    well finally its hitting the point we have been waiting for. development is damn-near furious. there is now a nightly build section for snapshots leading to milestones. here's to the future of Chimera.

    sweet. thanks for the low down sparkleytone. i think the day i drop mozilla and move to chimera is still a ways off, but with every update it seems its not so far away as im assuming. the pace of open source development is really quite amazing.

    Mozilla + silk != Chimera

    I think Chimera has quite a few surprises left to be revealed. Mozilla is currently my browser of choice but I'm looking forward to running Chimera on a Jaguar OS and seeing what Apple has done to improve Cocoa apps. Carbon was always meant to be a seque layer for developers not an end of the road to be sure.

    Remember that Mozilla still has to support all those other platforms (Linux/Windoze/etc) while Chimera is only on OS X and can only be on OS X.

    Chimera looks to be the IE on Windows for OS X... as in it takes full advantage of the OS (think things like 'services' and interoperability with the whole iChat, Mail, Addressbook, Rendezvous nexus.
