I was noticing that with the last nightly. It's feeling more and more polished--more stable, less buggy, even faster.Originally posted by AmbitiousLemon
im using it right now, and you know what? that annoying spacebar bug is gone.
now that would be nice, but they did say they dont plan to go back until chimera hits 1.0...Originally posted by sparkleytone
and pleasepleaseplease pull back to the mozilla 1.1b branch for a SIGNIFICANT speed increase.
I am glad they switched to cmd+w. I had gotten used to cmd+y, but never thought it made much sense. I understood the reluctance (cmd+w=close window; we were closing a tab), but without a standard "close tab" command, cmd+w made the most sense (and is easier on the hands).Originally posted by sparkleytone
cmd+w closes the window. its a general mac command. as far as the opensource thing goes, theres a reason its being so vigorously worked on. basically its a project netscape has quietly put alot of emphasis on with some really good programmers, and they have given mike pinkerton a team of engineers to work with. while i think they are in general his peers, he is the owner of chimera right now, and netscape is his employer. i remember talking to dave hyatt a while ago and him saying something to the effect of chimera becoming netscape's OSX browser. hopefully they don't add the bloat. if they indeed continue on the current track, and apple doesnt jump into the browser market (i doubt they will), then Navigator will easily be the browser of choice by 1.0. that is my opinion of course.
I tried to export them, with the same results. Strange. Luckily, there is no reason to export them. They exist in a file called bookmarks.html, located in ~/Library/Mozilla/Profiles/default/pe7x7brx.slt. Do a Sherlock search for it. You'll find it. You can import your bookmarks to Chimera from there. That's what I did, anyway.Originally posted by AmbitiousLemon
...any other way to get the bookmarks out of mozilla?
You can adjust the fonts in the Preferences pane now. Give it a go.Originally posted by mac15
man chimera is getting better, can't wait for a 1.0 release
but the pages look crap, the fonts look so thin and crap
Not sure why Chimera is acting differently on my machine. I have actually been impressed with the downloading. It now shows the progress, and actually has a better throughput rate than any other browser I have used (which I don't understand at all)--about 20% faster (60k/sec vs. 75k/sec.).Originally posted by AmbitiousLemon
well i just switched back to mozilla. chimera seems to ahve some downlaoding issues. the file i downloaded would never show up. also the spacebar problem still exists on other sites (versiontracker). going to be hard switching back to moz though. i got really used to the outside apps opening a new tab instead of a new window feature. very nice.
