        !             8: The above build contains experimental plugin support.  If you value stability on pages
        !             9: with plugins, you will probably want to avoid this build.  If you want to see our progress,
        !            10: then happy downloading.  If not, you should probably stick with 0.2.3.

        !            17: <p>
        !            18: Plugins plugins plugins!  Quicktime seems to work rather well, but Flash still has several
        !            19: crashers.  Pages with Flash *will* be unstable in this build.  Do not replace 0.2.3 with
        !            20: this build unless you like living on the edge. :)
        !            21: <p>
        !            22: - Gamma correction has been returned (hopefully) to the 0.2.1 level.
        !            23: <p>
        !            24: - Font defaults have been tweaked a fair bit to hopefully provide a better default browsing
        !            25: experience than 0.2.3.
        !            26: <p>
        !            27: - Popups now position themselves better. (I won't go so far as to say "properly", but they're
        !            28: better.)
        !            29: <p>
        !            30: - Textareas now have an Aqua appearance (this was left out of 0.2.3).

1.25      hyatt      34: Chimera 0.2.2 was compiled with correct ATSUI (ATSUI with kerning and ligatures
                     35: enabled).  Yes, we have that working, but as you saw, it slows things down substantially.
                     36: Chimera 0.2.3 returns to the fast ATSUI as the default.  This pref will eventually be
                     37: exposed in Advanced preferences (along with the ability to use Quickdraw as well).
                     38: <p>
                     39: The gamma correction regression present in 0.2.2 has been fixed in 0.2.3.
                     40: <p>
                     41: The form controls are now Aqua.  This includes button, checkboxes, radio buttons, textfields,
                     42: listboxes and menulists.  Most importantly menulists now function! :)
                     43: <p>
                     44: Some more crash fixes also made it into 0.2.3.

1.23      hyatt      51: Chimera can now open URLs sent to it from other apps, so you can
                     52: now make Chimera your default browser and not have it sit there
                     53: looking stupid when you tell it to load something. ;)

1.22      hyatt      55: Text Zoom has been implemented, so you can now increase and decrease

1.19      hyatt      57: <p>
1.22      hyatt      58: Chimera now obeys the new minimum font size pref, ensuring that 
                     59: Quartz-rendered fonts don't fall below the typical anti-aliasing cutoff
                     60: point.
                     61: Quartz rendering has been improved.  In addition to being speedier,
                     62: it now has fixes for printing and for text spacing.
                     63: <p>
                     64: Chimera now has a bookmarks toolbar.  Like the Mozilla Classic personal
                     65: toolbar, Chimera's toolbar can wrap to multiple rows and supports pages
                     66: and folders.

                     68: Bookmarks management has been improved.  You can now specify where you

                     71: navigation (left/right arrows to open/close, return to launch,
                     72: delete key to delete, etc.).  
                     73: <p>
                     74: Bookmark groups have been fully implemented.  When adding a bookmark
                     75: with multiple tabs open, you have the option of bookmarking all the
                     76: tabs as a single group.  Use this feature to load bundles of pages in a single
