    Today, we released another update to Opera 26 on our development stream. The biggest change is an update to Chromium (39.0.2171.2). On the UI side, there are no major changes. We are applying the finishing touches to move version 26 to the beta stream. This also means that 27 is on its way! The Chromium update may have a knock-on effect for some Linux users who wish to play patent-encumbered HTML5 audio and video (MP3/H.264). If you need some help getting these working, these notes should assist you. Known issue Mac makes unwanted noises when starting to play H.264 videos on Yosemite (this is…

    It has been a few weeks since we released our new tab-preview functionality. Initially, this feature was created to satisfy the needs of very advanced users, like those of you who read our blog. We would like to revisit how we preview tabs and how the feature is performing. To do so, we are collecting your feedback now that you’ve had some time to test it all out. Please participate in our fully anonymous survey.

    This is a quick post about the talk I had the pleasure to give at JSConf EU 2014 about the demoscene and the web platform. In this post and video, we will explore some little known JavaScript tricks, but more importantly, learn to unlearn and find creative and pragmatic solutions. The demoscene and the web The demoscene is a vast group of creatives producing real-time computer graphics & audio animations, thereby pushing the technical and artistic limits of the platform — any platform, really. Developing such animations involves a lot of tricks and is a great exercise to make the most…

    tl;dr; It's not a competition! I'm just comparing Go and Python. So I can learn Go. So recently I've been trying to learn Go. It's a modern programming language that started at Google but has very little to do with Google except that some of its core contributors are staff at Google. The true strength of Go is that it's succinct and minimalistic and fast. It's not a scripting language like Python or Ruby but lots of people write scripts with it. It's growing in popularity with systems people but web developers like me have started to pay attention too. The…

    Opera 25 (based on Chromium 38) 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. The <picture> HTML element Yes, <picture> is now available in Opera (and Chrome) by default! This new HTML element can be wrapped around any good ol’ <img> element to enable art direction, different images types, high-DPI images, changing image sizes, and more.

  • Opera Mini on your Chromebook for fun and bandwidth

    Opera Mini running on a Chromebook Opera Mini installing on Chrome OS This summer Google previewed a way to run Android applications on Chromebooks using ARC — App Runtime for Chrome. At this time there are only a handful of applications that work on Chrome OS through official channels. However, there are tools and workarounds that allow users to run their favorite Android applications on Chromebooks. One of the applications that works well on Chrome OS is the Opera Mini browser. It might sound a bit insane at first — why would you want to run a browser inside of a browser? Beside the…
  • CSS: It was twenty years ago today — an interview with Håkon Wium Lie

    Opera’s CTO Håkon Wium Lie Twenty years ago today, Opera’s CTO Håkon Wium Lie published Cascading HTML style sheets – a proposal. If Paul McCartney were a web developer, and writing ‘Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ today, he would almost certainly write: It was twenty years ago today That Håkon wrote a doc to say That if the Web’s gonna last a while Then we need a way to define style. So may I introduce to you a way to add visual treats: It’s Sergeant Håkon’s Cascading Style Sheets! However, when we went round to Paul’s house to ask him to sing this for us,…
  • Better with Font Load Events

    Zach Leatherman
    25 Sep 2014 | 3:00 pm
    @font-face is an established staple in the diet of almost half of the web. According to the HTTP Archive, 47% of web sites make a request for at least one custom web font. What does this mean for a casual browser of the web? In this article, I make the argument that current implementations of @font-face are actually harmful to the performance and usability of the web. These problems are exacerbated by the fact that developers have started using @font-face for two completely different use cases: content fonts and icon fonts, which should be handled differently. But there is hope. We can make…

    Today, we have an interesting new build for those of you following the developer stream. New features include: a tab list menu, print previews, and more data import options. View your tabs as a list Our tab menu provides an alternative way to view your tabs, showing them as a list to the right of your screen. If you keep many tabs open, this should help you find the tab you’re looking for or decide where you want to go next. Now: Page titles are easier to read when many tabs are open. The tab menu is keyboard-accessible. For instance, use Ctrl+K (⌘+K on Mac) to open the menu, the arrow…
  • Visual bookmarks in Opera 25 for computers

    15 Oct 2014 | 6:30 am
    When I think back on moments, I can see them. That’s my way to remember. It’s the same for how I find things on the internet. All those videos, pictures or songs that I’ve discovered are visual memories for me. Today, we introduce a new feature to Opera. A feature I’m personally very excited about. It’s bookmarks, but with a twist. Here’s the twist: Visual bookmarks Bookmarks in other browsers save website addresses – you can organize them in folders, and you can edit the titles. That’s easy. But, making it look good too is what we do at Opera. And, this is how it looks:…
  • FAQ about Opera syncing

    9 Oct 2014 | 6:19 am
    We have no release today. Instead, here is a quick follow up to previous developer release, which prompted quite a few questions. Frequently Asked Questions Where is synced data stored? All synced data is stored on Opera-controlled servers. What data is synced? At this stage we are only syncing bookmarks. In the future, it is likely that we will sync further information. As many of you have already noticed, we have a flag to synchronize open tabs (currently disabled by default). Are my synced bookmarks encrypted? Everything is encrypted in transit between client and server. However, non-login…

This for me is how I show up with integrity both for myself and the commitments I make to others. So, I enjoy evolving and living my practice Each day I meditate, as close to waking and certainly before my first meeting. I get clear on what is coming up that day and how I want to show up for myself and the people I’m spending time with.

  • Tarek Ziade: Web Application Firewall

    Web Application Firewall (WAF) applied to HTTP web services is an interesting concept. It basically consists of extracting from a web app a set of rules that describes how the endpoints should be used. Then a Firewall proxy can enforce those rules on incoming requests. Le't say you have a search api where you want to validate that: there's a optional before field that has to be a datetime you want to limit the number of calls per user per minute to 10 you want to reject with a 405 any call that uses another HTTP method than GET Such a rule could look like this: "/search":…
