Click to save links (although again, no progress indication will be given yet).
                     40: <p>
