    Support for themes has been there for quite a long time, but it was using JPG, PNG or other such non-animated images. However with Opera 32 and above, you have support for animated themes in which you can use a WebM video file or an animated WebP file. In the video below, you can see an example of animated themes in action. You can download the Still Lake (6 MB) & Silent Forest (10 MB) animated themes used in the video above.

  • JavaScript Open Day and Edge Conf

    Andreas Bovens, Bruce Lawson

    Last week, Bruce and I were in London for two high-profile web standards events. On Friday, Microsoft invited me to speak about installable web apps at their first JavaScript Open Day: I talked about various exciting recent additions to the web stack, such as Service Workers and device APIs, and of course also “add to Home screen”, which we’ve previewed in a labs build last week. You can find a video of my talk below. On Saturday, it was time for Edge Conference, which is a “day of group discussion and debate on advanced web technologies for developers and browser vendors.” I…
  • Installable Web Apps and Add to Home screen

    Andreas Bovens, Bruce Lawson
    23 Jun 2015 | 3:00 pm
    Today, we’re excited to release a special labs build of Opera for Android with an experimental new feature, called “Add to Home screen”, which you can find when clicking the small plus button on the left of the address bar. When a user clicks “Add to Home screen” after loading your site in Opera, a shortcut to your site is placed on the Home screen of their device, allowing for direct access and increased visibility. There is more though: “Add to Home screen” also supports the new Web Manifest spec, which means that a website added to the Home screen can be configured to open…
  • New in Opera 30: Sidebar Extensions!

    Opera 30 running sidebar extensions With Opera 30, we finally have support for sidebar extensions in the stable build! In other types of extensions, say, ones with popups, the popup window gets closed quickly, it’s cumbersome to open and close it all the time in case you use it often. There are certain types of extensions where you might want it open all the time (or at least, a lot of the time), and we’ve added support for it in the form of sidebar extensions. The sidebar is a place on the left side of the browser which has room for additional functionality for the user. The sidebar…

  • Nicholas Nethercote: A work-around for Tree Style Tab breakage on Firefox Nightly caused by mozRequestAnimationFrame removal

    Nicholas Nethercote
    27 Jul 2015 | 3:52 pm
    This post is aimed at Firefox Nightly users who also use the Tree Style Tab extension. Bug 909154 landed last week. It removed support for the prefixed mozRequestionAnimationFrame function, and broke Tree Style Tab. The GitHub repository that hosts Tree Style Tab’s code has been updated, but that has not yet made it into the latest Tree Style Tab build, which has version number 0.15.2015061300a003855. Fortunately, it’s fairly easy to modify your installed version of Tree Style Tab to fix this problem. (“Fairly easy”, at least, for the technically-minded users who run Firefox Nightly.)…
  • Chris Cooper: The changing face of buildduty, Summer 2015 edition

    Chris Cooper
    27 Jul 2015 | 3:07 pm
    Buildduty is the Mozilla release engineering (releng) equivalent of front-line support. It’s made up of a multitude of small tasks, none of which on their own are particulary complex or demanding, but taken in aggregate can amount to a lot of work. It’s also non-deterministic. One of the most important buildduty tasks is acting as information brokers during tree closures and outages, making sure sheriffs, developers, and IT staff have the information they need. When outages happen, they supercede all other work. You may have planned to get through the backlog of buildduty tasks today, but…
