The chameleon browser is password protected to protect your privacy and prevent your children from accessing questionable material. If you have misplaced or lost your password simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will show you how to set up a new account.
What is the
Hide/Show button for? top

way to switch back and forth between the two and also functions as a

are tabs and what are they for? top

How do I
remove the buttons from the tool bar? top
The tool bar in the Chameleon
browser does not have the option to replace the icon buttons with text.
What we opted to do is allow for your window to hide the tool bar while
you surf. This maximizes the size of your browser screen. The tool bar
will reappear when you mouseover the hidden tool bar again. To operate
this feature, from the mail file menu choose "Options" and click on
"Shrink Navigation Bar".
What is the
purpose of the Ad Bar? top
The ad bar serves multi-purposes.
It is used for web sites who've helped sponsor the Chameleon browser so
that we may offer it to you for free and to show you a list of
categorized web sites that we think you'd really enjoy visiting. The ads
are specific to what mode you currently have your browser
I click on
a link and nothing happens. Why? top
The real benefit of the Chameleon
browser is that no longer will you be annoyed by unwanted pop up windows
(called consoles in web jargon) unless you choose to see them. Some
web sites use links that always opens the link in a new window. If you
have your browser settings as "Display Consoles" then you will get the
new window as well as any consoles the webmaster has placed on his site.
If you've set your browser to "Ask Before Displaying Consoles" then you
will be prompted before the window is opened. If your settings are "Do
Not Display Condoles" then you will not see the new screen because
technically, the new screen is a console. If you surf a site and see
this to be a problem, set your settings to "Display Consoles" or "Ask Me
How do I
get my Internet Explorer bookmarks into the Chameleon
We look for your Internet Explorer
favorites during the installation process. Your Internet Explorer
bookmarks will already be displayed on the browsers first use. At this
time, Netscape bookmarks can not be imported.
Do you offer a version for Macintosh? top
We hope to be able to offer Chameleon Browser for the Macintosh in the future.
We currently don't have the company resources to do it, but as more
people use the browser we will be able to hire people to start work on a
Macintosh version! We plan to support all platforms eventually.
