    It looks like Firefox just set itself on fire. When your market share keeps decreasing month over month, what can you do in order to win back at least some of the lost users? Useful new features? Performance improvements? User interface tweaks? If you have answered to any of these questions “yes” then you are […]

    Opera 29 (based on Chromium 42) for Mac, Windows, Linux and Android is out! To find out what’s new for users, see our Desktop and Mobile blogs. Here’s what it means for web developers. ES6 classes ES6 classes are syntactical sugar over the classical prototype-based inheritance pattern in JavaScript using objects and prototypes. Classes offer a much cleaner and simpler syntax for creating these objects and dealing with inheritance. Having a single convenient declarative form makes class patterns easier to use, and encourages interoperability. Opera now supports ES6 classes in strict mode,…

  • Opera’s work to reduce Chromium’s memory use

    Bruce Lawson
    23 Apr 2015 | 3:00 pm
    In his recent blogpost marking ten years of Opera Mini, PM Christian Uribe wrote: Our vision is still the same: get the web into the hands of everyone, regardless of their device. That vision is shared throughout Opera. We know that the vast majority of the world isn’t using the latest greatest laptop or smartphone, so one of the projects that our engineers are working on is improving the memory use of Chromium processes. Blink recently established a memory team; Opera’s Sigbjørn Finne is the only non-Google member of that team. It’s important to improve both the static footprint (code…

This article will explore two common wireless protocols, Wi-Fi and BLE and will take you through the starting steps in connecting sensors and servo motors to the Internet. Then we will learn how to control these devices and access the sensor data using JavaScript!

  • UX accessibility with aria-label

    Heydon Pickering
    8 Apr 2015 | 3:00 pm
    WAI-ARIA, the accessibility extension technology for HTML, has a reputation for being complex — if not entirely impenetrable — in its specification. How WAI-ARIA’s suite of attributes relate to one another, the underlying HTML and the circumstances under which they are set or mutated is not a trivial affair. And that’s before you try to establish the differing interaction conventions of desktop versus web applications or begin to reconcile the notion of interoperable state with your visual design process. Basically, it’s a big bum ache. An interesting and ennobling bum ache, but a…
  • Introducing a Massage API

    Andreas Bovens
    31 Mar 2015 | 3:00 pm
    A few weeks ago, Tomomi published an inspiring article about building a simple messaging service. We really liked the idea of being able to send and receive messages through a simple API, and decided to take it a step further: why not build on this API to allow people to send massages to each other, subscribe to massage channels, and so on? Indeed, as Marshall McLuhan wrote in 1967: “The medium is the massage.” So we started working on tackling this problem, and came up with the following basic API. Note that this proposal is still in an early draft stage, and mainly consists of code…

    Last week I went to BlinkOn 4 in Sydney, having been invited by a Google developer. It was a lot of fun and I'm glad I was able to go. A few impressions: It was good to hear talk about acting responsibly for the Web platform. My views about Google are a matter of public record, but the Blink developers I talked to have good intentions. The talks were generally good, but there wasn't as much audience interaction as I'd expected. In my experience interaction makes most talks a lot better, and the BlinkOn environment is well-suited to interaction, so I'd encourage BlinkOn…

  • Monica Chew: Firefox 32 supports Public Key Pinning

    Monica Chew
    26 Aug 2014 | 4:15 pm
    Public Key Pinning helps ensure that people are connecting to the sites they intend. Pinning allows site operators to specify which certificate authorities (CAs) issue valid certificates for them, rather than accepting any one of the hundreds of built-in root certificates that ship with Firefox. If any certificate in the verified certificate chain corresponds to one of the known good certificates, Firefox displays the lock icon as normal.Pinning helps protect users from man-in-the-middle-attacks and rogue certificate authorities. When the root cert for a pinned site does not match one of the…
