    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…

    Another round of improvements is coming to our Next channel. This build includes Chromium updated to version 37.0.2062.94 and a couple of bug fixes. Warnings for unresponsive plugins were often mentioned in the comments as a source of annoyance in the previous build, so we changed the timing and now they should appear less frequently. Let us know in the comments if it works better now. More details available in the full changelog.

    Shahin Farshchi wrote a piece for IEEE Spectrum, the flagship magazine of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, on “Five Myths and Facts About Robotics Technology Today”. In the article he states: “Robots are intended to eliminate jobs: MYTH – Almost every major manufacturing and logistics company I’ve spoken to looks to robotics as a means to improve the efficiency of its operations and the quality of life of its existing workers. So human workers continue to be a key part of the business when it comes to robotics. In fact, workers should view robots as how skilled…

  • Web Notifications in Opera Developer 25

    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…

    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:…
  • Responsive Images: Use Cases and Documented Code Snippets to Get You Started

    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…
  • 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…

    Today, we released an update to Opera Developer 25, and we have a little present. For many of you, it is not actually a big surprise that we are working on a bookmark manager. But, in this release, the bookmark flag is enabled by default. Furthermore, this update comes with many fixes for things like MP3, H.264, HiDPI and more. As always, a complete list of changes can be found in the changelog. Bookmarks First, take a look at the main Opera menu. You’ll find a new item there – Bookmarks.

  • Kevin Ngo: Testing Project Browserify Modules in Karma Test Runner with Gulp

    Kevin Ngo
    30 Aug 2014 | 5:00 pm
    If you want to test local Browserify modules in your project with Karma, you'll have to take an extra step. One solution is to use karma-browserify that bundles your modules with your tests, but it has downfalls requiring files that require other files. That really sucks since we'll often be unit testing local modules that depend on at least one other module, and thus it'd only be useful for like requiring simple NPM modules. Another solution uses Gulp to manually build a test bundle and put it on the project JS root path such that local modules can be resolved. Here is the…
  • Patrick Cloke: Adding an Auxiliary Audio Input to a 2005 Subaru Outback

    30 Aug 2014 | 2:34 pm
    I own a 2005 (fourth generation) Subaru Outback, I’ve had it since the fall of 2006 and it has been great. I have a little over 100,000 miles and do not plan to sell it anytime soon. There is one thing that just kills me though. You cannot (easily [1]) change the radio in it…and it is just old enough [2] to have neigher BlueTooth nor an auxiliary audio input. I’ve been carrying around a book of CDs with me for the past 8 years. I decided it was time to change that. I knew that it was possible to "modify" the radio to accept an auxiliary input, but it involved always playing…
  • Chris: Open Badges and JSON-LD

    Chris
    30 Aug 2014 | 4:34 am
    The BA standard working group has had adding extensions to the OB assertion specification high on its roadmap this summer. We agreed that before we could add an extension to an assertion or Badge Class, we needed to add machine readable schema definitions for the 1.0 standard. We experimented with JSON-Schema, then JSON-LD. JSON-LD isn’t a schema validator, it’s much more. It builds linked data semantics on the JSON specification. JSON-LD adds several key features to JSON, most of which you can play around with in the JSON-LD node module. Add semantic data to a JSON structure, link the…

    This week I’ve been: Surviving while being home alone. The rest of my family flew down to Devon (it’s quicker/easier than driving) to visit the in-laws. Working on lots of stuff around the house. There are no plants left in my garden, for example. We decided that we want to start from ‘ground zero’ so I went on a bit of a mission. Suffering after launching myself into the week too hard. I’d done half of the things I wanted to do all week by Tuesday morning. By Wednesday I was a bit burnt out. Writing blog posts: Scaffolding Web Literacy Through Learning Pathways [DMLcentral]…
