Enables fast HTTP pipelining.

Overview

SpeedChimera enhances Chimera by allowing you to accelerate navigation (using HTTP pipelining) and enable/modify many other hidden preferences in Chimera. Unlike some other tools, SpeedChimera applies your modifications such that they stay, and continually keeps the preferences updated, regardless of whether or not you download new versions of Chimera.

For advanced users, SpeedChimera also offers you the option of seeing the current preferences and tweaking certain defaults, editing current preferences, or adding new user preferences.

With SpeedChimera you can:
  • Enhance speed with HTTP pipelining
  • Disable blinking text
  • Block certain images
  • Turn off auto-complete
  • Enable the marquee tag
  • Show history in the side bar
  • Restrict minimum font size
  • Modify tab focusing
  • Configure image animation
  • Act as another browser to servers
  • And more!

Definitely speeds up Chimera browsing, on an anecdotal basis, making the fastest OS X browser even faster.

SpeedChimera hosed my copy of Chimera... and the developer has NOT been helpful to me in a timely fashion... I have emailed him for help in restoring Chimera to its previous state and have not received help. Use this hack with caution, you are on your own should it hose you!

Does it work with normal 56kbps modem connections as well, or do you need high speed access?

Um... It actually slowed Chimera's downloads down for me... I'll stick with entering things manually in the prefs file.
