Until last week, I had two gripes about Chimera, but now that you can export bookmarks I’m down to one, and it is this: Chimera likes to eat form input for breakfast. Try using Chimera to type your blog entry – make it a nice long one – in Movable Type, and see what happens when you hit “save.” Notice that at least half of what you typed is gone? Yeah. That happens a lot. Not every time, mind you, just a lot.
This cropped up when I started edting the MT styles – I’d notice that the bottom half of the stylesheet suddenly disappeared on save. Or, when editing the templates, that the “Powered by Movable Type” section went AWOL. I blamed it on MT at first, but no, it’s my little baby browser that just can’t handle long text inputs reliably. Restarting seems to clear it up for a little while, but moving to IE for forms is really the only sure-fire solution. Sigh.
