    Opera 29 (based on Chromium 42) for Mac, Windows, Linux and Android is out! To find out what’s new for users, see our Desktop and Mobile blogs. Here’s what it means for web developers. ES6 classes ES6 classes are syntactical sugar over the classical prototype-based inheritance pattern in JavaScript using objects and prototypes. Classes offer a much cleaner and simpler syntax for creating these objects and dealing with inheritance. Having a single convenient declarative form makes class patterns easier to use, and encourages interoperability. Opera now supports ES6 classes in strict mode,…

    Another short one this week. You can pass DOM Promises back through XPIDL XPIDL is what we use to define XPCOM interfaces in Gecko. I think we’re trying to avoid XPCOM where we can, but sometimes you have to work with pre-existing XPCOM interfaces, and, well, you’re just stuck using it unless you want to rewrite what you’re working on. What I’m working on lately is nsIProfiler, which is the interface to “SPS”, AKA the Gecko Profiler. nsIProfiler allows me to turn profiling on and off with various features, and then retrieve those profiles to send to a file, or to Cleopatra1.

  • Opera’s work to reduce Chromium’s memory use

    Bruce Lawson
    23 Apr 2015 | 3:00 pm
    In his recent blogpost marking ten years of Opera Mini, PM Christian Uribe wrote: Our vision is still the same: get the web into the hands of everyone, regardless of their device. That vision is shared throughout Opera. We know that the vast majority of the world isn’t using the latest greatest laptop or smartphone, so one of the projects that our engineers are working on is improving the memory use of Chromium processes. Blink recently established a memory team; Opera’s Sigbjørn Finne is the only non-Google member of that team. It’s important to improve both the static footprint (code…

    Introduction The Internet of Things is gaining momentum in the recent years as more embedded computing devices are being connected to the Internet. What does this mean for us web developers? This article will explore two common wireless protocols, Wi-Fi and BLE and will take you through the starting steps in connecting sensors and servo motors to the Internet. Then we will learn how to control these devices and access the sensor data using JavaScript! In this article we will explore two platforms: Spark for Wi-Fi and TI Sensor Tag for BLE with practical examples. At any time, you can also…
  • UX accessibility with aria-label

    Heydon Pickering
    8 Apr 2015 | 3:00 pm
    WAI-ARIA, the accessibility extension technology for HTML, has a reputation for being complex — if not entirely impenetrable — in its specification. How WAI-ARIA’s suite of attributes relate to one another, the underlying HTML and the circumstances under which they are set or mutated is not a trivial affair. And that’s before you try to establish the differing interaction conventions of desktop versus web applications or begin to reconcile the notion of interoperable state with your visual design process. Basically, it’s a big bum ache. An interesting and ennobling bum ache, but a…
  • Introducing a Massage API

    Andreas Bovens
    31 Mar 2015 | 3:00 pm
    A few weeks ago, Tomomi published an inspiring article about building a simple messaging service. We really liked the idea of being able to send and receive messages through a simple API, and decided to take it a step further: why not build on this API to allow people to send massages to each other, subscribe to massage channels, and so on? Indeed, as Marshall McLuhan wrote in 1967: “The medium is the massage.” So we started working on tackling this problem, and came up with the following basic API. Note that this proposal is still in an early draft stage, and mainly consists of code…

    Hi! Another developer channel update lands today. This is in fact a beginning of the stabilization process, so the list of changes is quite lenghty, as we want to fix as much as possible before switching this branch to beta. Apart from bug fixes, there is a new Chromium 43.0.2351.3 in this build. I should also highlight, that we solved the issue with infinite loading of page on Windows XP – if you were among the affected by this bug, you can safely update to this version. You can read the detailed list of changes in our changelog. Linux builds will be available in 32 and 64 bit this…
  • Opera developer 30, now available as 32-bit on Linux

    Ruarí Ødegaard
    15 Apr 2015 | 4:49 am
    Today we provide a 32-bit Linux version of our previous developer release. Sadly, there is no Linux 64-bit version this time around—some changes we originally made to accommodate the 32-bit version on our build systems, actually broke the 64-bit version. We have already fixed the issue internally, so the next release should have both 32-bit and 64-bit versions for Linux. 32-bit Linux? Why now? Back in Opera developer 24 we released the first (64-bit) Linux builds. At the time a few people were surprised that we only provided 64-bit binaries. We chose to do this because we could only afford…

We’re getting close to the end of the Opera 29 beta life-cycle, so this is hopefully our last beta build update for Opera 29. We have another update to Chromium bringing it up to version 42.0.2311.82. Make sure to also check the full list of our latests fixes in changelog. See you soon in Opera 29 Stable!

    We have a further update to Opera Developer. It includes a Chromium update (43.0.2334.0). We have also added support for MSE in conjunction with H.264 on recent versions of Mac and Windows, meaning that 60FPS H.264 videos will now play. Additionally, courgette is now used for updates on Windows, meaning even smaller updates than ever and hence more bandwidth saving. Linux build will be available in a later build, as we have experienced some internal problems and weren’t able to prepare it for you on time.

    After giving some updates on the last bug we were working on together, I started a new bug: Bug 1128050 – [e10s] Save page as… doesn’t always load from cache. The problem here is that if the user were to reach a page via a POST request, attempting to save that page from the Save Page item in the menu would result in silent failure1. Luckily, the last bug we were working on was related to this – we had a lot of context about cache keys swapped in already. The other important thing to realize is that fixing this bug is a bandage fix, or a wallpaper fix. I don’t think those are…

    The neatest thing about release engineering, is the fact that our pipeline forms the primary bridge between users and developers. On one end, we maintain the CI infrastructure that engineers rely on for thorough testing of their code, and, on the other end, we build stable releases and expose them for the public to download. Being in this position means that we have the opportunity to impact the experiences of both contributors and users by improving our systems (it also makes working on them a lot of fun).Lately, I've become very interested in improving the developer experience by…
