Apple needs to ship Chimera as the default browser. <br><br>

Chimera's great, although I have been apprehensive on downloading the nightly builds, has anyone had any problems?<br><br>[color:blue]If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door. - Milton Berle</font color=blue>

You did know that Apple hired the lead programmer for chimera, didn't you? I wouldn't be shocked to see Chimera rebranded and built in to the OS... you never know! <br><br><br>Visit me here!

Mozilla Macho-O is better. But I use Chimera too. The lizard rules!<br><br><br><br>

Don't get me wrong folks, I think Chimera is great too. But, I feel that for my needs Mozilla has more prefs options and better cookie management. Speedwise, this Mach-O build is as fast, if not a bit faster than Chimera on my dualie. I agree with Ganey though, Mozilla should have the option of not installing the other stuff if you don't want it. Still, it doesn't bother me to have it there, I just don't use what I don't need like the mail. The IRC client is nice to have though. I still can't scroll in this text box in Chimera. <br><br>EDIT: I can "scroll" if I highlight the text in Chimera, but technically there are no scroll bars. That screenshot from this morning, which I don't think ever showed up, shows that. Oh well, I love 'em all. What's IE?<br><br><P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by mikeb_X on 12/03/02 10:45 PM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>

It is great to have options though, isn't it?<br><br>

Yep, I use Chimera a lot too. I recently also got interested again in OW 4.1, I have a license for it that I got from workfor it (free sample). Boy, it works really well on the dualie too. Almost as fast as the other two browsers we have talked about, I was amazed it was as fast as it was. <br><br>So yes, it is good to have all these choices and I am happy to see people excited about their browser(s) in OS X.<br><br>

I can't wait for OW5 and IE6. It will be interesting to see what they have to offer. <br><br>

Let me try that screenshot again. Yes, OW 5 should be interesting, hope they get it out soon.<br><br>EDIT: Hmmm, just checked the image on the iDisk. Zero K. Could be the problem, eh? Nothing there. That is really weird, it was about 44K when I looked at it on the iDisk this morning. <br><br><br><br>

I think I read on a mailing list that OW5 won't be out til mid to late next year. Hopefully, they will release Sneaky Peaks like they did with 4.1<br><br><br>Visit me here!
