Chimera Renamed to Camino

Monday March 3rd, 2003

The Mozilla-based Chimera browser for Mac OS X has been renamed to Camino™. This change was made for legal reasons involving the existence of an older, unrelated browser for UNIX-based systems called Chimera. Camino 0.7 will be released shortly.

"Is the legal wicket that sticky that you can't even mention C*****a?"

Chimera is actually mentioned at the bottom of the Camino page <http://www.mozilla.org/pr…requently_asked_questions>

"It's funny that the home page has attempted to erase all existence of Chimera, even to the point of talking about the release of 0.6 Camino. What? There's no such thing. It was and is called Chimera."

I think they just did a global Search and Replace.
