    I like it.. it's got ICQ and AOL irritant messenger built right in. however the favorites bar to the left keeps popping up on it's own every once in a while... probably a bug they'll fix by the time the real version comes out.

    I haven't noticed any design issues... web design that is, but i haven't tested it extensively.

    I've had a couple of CSS issues that were different in 6.x come up. I'm reworking that document, so I'll see if it's the document, or the program. Also - this may just be me - any and all pop-ups seem to be erratic in where they will be. I have yet to test XML/XSLT function... that's next on my list.

    so far, I like the speed on rendering though.

    Urgh, too much clutter...

    Took me ages to get the damn thing to work, it crashed on me everytime, until one time it stayed open long enough for me to cancel the screen name login malarky...

    Personally i'm waiting for Chimera to go 1.0

    you'll be waiting a while. the main coder for chimera has gone on a sabbatical, of sorts. no builds for at least a month or so

    chimera 0.27 is a sweet browser, just wish the preferences were all finished.

    lol. it even says "all of the rumors" on the site. guess I read a rumor. glad it's out.

    well that, and the rumor that Apple is thinking of branding this browser with it's own name. imagine that!

    Some real funding behind this project could see it take off, and if apple kept it open source....ooohh
