We review an approach to separatrix chaos that has allowed us to solve some significant problems by: (i) finding analytically the maximum width of the chaotic layer, a problem that lay unsolved for 40 years, and showing that the maximum may be much larger than had previously been assumed; (ii) describing the drastic facilitation of the onset of global chaos between neighboring separatrices, a phenomenon discovered eight years ago.
