    Good news, everyone! The future of Opera bookmarks arrives to our freshly renamed Opera beta channel (formerly known as Opera Next). With Opera beta 25 we introduce a new way to experience bookmarks. Instead of just marking the page you can choose an image to go with it. With Opera bookmarks you are collecting “things” not just “links”. Bookmarks Here is how it works: Find something awesome on the internet. Like a recipe for Blackberry Frozen Yogurt Cake, Yum!

    Opera 24 (based on Chromium 37) for Mac and Windows is out! For users, it includes tab preview, better hi-res support and more obvious Private Tabs. Here’s what the new release means for web developers. Improved font rendering On Windows, Opera now uses DirectWrite instead of GDI whenever possible. This results in much better rendering of OpenType (*.otf) fonts. (Note that font rendering on OS X and Linux was great already, and is not affected by this change.) Here’s a nice blog post with comparison screenshots of when this change was made in Mozilla’s rendering engine. Subpixel font…

    Back in Cambodia this week to participate in Barcamp Phnom Penh 2014. It is great to experience the energy and openness of Phnom Penh and the Cambodian youth's insatiable zeal to learn all things tech. Over the past few years, the barcamps helped us build the Mozilla community in Cambodia.Cambodia is a fast growing economy in the region. One survey notes significant increase in smart phone ownership from last year. And also increase in Khmer supported smart phones and feature phone in the market. At Barcamp Phnom Penh I presented a Firefox OS talk about the on-going Khmer…

  • Native Responsive Images

    Yoav Weiss
    18 Aug 2014 | 3:00 pm
    How It All Began Our story starts in ancient times, when WURFLs roamed the wilderness, and mobile-only websites were a thing. In these times, a developer that wanted to provide access to his website to mobile users created a simpler, dumbed down version of the “real” website, and served that based on UA detection. As you surely know, the proliferation of devices with numerous viewport dimensions and many different capabilities called out for a better way to target mobile (and not-so-mobile) users. Responsive Web Design combined new browser capabilities and CSS techniques to create…
  • Web Notifications in Opera Developer 25

    7 Aug 2014 | 3:00 pm
    You might have noticed that Opera Developer 25 has support for Web Notifications. Now, Web Notifications was already there in the Chromium project for quite some time, so why did it take us time to add it? Well, the way Chromium deals with notifications makes it seem non-native in certain platforms — we wanted to make it feel native on all our platforms, and we worked on it to make it happen. So the notifications you have on Opera will feel like native notifications (i.e., however your operating system displays notifications — whichever your platform is). We believe this is a much better…
  • Responsive Images: Use Cases and Documented Code Snippets to Get You Started

    Andreas Bovens
    21 Jul 2014 | 3:00 pm
    Introduction Finally, true responsive images are becoming a reality on the web — in pure HTML, without convoluted hacks. The <picture> element and a couple of new attributes for the <img> element are behind a flag in Chromium 37 and shipping in Chromium 38 (so coming soon in Opera), in Firefox Nightly and are being implemented in WebKit (although it remains to be seen if Apple will ship it in the next version of Safari). The new <picture> element can be verbose and confusing, because it solves a range of use cases. To help you match your requirements to the responsive…

    Opera 23 (based on Chromium 36) for Mac and Windows is out! To find out what’s new for consumers, see our Desktop Team blog. Here’s what it means for web developers. WOFF2 web fonts Contrary to other web font formats, the new WOFF 2.0 Web Font compression format is optimized for file size, memory usage, and decompression speed. To start enjoying these performance benefits, convert your existing web font to WOFF2, make sure your server is configured correctly, and add a single line to the @font-face declaration rule set, like so: @font-face { font-family: MyAwesomeFont; src:…

    Today we released an update to Opera developer 25. It contains a set of fixes, but the most important one is an update to Chromium 38.0.2125.8. You will find more details in the changelog. Discover games! Just in time for the autumn avalanche of new game releases, Opera’s Discover feature has added a Gaming category. With so many new games coming out at once, there is a fairly good chance you’ll discover a gem you might otherwise have overlooked. The new category is not yet available in all regions, but you can test it out in the U.S., Global, and 18 other regions. You can select just the…

  • Tab previews help you find tabs faster in Opera 24

    Thorben Bochenek
    2 Sep 2014 | 1:00 am
    Tabs are so handy and easy to open that we sometimes end up opening too many of them – so many that we don’t know which one is which. If you’ve had this experience and could use a little help with identifying your open tabs, we have awesome news for you. “Peek” into other tabs without losing focus with tab previews. Anything new on Twitter?! But, even if you are not using many tabs, previews can still come in handy. Do you want to check if something’s new on Facebook quickly, without losing focus on what you are actually doing? The previews are big enough to…

    We released another update to Opera developer 25. We’ve been busy, so this release comes with a bunch of fixes. A complete list of changes can be found in the changelog. PDF viewer Opera can now open PDF documents without the need to install and run any third-party plug-ins. Now, clicking links on pages that deviously lead to PDF documents won’t disrupt your workflow, as your focus will remain in the same window. Opera’s PDF solution is based on Chromium’s PDFium. If you prefer to stay with your current viewer, that’s no problem at all. Opera’s solution will be used only if there…

The bad news? It won’t open for quite a […]

Now, it looks like the software giant has some explaining to do (or the OEM) as the long awaited HP’s Stream laptop will cost a whopping $100 more. Correction: Not all hope is […]

It looks like Opera has started experimenting with the 64 bit builds (at least for Macs) as the latest developer preview build is finally available in both x86 and x86-64 flavors. In addition to that, the H.264 video is now also enabled on Mac (OS X 10.9 […]

  • William Lachance: mozregression 0.24

    15 Sep 2014 | 3:02 pm
    I just released mozregression 0.24. This would be a good time to note some of the user-visible fixes / additions that have gone in recently: Thanks to Sam Garrett, you can now specify a different branch other than inbound to get finer grained regression ranges from. E.g. if you’re pretty sure a regression occurred on fx-team, you can do something like: mozregression --inbound-branch fx-team -g 2014-09-13 -b 2014-09-14 Fixed a bug where we could get an incorrect regression range (bug 1059856). Unfortunately the root cause of the bug is still open (it’s a bit tricky to match mozilla-central…
  • Chris Riley: FCC Reply Comments on Net Neutrality

    Today is the final deadline to file comments as part of the Federal Communications Commission’s open proceeding on net neutrality in the United States. The show of support for real net neutrality over the past six months has been tremendous – so much so that this issue has now received more public comments than any other in FCC history, nearly 1.5 million in total. Mozilla has been pulling out all the stops as well. In May, we submitted an original petition to the FCC to propose a new path forward on the difficult question of authority, and to shake up a debate that had not seen many new…

    You may notice that I’m posting this on Monday instead of Friday (despite what the title says). Last week was a bit of a mess; I had a little bit of a surprise on Wednesday that involved my being taken to the hospital by ambulance (no lights and siren — it wasn’t that big a surprise), and that kept me away from work for most of the rest of the week. I’m feeling fine now, although there’s some follow-up medical testing to do to check things out. Anyway! On to the important stuff!
