    We have just pushed an update to Opera Stable, now ending up at the magic number of 64 (24.0.1558.64). You shouldn’t notice any change at all in this version, it contains the grand total of a single bug fix! A security flaw was discovered in one of the cryptographic libraries used by Opera 24, it is this flaw which has now been corrected. The flaw would allow an active man in the middle to take over some secure connections, depending on the certificate used.

    @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…

  • W3C20 Anniversary Symposium

    Twenty years ago, Tim Berners-Lee founded the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), an international community that develops open standards. It’s thanks to these standards and the openness and compatibility that they encompass that we can browse and view the same web pages in, say, Firefox on desktop, Chrome on a Chromebook, Internet Explorer on Windows Phone, Opera on Android and many other current and future browser-and-device combinations. To mark this anniversary, the W3C invites the web community to a cray cray bday bash 3-hour symposium on the future of the web on October 29 2014: topics…
  • Opera 24 released

    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 Windows. 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…
  • Native Responsive Images

    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

    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…

    Currently I'm in the middle of a 3-week visit to North America. Last week I was at a Mozilla graphics-team work week in Toronto. This week I'm mostly on vacation, but I'm scheduled to give a talk at MIT this Thursday about rr. This is a talk about the design of rr and how it compares to other approaches. I'll make the content of that talk available on the Web in some form as well. Next week I'm also mostly on vacation but will be in Mountain View for a couple of days for a planning meeting. Fun times!

I had been using a Flame for testing since June or so, but I kept flashing nightly builds and let me tell you… it’s risky at least. Sadly I was busy attending other matters (namely the DevTools meetup which is happening this week at the London office) so I didn’t have much of a chance to experiment on…

    For the last 3 years the council, peers and mentors of the Mozilla Reps program have been meeting annually at ReMo Camp, a 3-day meetup to check the temperature of the program and plan for the next 12 months. This year’s Camp was particularly special because for the first time, Mitchell Baker, Mark Surman and Mary Ellen Muckerman participated in it. With such a great mix of leadership both at the program level and at the organization, it was clear this ReMo Camp would be our most interesting and productive one.

    30 Sep 2014 | 8:48 am
    tldr: Data related telemetry alerts (e.g. histograms or main-thread IO) are now aggregated by medusa, which allows devs to post, view and filter alerts. The dashboard allows to subscribe to search criterias or individual metrics. As mentioned in my previous post, we recently switched to a dashboard generator, “iacomus“, to visualize the data produced by some of our periodic map-reduce jobs. Given that the dashboards gained some metadata that describes their datasets, writing a regression detection algorithm based on the iacomus data-format followed naturally. The algorithm generates a…
