    As the temperatures in Norway and Poland start to soar to double digits, we’re pleased to release the finalized version of Opera 23 for Windows and Mac. The most visible change in Opera 23 is the heart icon in the combined search and address bar. Previously, Opera’s heart icon meant “add to Stash”. But, when we talked to users, they told us they were confused about the icons in address bar and didn’t know how to turn on the bookmarks bar. Now, click the heart and you can decide whether to add the page to Stash, the bookmarks bar or Speed Dial. If you add…

    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 behing a flag in Chromium 37 (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 image syntax, we’ve prepared…

    Did you know that the estimated cost of malware is hundreds of billions of dollars per year? Even without data loss or identity theft, the time and annoyance spent dealing with infected machines is a significant cost.Firefox 31 offers improved malware detection. Firefox has integrated Google’s Safe Browsing API for detecting phishing and malware sites since Firefox 2. In 2012 Google expanded their malware detection to include downloaded files and made it available to other browsers. I am happy to report that improved malware detection has landed in Firefox 31, and will have expanded…

  • Opera 23 released

    21 Jul 2014 | 3:00 pm
    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. CSS touch-action The touch-action CSS property is part of the Pointer Events specification. Its value determines whether touch input may trigger default browser behavior such as zooming or panning. For example, to disable all default touch behaviors on a particular element, you can now use: .foo { touch-action: none; } CSS will-change The will-change CSS property can be used to signal that a particular CSS property’s value,…
  • Installing Opera Mini on Your Computer

    16 Jul 2014 | 3:00 pm
    For development and testing purposes, it can be useful to install Opera Mini on your computer. Opera Mini is used by more than 244 million people per month, and for many of them, it’s the only way they can access the internet. However, as Opera Mini is a proxy browser with limited JavaScript functionality, it’s important you test your site in it. In a nutshell, you’ll need Java and MicroEmulator, in which you’ll run an instance of Opera Mini for J2ME-enabled feature phones. To make this as straightforward as possible, we’ve outlined all the necessary steps below. Get Java Go to the…

    Opera Mini for iOS Today, we released Opera Mini 8 for iOS. It’s a completely redesigned product that, for the first time, offers three different browser modes, two of which save time and money for the consumer — or get them connected on slow networks that other browsers can’t handle. More details for consumers are available on mobile team blog. If you’ve upgraded from the previous version, it will start in Mini mode. New installs will open in Turbo mode. The browser mode can be switched using the “O” button on the right of the toolbar. Let’s look at those three modes in more…

    Introduction If you’ve ever noticed “that flicker” in WebKit-based browsers while performing certain CSS operations, especially CSS transforms and animations, then you’ve most likely come across the term “hardware acceleration” before. The CPU, GPU, and Hardware Acceleration In a nutshell, Hardware Acceleration means that the Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) will assist your browser in rendering a page by doing some of the heavy lifting, instead of throwing it all onto the Central Processing Unit (CPU) to do. When a CSS operation is hardware-accelerated, it usually gets a speed…

  • Opera Developer 24: Important fixes for H.264, tab previews and HiDPI

    Przemek Kudła
    15 Jul 2014 | 5:01 am
    Today, we move the Developer stream to 24.0.1558.3. This time we haven’t added any new features, but we applied a few fixes to those which were presented last time. As the title suggests, we improved H.264 playback, HiDPI-display support and our new method of previewing tabs, among many more fixes. You can find the details in our changelog. Mac improvements Fixed the most frequent crashers on OS X 10.10 Yosemite. Linux improvements Fixed OpenSSL errors on non Debian-based distros (this also fixes WebRTC).

  • Opera Developer 24: Changes to tab preview and HTML5 H.264 video support

    Ruarí Ødegaard
    8 Jul 2014 | 6:14 am
    Today, we have a couple of interesting updates in this Developer build. We tweaked how the browser previews tabs, so the UI works better, feel faster and is less likely to get in the way. Additionally, this build enables H.264 support for Windows (further work will be needed before it is available for the other desktop platforms). Why we introduced the large previews The primary advantages of a large tab preview are to help visually locate a specific tab and quickly check on a dynamically updating tab’s contents (e.g., Gmail or Twitter), without losing track of the page you are…

    Talk about priorities. A battery draining bug that was first reported back in 2010 is now being investigated by Google, according to the reports. The issue stems from a poorly set system clock tick rate (1.000ms) while Microsoft themselves recommend developers to use (15.625ms). So what does that mean? It means that the processor is […]

    Another win for the consumer. Due to the constantly decreasing Chromebook prices and improving OS capabilities, it looks like Microsoft or its partners are starting to feel pressure from the search giant. So what better place to talk about the issue than at Microsoft’s WPC (Worldwide Partners Conference) 2014? And what’s exactly what they did, […]

  • Nick Cameron.: LibHoare - pre- and postconditions in Rust

    Nick Cameron.
    23 Jul 2014 | 2:13 pm
    I wrote a small macro library for writing pre- and postconditions (design by contract style) in Rust. It is called LibHoare (named after the logic and in turn Tony Hoare) and is here (along with installation instructions). It should be easy to use in your Rust programs, especially if you use Cargo. If it isn't, please let me know by filing issues on GitHub.The syntax is straightforward, you add `[#precond="predicate"]` annotations before a function where `predicate` is any Rust expression which will evaluate to a bool. You can use any variables which would be in scope where the…
  • Andrew Overholt: We held a Mozilla “bootcamp”. You won’t believe how it went!

    Andrew Overholt
    23 Jul 2014 | 1:33 pm
    For a while now a number of Mozillians have been discussing the need for some sort of technical training on Gecko and other Mozilla codebases. A few months ago, Vlad and I and a few others came up with a plan to try out a “bootcamp”-like event. We initially thought we’d have non-core developers learn from more senior developers for 4 days and had a few goals: teach people not developing Mozilla code daily about the development process expose Mozillians to areas with which they’re not familiar foster shared ownership of areas of code and tools teach people where to look in the code…

  • Doug Belshaw: Making the web simple, but not simplistic

    Doug Belshaw
    23 Jul 2014 | 7:49 am
    A couple of months ago, an experimental feature Google introduced in the ‘Canary’ build of its Chrome browser prompted a flurry of posts in the tech press. The change was to go one step further than displaying an ‘origin chip’ and do away with the URL entirely: I have to admit that when I first heard of this I was horrified – I assumed it was being done for the worst of reasons (i.e. driving more traffic to Google search). However, on reflection, I think it’s a nice example of progressive complexity. Clicking on the root name of the site reveals the URL. Otherwise, typing in the…
