<p><b>What's New In 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.
<p>
If you have questions about building, use the chimera mailing list or hop on to #mozilla, and someone can help you out.
