'''Chameleon''' is an open-source [[Extensible Firmware Interface|EFI]] [[bootloader]] project for [[BIOS]]-based [[x86]] systems. It is designed to replace [[Darwin (operating system)|Darwin]] and [[PC_EFI]] bootloaders with new features, such as [[GRUB]] and Windows Bootloader compatibility. Chameleon is often used as the bootloader for computers running [[OSX86]]. (Computers running OSx86 are often called "Hackintoshes".)

Chameleon is combination of various boot loader components. It is based on David Elliott's fake EFI implementation added to Apple's [[boot-132]] project.

Chameleon currently uses a text based interface like most bootloaders. The next version of Chameleon, 2.0, is going to have a GUI with support for true 24-bit PNG image files, with transparency support. Currently, a release candidate of the version 2.0 is available for download by anyone on the official website.
