New Browser for OS X......Chimera!! - Page 3

post #81 of 92
This is some clean browser! It blends in OSX and has a customisable toolbar working just like the one in the file browser. (I guess/hope custom icons will be a future addition) Only the scrolling seems a tad slow, but hey, its 0.1.3, so Im not criticising.


I'll come back when its matured.

Go for it, starfleetX! Imagine that biest magnified when you scroll over it in the dock.

PS: I kinda likes this graphic for a Chimera icon:



With a little bit of massaging in GraphicConverter, it will work great in the dock.

Escher, I highly recommend giving the free app Pic2Icon a try. I have already turned some of my pictures into fabulous OS X scaling icons.

Could someone with the latest version (0.1.3) please post it on their iDisk, the Chimera website all day has been giving out about 50 bytes/sec.

Retrograde: I'll give it a try this weekend. I really think it's important for apps to develop recognizable icons, even at the alpha or beta stage.

Yes, the first thing I did, even before launching Chimera for the first time was to copy an icon to it. Unfortunately I was frustrated with its first release as it for some reason wouldn't allow an icon to be copied to it. :confused: But subsequent releases gave me no problem. I am now using one of <a href="http://www.pixeljerk.com" target="_blank">PixelJerk's</a> button icons for Chimera.

I tried to make a chimera icon 2 days ago for myself (though I sent it to Mr Hyatt too). This is an eyeball hanging in a 'C' like a globe, trying to combine 'chimera' (in terms of illusion??) and browsing the internet in one icon. However, if you like it you may download it

I'm using one of the sample icons that came with Iconographer.

I put it on my iDisk, username: quarem.

I thought something beyond 0.1.3 of Chimera would be out by now. When's 0.2 coming?

Looks better than 0.1.3, but there is still a lot left to do, like being able to download files.

I'm not sure if I like the anti-aliasing. It seems thicker then the AA used in Omniweb. I wish I had some spare time so I could help out on the Chimera/Navigator project though.
