How To Change, Disable Opera Speed Dial

How To Change, Disable Opera Speed Dial

The question came up here whether it is possible to disable Opera’s built-in Speed Dial feature. Speed Dial displays a number of websites or Speed Dial extensions on the browser’s new tab page. Speed Dial was initially designed as the means to quickly access popular sites right away from the new tab page without having to enter the site’s name first or select the site from the bookmarks. Other browser vendors have started to integrate similar options into their browsers...

Opera 10.61 And 10.70, The Next Opera Releases

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Opera users who follow the development of the web browser closely may have been confused by the two versions of Opera that are currently developed and offered as snapshots by the development team. Release snapshots by the Opera Desktop Team were alternating between Opera 10.70 and Opera 10.61 releases. The issue became even more confusing as build numbers did not add up on first glance. Some build numbers of Opera 10.61 releases...

Google Apps vs. Google Accounts Parity Coming

Google Apps vs. Google Accounts Parity Coming

Google Apps users who want access to all the same products that regular Google Accounts have won’t have to wait much longer. An anonymous tipster tells me a Google Trusted Tester program is underway right now, which “transitions” Google Apps accounts to full access to all GOOG products, including Voice, Reader, Buzz, Analytics, and more. Here’s the official Help page which includes a visualization of the transition, in the screenshot here. (Here’s a PDF,...

Opera 10.60 Release Candidate Released

Opera Software has just released the first release candidate of the upcoming Opera 10.60 web browser. Opera 10.60 continues where Opera 10.50 left of improving on overall web browser speed and compatibility.

Opera 10.54 Released

Not every Opera user has the cutting edge snapshots of the upcoming Opera 10.60 browser installed. The latest public version of Opera is 10.53 and users of that or an earlier version are asked to updated to Opera 10.54 immediately to close several security vulnerabilities in those Opera versions. The announcement at the Opera Desktop Team blog does not go into detail, stating that Opera 10.54 is a “recommended security update” for Mac and Windows systems. The change log for...

Opera 10.60 Beta Released, Fastest Browser Gets Even Faster

Someone must have flipped a switch over at the Opera headquarters in Norway. The developers of the popular Opera browser have accelerated development of the browser over the last months.

Opera 10.60 snapshot users can update the browser to the beta release by clicking on the menu button at the top, then Help and Check for...

Lessons from Apple on Advertising and Aesthetics

Lessons from Apple on Advertising and Aesthetics

Steve Jobs announced the iPhone 4 yesterday in his WWDC keynote, and it’s a gorgeous device with software upgrades that include multitasking, a video chat app called FaceTime, and more. I’m still a happy Android user, but I have to hand it to Apple. They continue to school the industry on aesthetics and marketing. Case in point: the FaceTime demo video. First, some background. I got a Sprint EVO at Google I/O which has a front-facing video camera, and presumably the ability...

HTML5 Test Your Web Browser

HTML5 Test Your Web Browser

Most Internet users who read about HTML5 and how it is going to change the web might think it is all about HTML5 video as the controversy surrounding it was all over the news lately. But HTML5 promises more than just a new video web standard, it introduces several new elements and attributes while getting rid of obsolete ones. There are not a lot of websites that make use of HTML5 yet. Some video portals like Youtube began to add HTML5 video as an alternative to the common Flash video...

Google Gives HTC EVO Phones to Google I/O Attendees

Google Gives HTC EVO Phones to Google I/O Attendees

Not only did Google pre-mail Droid handsets to I/O attendees, today they gave the Sprint HTC EVO 4G out to conference attendees at the Moscone Center, with a 2GB Micro SD card filled with music. Awhile back I tweeted that I wouldn’t accept “free” phones like these, since I cover Google on TWiG and at web sites and magazines where I occasionally freelance, and accepting a “gift” from a company I talk and write about so much seemed like a bad idea. But, I’m...

Stream Video With Opera Unite

Stream Video With Opera Unite

The topic of streaming video to a friend’s computer came up yesterday evening. Direct experience is often the base for excellent articles and this will hopefully make no exception. The first option that we tried was VLC Media Player which offers streaming but that did not work out that well somehow. Maybe it was because of router’s blocking ports that were needed or our basic understanding of available streaming protocols. Maybe it was because it was simply to complicated to...

What’s The Best Web Browser For HTML5 Video Playback?

What’s The Best Web Browser For HTML5 Video Playback?

You might have heard about HTML5 and specifically HTML5 Video in the news lately. How it is supposed to replace Flash based video players eventually. Some websites are already experimenting with HTML5 video players including Youtube and Dailymotion. Two standards are currently competing with each other to become the HTML5 video standard: Ogg Theora and h.264. This would not be such a big deal for computer users if most browser developer’s have not decided to support only one of the...
