X/Athena World-Wide Web client - Wilbur (HTML3.2) compliant Was Maintained by:firstname.lastname@example.org Port Added: unknown License: not specified in port
Chimera is a program which allows a user to access World-Wide Web servers
and other information servers. It presents the user with a point-and-click
graphical interface using the X Window System and the Athena Widgets.
(yet at least), it *is* designed to be ``Wilbur'' (HTML v3.2) compliant,
and handles .gif, .jpg and quite a number of other image formats
internally. Yet image handling is a little odd, as compared to other
browsers. Each image is *often* surrounded by scrollbars, rather than
being resized to a specified size. Hence it makes a good visual tool
for proper sizing information.
THIS IS AN ALPHA VERSION - so don't be surprised if something doesn't
properly work OTOH, it *does* do tables and forms, and multiple windows.
Unlike version 1.65 previously distributed, it is an all-in-one binary
and depends upon X- resources settings for configuration. It may
be touchy about interrupted image fetches, or other things, as well.
Each user is expected to create a ~/.chimera subdirectory for
bookmarks and personal preferences, and a ~/.chimera/cache (which may
be a symlink to somewhere else).
Remove the chimera2 port, which has not been in active development for many
years, never made it out of alpha status and just doesn't appear to work
with the modern WWW (crashed on the first page I tried it on).
