    2: <!-- MAIN CONTENT -->
    3: <P><B>Installation</B><BR>
    4: The newest build is 0.2.1.  (It will be available at midnight tonight!)  
    5: <p>
    6: Download 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
    7: to "Save Link As...".</font>
    8: <p>
    9: <p><b>What's New In 0.2.1</b>
   10: <p>
   11: <p>
   12: Find in Page and Find Again are now implemented.  
   13: <p>
   14: Chimera will now remember your window's size and position across launches,
   15: so you don't have to constantly resize your browser window any more.
   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.
   20: <p>
   21: Context menus are now in place for all objects (links, images, input fields).
   22: Several commands have been hooked up, including Back/Forward/Reload,
   23: the ability to open links in new windows and tabs, and the ability to
   24: save links and images to disk (although you won't see any progress
   25: yet while saving).
   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.
   33: <p>
   34: The bookmarks sidebar has been revamped with all new icons.  Menu bookmarks will now show up
   35: after you add them.  The sidebar has a new bookmark task bar for common
   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>
   41: 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. 
   42: <p>
   43: Enjoy!  <br>

   47: <p><b>Building Chimera</b><br>
   48: <p>
   49: Chimera has complete build instructions on mozilla's Web pages (under
   50: the code name ChimChim).  You can find those instructions
   51: <a href="http://www.mozilla.org/ports/fizzilla/ChimChim.html">here</a>.
   52: Be aware that the downloadable build listed above contains numerous
   53: patches to Mozilla that have not yet been accepted, so any builds that
   54: you do will not be as stable or as performant as the downloadable
   55: build above.
   56: <p>
   57: If you have questions about building, use the chimera mailing list or hop on to #mozilla, and someone can help you out.
