Chimera

[Original Link] This is being posted with Chimera – a new Mozilla-based browser for Mac OS X. It’s still only an alpha release and has crashed a couple of times for me, but it’s impressive none the less. In particular, it’s very fast, and very pretty; the latter not being something I normally associate with Mozilla. The font rendering is quite superb, making good use of OS X’s facilities. I’ve also successfully used it to check both of my online banking accounts, a test which often beats many new browsers. In the long run, I suspect Mozilla may be more important as a base on which people build custom platform-specific browsers than as an application in its own right.
