Chroma is a lightweight AOSP ROM focused on battery, performance and stability.
The philosophy of Chroma is to stay relatively close to Google's stock Marshmallow with the additions of essential features that should have been included with stock Marshmallow as well as providing the most up-to-date security patches.

Brightness Control (long press status bar to change brightness)
Double-tap status bar to turn screen off
Show/hide notification count
Quick pull-down on left/right side to pull down tiles
Network traffic
Pressing on clock or date on status bar opens up Clock, Calendar
Status bar weather
Show/hide brightness slider

Navigation bar customization
Navigation bar height
Kill app back button
Double tap navigation bar to sleep
Clear all recents button (swipe down on recent apps and it'll display on the bottom right)

Lock screen customization
Lock screen wallpaper
Power menu customization (power off, reboot, screenshot, airplane mode)
Advanced Reboot (reboot/soft reboot/recovery/bootloader)

Volume rocker customization:
Wake device with volume keys when screen off
Long press volume up/down keys to skip track when screen off

Other:
A large number of optimizations, memory leak fixes, security patches
Long press recents to swap back to previous app
Prevent camera shutter sound
... and more (see changelog)

I tested the build Today (syko posted one few hours ago), feels good, works good, all important settings available, layer on board, well done. Only color profiles doesn't stick but i will take a look what's the problem,maybe only for me.

Color profiles on the kernel? If you're using Franco kernel, be sure to toggle on the set on boot switch to have it remain there after boot.
