A browser that gets out of the way of the Web

I’ve switched browers again — from Mozilla, which I liked a lot, to Chimera, which I love. Thanks to Avi Rappaport of Searchtools.com for the excellent recommendation.
There’s not a lot to say about it, because browsers ought to be simple. It doesn’t do email, newsgroups, HTML composition, chat, addresses, or calendaring. It doesn’t have a sidebar for notifications, RSS feeds, related sites or search results. It can’t be skinned and the interface doesn’t have its own programming language.
It blocks popup ads and it has tabbed browsing, just like Mozilla. But it’s really fast, starts up right away, and it looks like a Mac application. If Netscape had introduced something like this in 1996, instead of Netscape Navigator 4.0, they might still be around.
