    We had a New Year’s resolution to work smart and hard to deliver a better Opera for computers to our millions of users. It is already the end of January, and we are sticking to this commitment. Navigation bar Since the very moment we introduced visual bookmarks, we wanted to improve the navigation between Speed Dial, bookmarks and the Discover feature. We have played with many concepts, and today’s released navigation bar is the best option. You always know where you are, it gives you more space at the top of the window, and you can use the background of your choice without the previous…

    The stabilization of Opera 28 is now underway, meaning that all new features and major changes will be going into Opera 29. In this build we have fixed the most common crashers and we have updated Chromium. We think this build is getting close to beta quality, though there are a few more issues with the address bar that need to be fixed first. Thanks for testing and please let us know what else needs our attention, to get Opera 28 up to beta standard.

    Earlier this year, I had the chance to speak at Fluent in San Francisco, and at State of the Browser in London. At both events, I talked about various new CSS features that have become available in mobile browsers and allow you to create compelling responsive designs. The topics I covered in these talks included: device adaptation aka @viewport resolution media queries object-fit & object-position viewport-percentage lengths In the introduction to both presentations, I also went for a short trip down memory lane, and talked about the fascinating work of Karl Gerstner, a Swiss graphic…

    15 Dec 2014 | 3:00 pm
    Recently, the Opera Web Technology team attended BlinkOn 3, the twice-yearly conference for Blink contributors. (Videos are available on YouTube.) As you may know, Opera is a prolific committer to Blink, and has the only non-Google API owner and Chromium Security Group members. Here are a few notes and observations from our team. Mobile first? A year ago, a “mobile first” policy was formed. Now that has been replaced by a policy about enabling web developers to do whatever they want. Part of that is to keep landing new APIs that give more and more access to hardware/OS features and to…

If you encountered this problem, you can use the Opera developer for Mac network installer to upgrade (autoupdate from the broken build will not work).

Secondly, we continue to add more “vibrancy” to the drop downs for our MacOS X 10.10 (Yosemite) users. The address field drop down has just been updated as well.

    The weather in Oslo is pretty disappointing at the moment. There is so much ice that one of my colleagues took two hours to get home last night (a journey that usually takes 35 minutes) and another got stranded near the office because she feared walking further would result in her breaking a leg. For my own part, I had to take the bus this morning, rather than enjoy a nice unicycle commute. We need cheering up and what better way to do so, than to put out a 28 developer build to gather some positive feedback! Today’s build includes an upgraded Chromium (41.0.2251.0), some bookmark…

    Hey Everyone, I spent a few minutes a week over the last month or two working on compiling a list of Release Engineering work areas. Included in that list is identifying which repositories we “own” and work in, as well as where these repositories are mirrored. (We have copies in hg.m.o git.m.o and github, some exclusively in their home). While we transition to a more uniform and modern design style and philosphy. My major takeaway here is we have A LOT of things that we do. (this list is explicitly excluding repositories that are obsolete and unused) So without further ado, I present our…

They’ll find activity kits, trainings, badges, the Web Literacy Map, and more. It will also be an online clubhouse for Webmaker Clubs, and will showcase the work of Hives to the broader network. Our vision for the site is that it will provide pathways for sustained involvement in teaching the Web.

    For pure Shits and Giggles™ I put up a form yesterday asking people where I should try to work now that I left Mozilla. By no means I have approached all the companies I listed (hence an “other” option). I just wanted to see what people see me as and where I could do some good work. Of course, some of the answers disagreed and made a lot of assumptions: Your ego knows no bounds. Putting companies that have already turned you down is very special behavior. This is utterly true. I applied at Yahoo in 1997 and didn’t get the job. I then worked at Yahoo for almost five years a few years…
