Enable hover-underlined links in Chimera Web Browsers
To create hover underline links in Chimera, create a file called userContent.css in ~/Library -> Application Support -> Chimera -> Profiles -> default -> !random! -> chrome/. In the file, you can put in any number of CSS commands. To enable hover underline links add the following:
  A { text-decoration:none; }
A:hover { text-decoration:underline; }

[Editor's note: Since there are literally hundreds of CSS commands you can use to create your own customized browsing experience, I could literally run customized CSS file hints forever ... but I won't, as that's not what the site is about! So consider this hint as a jumping-off point for further CSS file exploration; what you learn from here on is up to you. I won't run many other hints regarding customizing CSS files, as the scope is just too broad, and there are many other hint topics to cover...]

I've used a user style sheet for ages in MSIE 5, and now in Chimera. The following will make everything much more readable (If you're only using MSIE, you just need the first css statement).

/* make stuff easy and fun to read */
body { line-height: 1.5; }

/* but don't let form elements get too fat in Mozilla */
select, input { line-height: normal; }

In ‘quirks mode' Mozilla (and Chimera) emulates the broken
inheritance model of Netscape 4. This restores standards-
compliant behaviour, so that my line-height rule works in
table layouts.

information about Mozilla's quirks mode stylesheet:
table, caption {
font-size: inherit;
font-weight: inherit;
font-style: inherit;
font-variant: inherit;
table {
text-align: inherit;
white-space: inherit;
line-height: inherit;

Whoops. Don't enter the "</pre>" at the end. That was left-over from my editing this before posting.
