Chimera 0.2 is here! If you haven't had a look at Chimera, now's a good time. It's still very much a work in progress, but it's coming along now... We just need some plugin support and the sidebar fixed up. Check it out -- http://chimera.mozdev.org

I haven't had a look at it before, I've been waiting for this release. I'm downloading it now... rest assured you'll know what I think of it! :)

OK, first impressions:

* After using OmniWeb, this browser is jaw-droppingly quick!
* It looks nice (fonts etc).
* The buttons (stop, reload etc) are tack and plasticy looking.
* Features? What features?

I don't think I will ever leave OmniWeb (regardless of how slow it is) unless the browser I move to will let me kill pop-ups and ads like OmniWeb can.

Am I missing it, or is there no way to increase font size?

I'll keep using it for a while. Looks like it will turn into a great product!

I haven't used it yet but I wish they had a classic version
But mozilla and IE are cool for now

Well after a pretty good work out, the only other bad thing I have to say about it is that the buttons, pull-down menus and other widgets are not aqua - they are suare, grey and ugly. It doesn't use the spell checker like OW does, either.

Very nice, though. And quick! Talk about quick! Not quite ready for the big time though, but very good for a 0.2 release.
