  • Florian Quèze: Firefox is awesome

    "Hey, you know what? Firefox is awesome!" someone exclaimed at the other end of the coworking space a few weeks ago. This piqued my curiosity, and I moved closer to see what she was so excited about. When I saw the feature she was delighted of finding, it reminded me a similar situation several years ago. In high school, I was trying to convince a friend to switch from IE to Mozilla. The arguments about respecting web standards didn't convince him. He tried Mozilla anyway to please me, and found one feature that excited him. He had been trying to save some images from webpages,…

    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…

    Mozililla OSCON 2014 Team This past week marked my fourth year of attending O’Reilly Open Source Convention (OSCON). It was also my second year speaking at the convention. One new thing that happened this year was I co-led Mozilla’s presence during the convention from our booth to the social events and our social media campaign. Like each previous year, OSCON 2014 didn’t disappoint and it was great to have Mozilla back at the convention after not having a presence for some years. This year our presence was focused on promoting Firefox OS, Firefox Developer Tools and Firefox for Android.

  • 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…
  • Everything You Need to Know About the CSS Property

    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…

  • A heart-y cheer for Opera 23 for Windows and Mac

    22 Jul 2014 | 1:10 am
    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…

  • 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…

    Say hello to BoringSSL. After the recent Heartbleed bug paranoia, it looks like Google took a pretty significant step to minimize such risks in the future. According to the report, the search giant is replacing OpenSSL with its own BoringSSL (yes, they did call it like that) in an effort to streamline security patches and […]

First in the list is DirectWrite support, which is Microsoft’s latest text layout and glyph rendering API introduced in […]

  • Wraithan (Chris McDonald): Negativity in Talks

    Wraithan (Chris McDonald)
    26 Jul 2014 | 9:18 am
    I was at a meetup recently, and one of the organizers was giving a talk. They come across some PHP in the demo they are doing, and crack a joke about how bad PHP is. The crowd laughs and cheers along with the joke. This isn’t an isolated incident, it happens during talks or discussions all the time. That doesn’t mean it is acceptable. When I broke into the industry, my first gig was writing Perl, Java, and PHP. All of these languages have stigmas around them these days. Perl has its magic and the fact that only neckbeard sysadmins write it. Java is the ‘I just hit tab in my IDE and the…
