This is a new OSX browser from the makers of Mozilla. Pretty darn fast but still in alpha stage. If this continues at this rate, it'll be my main browser.<br><br>http://www.versiontracker.com/moreinfo.fcgi?id=14326&db=mac<br><br>from Versiontracker:<br><br>Product Description:<br>Chimera is a new project aimed at delivering a best-of-breed browser on the OS X platform. Chimera uses Cocoazilla, a variant of Fizzilla that consists of a UNIX back end wed to a Cocoa front end. The cross-platform UI will be replaced with native Cocoa widgetry (such as customizable toolbars and a drawer for the sidebar). The plan is to produce only a browser (no other apps!), and to keep the UI as simple and as clean as possible.<br><br><br><br><br>What's new in this version:<br><br>• Find in Page and Find Again are now implemented.<br>• Chimera will now remember your window's size and position across launches, so you don't have to constantly resize your browser window any more.<br>• Chimera will now move and shrink a browser window as necessary to accommodate the sidebar. If you don't move the window, then it will also return to its original size and position after you close the sidebar.<br>• Context menus are now in place for all objects (links, images, input fields). Several commands have been hooked up, including Back/Forward/Reload, the ability to open links in new windows and tabs, and the ability to save links and images to disk (although you won't see any progress yet while saving).<br>• Chimera has fully implemented popup blocking, in a way that is actually accessible to novice users. Chimera can detect whether a popup is of the evil variety and offers to enable popup blocking when it encounters one of these popups. Click Ok and you'll never be bothered by popups again. No mucking through advanced or obscure preferences to figure out how to block popups. Chimera takes care of this for you.<br>• The bookmarks sidebar has been revamped with all new icons. Menu bookmarks will now show up after you add them. The sidebar has a new bookmark task bar for common actions such as creating a bookmark, editing a bookmark, creating a folder or removing a bookmark.<br>• You can now use Option+Click to save links (although again, no progress indication will be given yet).<br>• 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.<br><br><br>
http://www.versiontracker.com/moreinfo.fcgi?id=14326&db=macosx<br><br>What's new in this version:<br><br>• 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. ;)<br>• Text Zoom has been implemented, so you can now increase and decrease the font size used in a Web page.<br>• 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.<br>• 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.<br>• 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.).<br>• 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!<br>• Background tab loading will now work. Background tabs will now refresh properly if left unattended.<br><br><br><br>
