i just downloaded it, and I love the brushed metal look. I think the entire iApps should go this way (I know most have) but so should the other utilites (CPU Monitor, SYS Prefs, etc...)

I think that this is very cool. All of the speed of Chimera, but now it looks better! I also dig the Green squid icon thing. If I every get an avatar, he might be it!

Go to prefs -> privacy -> check the plug ins box

thanks, i thought that would work but
the check box doesnt stay checked. it unchecks
itself. even though i ran the flash 6 installer.

Nice, but can anyone else get the Plug in box to stay checked. If no Flash, no can use. Also, with certain pages when you grab the scroll bar and pull it, the whole window moves. Sure do like the GUI though.

I had the same icon (the green sea monster thing) as my HD icon, so I had to change it to a picture of the world. It looks to much like OmniWeb's icon though.

Here you go...I love this browser. I'ts FAST.
I hope chimera will let us keep this interface.
One thing though...flash OR quick time won't
work.

I have QT....at least the movie trailers at the Apple site work just fine. You are right about Flash though.

I guess IMG code is OFF for some reason.

I looked at a bunch of the quicktime movie trailers in Cunning yesterday and it worked perfectly. Maybe you should reinstall it, you might have gotten an older version or something...

I'll give it a shot...what about flash content?
Have you had any luck? I tried enabeling the
"enable plugins" preference but Cunning seems
to uncheck it.

I havn't had a problem w/ flash or quicktime. I went to a Flash site last night...

Cunning is just a changed build of Chimera. From the Chimera mailing list you can know that this pref checkbox is there, but un-implemented :-)

So just wait and things will get solved. It is still a beta version...

Yea, i figured that it was just not implemented
yet. I really like their browser. I hope they keep
the speed.

Looks pretty cool... I'm downloading it now. Anyone had any serious problems with Cunning yet?

OK... I'm using it now. So far, so good. Seems to render pages just as fast as plain old Chimera and I like the new look*

I have switched back to regular old Chimera. There is really no reason to use Cunning. Sure it looks good, but Chimera looks good too, and it doesn't have all the small errors that Cunning has. I still think cunning is really cool though.

WOW!!!!! Now this is a great browser.

Some wierd scrolling issues...and no plugins as mentioned. But the look is callente!

blackpeter

Yep. I the look alone makes it look straight from Apple itself. I was using 9 earlier today and I swear IE for 9 is slower than this Chimera OS X offshoot.
