Chroma is a lightweight AOSP ROM focused on battery, performance and stability.

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:

Long press volume up/down keys to skip track when screen off

Other:
A large number of optimizations, memory leak fixes, security patches

... and more (see changelog)

It's just me, Syko and some freelancing graphics from @boysetsfire. I'm doing all of the feature sets, thread maintaining and Syko is just being a build bot for devices other than the shamu (Nexus 6). @boysetsfire helps me make cool bootanimation and wallpapers

Hope the experience on mako is just as buttery smooth as the shamu variant.

Was waiting for this. Flashed today morning (I'm in India, I flashed the moment it was available ).

Thanks @sykopompos and @zephiK for this awesome ROM. It's running great.

The build is too good to be just a second build (but isn't that the thing for which @sykopompos is known ). Few glitches are there but they are manageable:
1. Can't see Home option (to select launcher) in settings
2. Wallpaper can not be changed.

Kudos!
