  • Working with Web Notifications using PubNub’s Realtime Data Stream

    Notifications are a great way for apps to indicate that they have something to tell you, for example, that you’ve received a new Twitter message. The W3C Web Notifications API allows your web browser to display notifications as well: it is a great way to engage with your users because these notifications can be displayed even when the page is not active — note however that the page must be opened in a background tab for the notification to be triggered. The W3C doesn’t specify how notifications should look, so Opera has chosen to use native notifications so that your browser feels…

    As you may have already seen, Mozilla is not in the list of organizations accepted for Google Summer of Code 2015.People who have observed the list carefully may have noticed that there are fewer accepted organizations this year: 137 (down from 190 in 2014 and 177 in 2013). Other organizations that have participated successfully several times are also not in the 2015 list (eg. Linux Foundation, Tor, ...).After a quick email exchange with Google last night, here is the additional information I have:not accepting Mozilla was a difficult decision for them. It is not the result of a mistake on…

  • NLHTML5 Presentation: “Bruce’s tour of the sausage factory”

    Bruce Lawson
    28 Jan 2015 | 3:00 pm
    I was invited to give a talk to the inaugural NLHTML5 meet-up in Amsterdam about how web standards have been made in the past, and how that will change in the future. Slides are available and here’s a YouTube video made by the organisers. (As this was written for an evening meet-up in Amsterdam, there may be language in it that isn’t appropriate for your workplace.) My talk was followed, chronologically and thematically, by a presentation by Robin Berjon of W3C that delves into actually how developers can contribute to making more nimble web standards: Make Forks Not War (slides), video.

    Background In early December 2014, we invited the team behind the fantastic WebRTC-powered appear.in video chat service for a 1-day workshop in Opera’s Oslo office: for about 6 hours, we sat together with engineers, designers and product people from both companies — mostly powered by good coffee and tasty pepperkake — and came up with a number of experiments using appear.in.

  • Opera 27 released

    Opera 27 (based on Chromium 40) for Mac, Windows, and Linux is out! To find out what’s new for consumers, see our Desktop Team blog. Here’s what it means for web developers. Service Workers Service Workers provide event-driven scripts that run independent of web pages. They are similar to Shared Workers except that their lifetime is different and they have access to domain-wide events such as network fetches — it’s even possible to intercept and modify navigation and resource requests. Service Workers unlock plenty of new and powerful functionality on the Web. Jake Archibald explains…

The topics I covered in these talks included: device adaptation aka @viewport resolution media queries object-fit & object-position viewport-percentage lengths In the introduction to both presentations, I also went for a short trip down memory lane, and talked about the fascinating work of Karl Gerstner, a Swiss graphic…

Open link in a new tab (Down) Open link in a new window (Shift + Down) Open link in a new background tab (Ctrl + Down or Down + Up) In case you aren’t familiar with mouse gestures, they work by holding the right mouse button, moving the mouse a certain direction, then letting go of the button. To help new users to find out more about mouse gestures, Opera now shows a sliding toolbar when performing a gesture for the first time. It explains that a…

    Today’s update includes a small (but frequently requested) tweak to how we display links to images. Previously they left aligned and now they are centered. So no more turning your head hard left, when viewing images on your wide screen monitor! Here is a screen shot to show how “perfectly balanced” the image display now is: Images that are too large for the current display will be automatically zoomed down to fit the screen. If you click on the image, the center of zooming will be where your mouse pointer was placed. As always, there is a bunch more interesting fixes and…

    Pull requests and issues filed on github are most welcome! The curl project has been around for a long time by now and we’ve been through several different version control systems. The most recent switch was when we switched to git from CVS back in 2010. We were late switchers but then we’re conservative in several regards. When we switched to git we also switched to github for the hosting, after having been self-hosted for many years before that. By using github we got a lot of services, goodies and reliable hosting at no cost. We’ve been enjoying that ever since. However, as we have…

Telemetry Mozilla has a telemetry system to get data on how Firefox behaves in the real world. We’ve added some MSE video stats to telemetry to help identify usage patterns and possible issues.

    2 Mar 2015 | 4:33 pm
    2013 was an amazing year. Which is why I’m especially proud of what we accomplished in 2014. We doubled our small dollar performance. We tripled our donor base. We met our target of 10,000 volunteer contributors. And we matched our exceptional grant performance. We also launched our first, large-scale advocacy campaign, playing a key role in the Net Neutrality victory. But best of all is that close to 100 Mozillians share the credit for pulling this off. Here’s to 2015 and to Mozilla continuing to find its voice and identity as a dynamic non-profit. A big thank you to everyone who…
