Creating tab groups in Chimera via file editing Web Browsers
I really liked the grouping feature of the toolbar links in Chimera but accidentally deleted them. I couldn't modify the bookmarks file using Chimera's pref panes, so instead I went into the bookmarks.xml file in ~/Library -> Application Support -> Chimera -> Profiles -> Default -> whatever.slt -> bookmarks.xml to modify it.

After comparing this to the default XML bookmarks file in the app, I found that adding the following to each XML attribute within the 'folder=' created a clickable group of links:
Just add this to any folder to create a clickable group again. For example, to create a folder of news sites that you have named "News" into a clickable group, make the folder entry look like this:
 <folder name="News" group="true">
[Editor's note: Although it's been discussed here before, as a quick reminder, you can create groups in Chimera by first opening new tabs with each site you want as a member of the group, then (on any tab) selecting Bookmarks -> Add Page to Bookmarks, and checking the "Bookmark all tabs" box.]

It's also possible to do this in Chimera's sidebar/info window. For those with memory spans of only 3 words ;), here's instuctions:

1) Show the sidebar.
2) Select a folder.
3) Get info.
4) Check "Tab Group".
5) Close info.

For reference, I'm using Chimera Nightly 12/2 (Build ID: 2002120204).

That option doesn't exist in my build -- I tend to stick to the major release versions of anything I might be testing with...

The nightly builds are very stable and I love getting all the nice updates, like keychain support (That's not in stock v0.6, right?) and the fact that whenever I download something, it doesn't ask me where to download it anymore! (unless I hold option while clicking). Numerous other changes as well make the nightly builds much easier and better to use than stock v0.6.

And if you use ChimeraKnight, your previous version is automatically backed up, in case the nightly build is screwed up one night!
