Nice job. I'm too lazy to do it myself.

Could you linkify "UserJS" with http://www.opera.com/support/tutorials/userjs/?

Does anyone know a way to circumvent Opera's proprietary behaviour, when it comes to mail and RSS; i.e.: Is there a way to integrate Gmail (in a non-POP3 manner) and direct me towards my Greader, when I go to RSS feeds - Feedburner ones in particular?

I had not thought of this before, even though I read this already and learned some tips on how to get opera to like the forums here more. But it just occured to me that I should ask here: how can I make the spoiler tags work, for me they show the text in white with a black background. No spoilering action here.

Little help?
Are you experiencing the problems "vanilla" (i.e. out of the box) or after applying some coding magic?

I used the beta for a couple weeks on my laptop during the holiday and didn't run into any issues at all, which is drat good for an alpha. Has anyone found any real reason not to just start using 10.x series now?
Overall it's doing fine, but I'm experiencing some pictures being mixed (odd smilies replacing the Quote button on SA for instance), and some particular reproducible instances, where Opera freezes and crashes. As for the crashes, you're in the clear if you don't use DeviantArt, and as for the smilies, I have no clue what's causing it; I'm using an urlfilter, so I'm not going to blame Opera solely based on that.

Aside from that it's perfect - despite being in alpha fase it's doing great.

Opera 9.62 / 9.63 / 10 all seem to be giving me an odd issue with some transparent gifs. I haven't tested to see if it depends on the transparency method or color yet; I actually hope I don't have to, as I doubt any website will change every gif they have for my sake.



The images appear to be fine until the pages finish loading. Also, identifying as Opera, Firefox, or Internet Explorer doesn't make one bit of difference.

Other than that, hot drat do I miss Opera. I stopped using this browser around version 6 or 7. I can't remember which one, but javascript problems finally made me move to other browsers. Those 'other browsers' are now uninstalled.
I vaguely recall having one such problem. I can't remember the solution, unfortunately, but:

You say, that you've tried the three versions. How, exactly; did you try some other versions, when you ran into the issue? And if so, did you make sure to delete all the Opera files - remembering the ones in %AppData% (at least that's the destination in Vista)?

Is there any way of changing Opera's native landing page for RSS feeds? For RSSs, I'd prefer to save them to Google Reader, and for podcasts I'd like to to at least be able to download the podcast links.

I doubt it. I think Opera looks at the XML header and not the MIME type of the page.

But what you could try is:
Ceate a new handler (Settings->Advanced->Programs) for MIME type "application/rss+xml" and associate it with the program 'http://reader.google.com/subscribe/whateverthefuck?url='
Thanks. Can't get it to work - maybe I'm doing something wrong.

The link seems to be "http://www.google.com/reader/view/feed/<feed url>". I've tried inserting it in various creative ways, but it doesn't seem to take priority over Opera's native handler.

Protocol: application/rss+xml
Program: ?

How would you go about it?

Carakan F.A.Q.

By brucelawson. Thursday, 5. February 2009, 09:47:24

Categories ECMAScript, JavaScript, Carakan

1.0 What is Carakan?

Carakan is Opera's new JavaScript engine. It's still in development, but is already 2.5 times faster than our Opera 10 alpha engine (which itself is 30% faster on real websites than previous versions of Opera). Some aspects are between 5 and 50 times faster!

2.0 Why are we developing it?

Because we can! Opera has always been about speed, security and a small memory footprint, so we're constantly improving these aspects of the browser. Many of today's web applications depend heavily on JavaScript, and we're developing what will be the fastest ECMAscript engine on the market.

3.0 When will Carakan be available?

Soon. We've chosen to talk about it now as we're discussing it at the Web Directions North conference, but we're still combing its hair and straightening its tie before we're ready to let you see it.

4.0 How does it work?

It's a combination of brilliant coding and Norwegian voodoo magic ("Snowdoo"). If you want more details about the brilliant coding, you can read all about register-based bytecode, automatic object classification and native code generation on the Opera Core Concerns Blog. We're sworn to secrecy about the Snowdoo. By a Yeti troll.

5.0 What does "Carakan" mean?

We thought about naming it "Unicorn-badger" or "Shouting Otter". But, we've chosen the name "Carakan" (pronounced "Jarakan"), which is the original alphabet from the Indonesian island of Java.

In other words, it's the purest Java Script. When you try it, you'll agree.


Linky.

It seems like all the major web browsers (except Internet Explorer obviously) are trying to write the fastest, bestest Javascript engine out there. I wonder how Carakan will measure up against the new webkit Javascript engine, or the one that'll be in Firefox that people seem to be excited about?
SquirrelFish, yep. Think that was what the UnicornBadger was a reference to, also.

Blah.
Gmail was updated yesterday or the day before (in Opera at least), resulting in my to-do list disappearing. You may not have run into a bug, but at feature.

Google are notorious for screwing Opera users over with their services. Checkout doesn't even work at all - same goes for Gmail handling going to the next line properly.

Is there a way to make links for the high quality videos pop up right away in youtube? IE and Firefox both do, but Opera waits until the whole video is loaded before it does.
You can add &fmt=22 to the link, stripping away the referral link if it's there. A workaround, but hey.

My Open in IE button or bookmarklet doesn't work. I might get why the FF won't work, as I don't have it installed, but IE ought to work. Is it because I'm using IE8?

Well, aside from a couple of their advertisers triggering Avast! flags, but that just takes a simple adblock when they show up.
Try testing their JS by going to profiles, browse galleries. Should only take a few secs for it to lock up. Front page might not brick Opera right off the bat.
