            There won't be a Chimera 1.0, as has been reported on /. recently, they have to change the name for legal reasons, but whatever it's called, it's going to rock.

            I've been using the 0.6 stable nightly build they recommended on 10.1.5 and 10.2.3/4 on a 600Mhz iBook and it just blows other browsers out of the water. If Safari adds tabs it might have a contender though.

            I dragged Internet Exploder to the trash the first time I powered up my iBook.

            The only thing Chimera is missing by default is image blocking, but you can add that functionality to 0.6 by following this hint here (, which gives you an image blocking preference pane that you can copy urls into to block image servers.

            Chimera 0.6
            I've been using Chimera 0.6 for a while on a G4PB OS X 10.2.3. I LOVE IT. Now running the 12/20 nightly build and love it even more. I recently had the tedious experience of once more using IE on a windows machine and re-discovered the folly of using half a screen for extraneous toolbars! The tab bookmarks are sheer genius. I just wonder what Chimera 1.0 will be like? This is what I look for in a browser, simple, fast, easy to use. Did I mention the tab bookmarks?
