Tested several OS X browsers:
Chimera .... white text on white background
IE 5 ... white text on dark blue background
Netscape 7 ... white text on dark blue background
Opera 6 ... black text on white backgrund.

Jalu I always advise you have at least 2 browsers installed. My default is Chimera, then Netscape (very slow but stable).

In addition:
Safari... black text on white background

And ofcourse, I have installed Chimera and Safari, I'm using Safari as my default browser... I also have Internet Explorer for those pesky IE only sites, but I hardly ever use it anymore, since Chimera is quite compatible. I haven't found out the reason why it doesn't work ok in Chimera, but there should be a new (renamed) version of Chimera soon, I'll wait for that first.

The particular performance data released by Apple for the Safari and Camino browsers have limited implications for Gecko performance for several reasons. First, the version that Apple tested, was the 0.6 release, which is built on an old version of Gecko. The Camino project began using a branch of the Gecko source almost a year ago and has not yet updated to a newer version. This means that the 0.6 does not contain a number of the performance improvements made to Gecko in the last year. The Camino team plans to move Camino to the current version of Gecko in the 0.8 timeframe, after which Camino will better demonstrate Gecko's capabilities and potential.

So there you have it! Tongue

Ouch... The brand new version of "Chimera" is called "Camino" (v.0.7)

And believe it : the same problem (white on white) appears...

It's a bit funny... It makes a new game : post a message without seeing it !!!

Read my previous post on this subject, Camino will start using an up-to-date (in stead of 1-year old) Gecko engine in the v0.8 timeframe.
