    An opera is an exquisite form of art where musicians and singers work together to create a dramatic work that combines singing, musical score and acting in a theatrical setting. Apart from these elements, some opera pieces also include dance numbers, sceneries, fascinating costumes and entire orchestras. The performances are accompanied by either a small musical ensemble or a whole orchestra. Traditionally, an opera is performed in an opera house, also known as an opera theater. These are large structures that generally feature enormous stages, seating arrangements for the audience, a grand…

    The Media Queries Level 4 Interaction Media Features — pointer, hover and the more recent any-pointer and any-hover — are meant to allow sites to implement different styles and functionality (either CSS-specific interactivity like :hover, or even JavaScript behaviours, when queried using window.matchMedia), depending on the particular characteristics of a user’s input modalities. Note: the Media Queries Level 4 Interaction Media Features are still at the Working Draft stage, so some of the wording/functionality – as well as the way in which it is implemented in browsers – may still…

    Hi! Due to the limited number of people around during Easter time, today is the last chance to share another Opera beta update with you. So, here it is. This build has updated Chromium to version 42.0.2311.60, and includes a couple of fixes. A detailed list of them is provided in the changelog. PDF reader should already work, but we are aware that internal, built-in reader takes precedence before any other plugins. This will be fixed with further updates.

  • Opera Mini server upgrade

    15 Mar 2015 | 4:00 pm
    We’ve upgraded our Opera Mini servers to a new version of our Presto rendering engine. This means that CSS Flexbox and layouts depending on rem units will now display as you expect. As you may know, Opera Mini renders pages on Opera’s servers which are then sent, in a highly compressed format, to clients on devices. This means that all users will see pages rendered using the updated Mini servers, with no need to update their software. 260 million users upgraded automatically, in one weekend. Wow. What’s new HTML5 Parser The Mini servers now use Ragnarök, our implementation of the HTML5…
  • Opera 28 released

    9 Mar 2015 | 4:00 pm
    Opera 28 (based on Chromium 41) 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. Element.prototype.closest(selector) The DOM standard defines the closest method for elements. It accepts a single selector argument, and returns the closest ancestor of the current element (or the current element itself) that matches that selector. If there isn’t such an ancestor, it returns null. See MDN for more info and examples. CSS any-pointer and any-hover media queries CSS media queries now support…
  • The State of Web Type

    2 Mar 2015 | 3:00 pm
    Typography has a long and rich history, but much has been lost in the transition to the web. While browser support for typography has advanced a lot in the last couple years, we still have a long way to go. Features print designers take for granted are either nonexistent on the web or have insufficient browser support in order to be useful. Challenges unique to web browsers such as responsive design and web font loading could use some improvement as well. Let’s take a look at some of the features we need for an optimal and beautiful reading experience. OpenType Features Typeface designers…
  • Working with Web Notifications using PubNub’s Realtime Data Stream

    23 Feb 2015 | 3:00 pm
    Notifications are a great way for apps to indicate that they have something to tell you, for example, that you’ve received a new Twitter message. The W3C Web Notifications API allows your web browser to display notifications as well: it is a great way to engage with your users because these notifications can be displayed even when the page is not active — note however that the page must be opened in a background tab for the notification to be triggered. The W3C doesn’t specify how notifications should look, so Opera has chosen to use native notifications so that your browser feels…

  • Opera Developer 30, with tab cycling and an improved tab menu

    Aneta Reluga
    31 Mar 2015 | 1:12 am
    Today, we released Opera Developer 30.0.1820.0. This build re-envisions some of the classic Opera tab behaviors. You can now cycle tabs in order of the most-recent tabs used; and, if you use Opera’s sync services, you can see your open tabs from other devices in the tab menu. A real tab cycler In Opera 15, we introduced the behavior of switching tabs from left to right in visual order across the tab bar, as is common in most other browsers. And, without a real tab cycler, it was difficult for new users to understand switching tabs by the order they were active. In Opera 24, we…

    Today Opera developer has been updated to version 30 (30.0.1812.0). For this release we will continue to work on our extension sidebar implementation (already 20 sidebar extensions have appeared). We are also working to improve the features hidden behind various flags that have yet to be enabled. As always, there will be more information on those features when we set the flags to be on. Our changelog provides a full list of fixes thus far. As always with the first release in a cycle, we have bumped Chromium by a major version (to 43.0.2327.5).

  • Chris Heilmann: Redact.js – having 60FPS across devices made simple

    Chris Heilmann
    31 Mar 2015 | 4:27 pm
    A lot of people are releasing amazing frameworks these days, so I thought I should have a go at an opinionated micro framework, too. Redact.js allows you to have really fast performing JS apps across devices and on Desktop and Mobile. The framework is only a few bytes and uses gulp to get minified and ready to use. The main trick is to avoid HTML rendering before the user interacts with it. In many cases, this is just by error as some JS wasn’t loaded. I thought, however, why not grab this opportunity? Read more about Redact.js on GitHub and download the source to use it in your own…

    At the beginning of Q1, I set a goal to investigate races with Thread Sanitizer and to fix the “top” 10 races discovered with the tool.  Ten races seemed like a conservative number; we didn’t know how many races there were, their impact, or how difficult fixing them would be.  We also weren’t sure how much participation we could count on from area experts, and it might have turned out that I would spend a significant amount of time figuring out what was going on with the races and fixing them myself. I’m happy to report that according to Bugzilla, nearly 30 of the races reported…
