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.

The latest Opera includes the ability to open mailto: links in webmail providers Yahoo, Gmail and Hotmail.



Shamelessly stolen from the old OP:

quote:

Opera 9.51 is a free (closed-source) cross-platform web browser known for its speed, small size and large feature set. It's the latest iteration in the long-running line of the Opera browser, which traces its heritage back to 1994. Opera was one of the first (if not the first) web browsers to support tabs, mouse gestures, history search and many more features which later were co-opted by other browsers.

Some of the features Opera supports
  • Built-in personal data (read: bookmark) syncing to the web, to keep all your computers on the same page.
  • A robust, MDI-based tab system.
  • Typing into the address bar searches not just your previously typed URLs, but also the content of your previously-viewed pages.
  • Speed-dial: When opening a new tab, it defaults to showing you a grid of screenshots of your favorite pages -- just click one to go to it or, better yet, hit a num key corresponding to its position on the grid! (So '1' would be the upper-left hand corner, 9 would be the bottom right, and so on, just like a telephone.)
  • Skinnable interface, and vast support for behavior customization via the preferences menu and the opera:config magic URL.
  • Spell checker support
  • Mouse gestures -- built in support to make them much more flexible and robust than other implementations. (Seriously, try doing the reload gesture over a unfocused tab title and be amazed.)
  • A built-in RSS reader
  • And a billion more I can't list here . . .

Sounds like bloat, doesn't it? Far from it. Every one of these features can be turned off. Opera's disk footprint is smaller than basic Firefox, it's RAM profile is on par or better than FF3, and it launches and browses faster than anything based on the Gecko engine at the moment.

What Opera has going for it is a wide variety of built in features - things you would have to install an extension for in Firefox are part of Opera by default. You can see a small sample above. The other big thing is that Opera includes hundreds of little things that just make it nicer. Rocker gestures to navigate pages, keyboard shortcuts galore. There are many and more, and almost every little bit of it can be customized, from keyboard shortcuts to menus to the icons on the screen.

Opera views tabs differently from Firefox - it's much more like Chrome's tabs system. Instead of having the controls at the top and tabs right above the page, each tab becomes like its own little browser. What does this mean? Each tab has its own history and search bar. You can drag and drop tabs between windows. You can even drag a tab into blank desktop space and create a new window from it. Pop ups appear inside of the main Opera window by default, without creating a new entry in your taskbar. Basically, the only part of Chrome's process philosophy Opera lacks is the seperate process bit. Each tab acts as an independent application. It doesn't sound big, but it's one of the changes that can make a big difference.

Opera Link and Speed dial are our newest pretties, and they are amazing. Opera Link is a built in syncing function, which will store bookmarks, notes, custom searches and other similar things (except passwords) on the Opera servers. You can access them as an HTML page in any browser if you're away from home, but the real appeal is with Opera obviously. If you're using Opera on any platform, you can Synchronize Opera and it will grab all of this information and store it locally. Including Opera Mobile, so you can manage bookmarks on your home PC and download them all to your phone.

Speed Dial is like an Expose'd version of QuickLaunch. That's about the best way I can describe it. What it is is a 3x3(or more!) grid that link to whatever sites you choose. Each shows a snapshot of the page, which can be set to update at different intervals. 1-9 also correspond to ctrl+1-9 on the keyboard shortcuts, allowing for extremely quick browsing to 9 sites. What does this all realisticly mean? Every time you open a new tab, you have a search bar and up to date thumbnails of 9 pages - if you're a compulsive news checker, it's easy to see when a new story has come in. Speed Dial is also synced via Opera Link. Check out http://cybernetnews.com/2008/06/13/...ls-in-opera-95/ for more than 9.

Other things of note:

Built in adblocking! Pick a list from http://pgl.yoyo.org/adservers/ in Opera format and you have built in Content Blocking.

Built in UserJS! Yes, there are a ton of Greasemonkey scripts. Opera is compatible! Check out http://userjs.org/ for primarily Opera ones, or throw your Greasemonkey scripts in! It's all good!

Opera SALR! With the forums containing built-in last read functionality, this is more of an aesthetic script. OP, Mod, Your own, and posts quoting yours will all highlight in different colors. Check it out @ http://junk.ionmine.com/salr2/misc_...erahighlight.js

SA Menu!

Blue Moonlight posted:

Cross-posting this from the old thread. See, you can extend Opera!

Something Awful QuickMenu, v.1.9
It's here! I went through and updated every menu entry to match up with the forums index.

Where do I get this thing, anyway?
You right click on this link and save it to your cavernous hard drive.

OK, it's now in C:\Users\Naruto2000\My Documents\My Faxes\Old Faxes\Pr0n\, where do I put it?
Well, you could just leave it there, but it's making that folder even more of a lie than it already was. Depends on what crazy OS you're running.

Windows XP:
C:\Documents and Settings\$YOUR_LOGIN_NAME$\Application Data\Opera\Opera\Profile\Menu
Windows Vista:
C:\Users\$YOUR_LOGIN_NAME$\AppData\Roaming\Opera\Opera\Profile\Menu
Mac OS X:
/Users/$YOUR_LOGIN_NAME$/Library/Preferences/Opera Preferences/Menu
Unix-Based:
~/.opera/menu

If you don't already have a Menu directory, create it, then put the file you downloaded into it.

Well, now it's there, and nothing's showing up! Dammit, I'm going back to my collection of egg timer extensions on Firefox.
Hold on a sec! Go to Opera's preferences (Windows: Tools -> Preference; Mac: Opera Menu -> Preferences; *nix: Edit -> Preferences), then click the Advanced tab. Click on the Toolbars entry in the list on the side. Now, in the pane that appears, there should be a field labeled Menu Setup. Select the most recent SA QuickMenu entry listed, then click OK. A new SA menu should appear at the top of the screen.

What the gently caress is GBS doing at the bottom of the menu?
That's the Favorites section of the menu. Basically, I have it preset to GBS, A/T, and SH/SC, because those are the forums I hit the most, but don't worry, it's easy to change. Open up the INI file in your text editor of choice, and search for "CUSTOMIZED QUICKMENU ENTRIES". Below that is a list of every forum at SA. Notice that GBS, A/T, and SH/SC do not have semicolons in front of them, while every other forum has a semicolon in front of it's Item listing. Remove the semicolon in front of the Item to show the forum in the SA Menu, add a semicolon in front of the Item to hide the forum from the menu. If you're running Opera at the time, you might need to restart.


Where's Grand Theft Auto Fourum, I need to kill some whores and I don't know how!
I didn't include Grand Theft Auto Fourum and Euro 2008 because they are relatively short-term forums. RSF is included because while the topic might change, the forum ID and general name will likely stay the same.

Where's my Widgets/Feeds/Chat (wtf?)/Mail menu? Why have you killed that which I love?
Fret not, for all you need to do is open the INI file and search for "[Browser Menu Bar]" Below that (and the scary comment that says that you should only modify items that are SA QuickMenu related above it), you'll see the lines for Widgets, Feeds, Chat, and Mail all with a semicolon in front of them. Remove the semicolon for the one(s) you want.

So, what's this formatting stuff I heard about?
Well, since we don't have a fancy WYSIWYG editor here at SA, the QuickMenu remedies that somewhat. Select the text in the reply field that you wish to apply formatting to, then right-click on it. Go to SA QuickEdit, then look for the formatting you wish to apply. It's a little weird at first, but you'll get used to it.

I always forget how to insert the smiley, can you help?
Yes. Search for "SA QuickMenu Smileys Menu", then remove the semicolon from that line. Then, scroll down until you see "Item, "Smile" = Insert, " : ) "". That's your key. Duplicate the line, and change "Smile" to the name you want to appear in the menu. Change " : ) " to whatever the smiley is that you want (obviously, without a space in the middle of it). I'd highly recommend adding a space before and after to ensure that the smiley doesn't get mangled during rendering.

OK, I've got a suggestion, or a complaint, or a question, or something.
Sure, hit me up on AIM at kyle61186, via PM, or at admkyle @ gmail.com.

Enjoy everyone!

So get to it. Ask questions or post your favorite hidden feature. Anything awesome can be added to the OP.

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?

You can't integrate gmail afaik without an application like Digsby or similar.

Never seen RSS set to GReader, probably doable with a UserJS somewhere.

Really dumb question, but is Flash support a known issue with 9.6x? I fully switched over to using Opera full time, but watching any full screen video causes Flash to error. It will still play back, but not very smooth.

I'm just not sure if its something wrong with my end, or Opera. Also, I hate how it hides the URL bar when its loading a page.

Make sure you'e got the latest version of Flash 10. Other than that, it might stutter a little bit, but it should be ok. The stuttering is mostly flash being poo poo.

Opera 10.0 Alpha 1 has been released!

The news post is here.

New improvements include
  • Presto 2.2 Engine
  • Performance boost
  • 100/100 and pixel-perfect on the Acid3 test
  • Auto-update
  • Inline spelling checker
  • Opera Mail improvements, including rich text composition and delete after X days
    Widget Improvements on Linux
Inline spell-checking will probably be the big one for users in this one (plus the performance boost and auto-update, I suppose.)

Honestly, I'd be happy if they just instituted a feature freeze for one major version and just concentrated on bug fixes. Ever since 9.0 it seems there have been a pile of bugs that just accrue with every version and never get fixed. Things like pages that never finish loading, icons that go missing, random freezes, etc. all make using Opera slightly annoying these days. If things keep going like they're going, I may jump ship to Firefox. Again.

But I do love Opera so

I still don't understand exactly what it's supposed to do.

Say you're scrolling down a page with page down. It goes one screens height at a time, right? Let's say there are 3.5 screen heights on the page. You start on 1, press it once and you're now on 2. Press it again, you hit 3. There's only half a page left though, so you can only go down half a page. What it does is show a bar where the bottom of the last "page" was, the bottom of your old view.

Why is it that people don't know how to not double post? Hit submit once, and if it doesn't do anything, hit refresh and it will probably be there. This isn't directed at you specifically, since you're obviously having recurring problems here, but generally speaking, browsers hang every once in a while, it happens. That poo poo reminds me of people that double click everything, including things like hyperlinks.

I tried changing these by hitting F12, d (Quick Preferences, Edit Site Preferences) moving to Network, then changing the browser identification there.

Edit: I remember I used to have this type of problem with transparent pngs in one of the older versions of Opera, but the images in that screenshot aren't .png

You said you tried it on 9.62, 9.63 and 10.0, which is what he was talking about. And no, it doesn't delete EVERYTHING, such as your preferences, which is what's stored in %appdata%. Uninstall Opera, go to %appdata% and rename the Opera folder to something else, reinstall Opera and see if it's still a problem.

Just as a weird point: I have never had problems with Checkout.

I have had bizarre, transient eBay and PayPal problems though.

As far as Gmail goes, if you use gmail and multiple addresses, Firefox and Gmail Manager make Gmail so much more useful. And Firefox never has those weird eBay and Paypal problems.

SO I have taken to just having ebay, Paypal and GMail open in Firefox all the time, along with the two or three commercial sites, and the banking sites that hate Opera.

Still waiting for the Opera PC feature of forcing everything to open as tabs to make it to the Mac though. I love that on the PC, and I hate it on the Mac. Writing six different letters from my primary Gmail account is a breeze on the PC, and hard/impossible on the Mac, since GMail spawns six new windows on the Opera Mac.

Gmail runs more or less fine, but I rarely type out and send outgoing email from my personal account, so the double spacing bit doesn't bug me. I also tend to double space anything I type anyway.

eBay and Paypal have been good for me usually, the only times I open anything else are for Offline Gmail on my AAO and Quake Live in IE.

Who's not to say that it's a false positive.

Well, it's server based, so if sm8000 isn't receiving the warning, it's because he disabled security checks. Or that once you click through once, it lets you throw every time after that without the warning.

It's also outsourced so HauteSecure, who I've never heard of but a quick google reveals some results. Maybe it is a false positive, but that's probably easier to find out for sure from the official forums or something. It's not popping up in IE or Chrome with a warning, so I'm more inclined to think it might be a false positive, but it's not like your browser is doing anything beside comparing against a database.

How would I have disabled security checks? Where do you go to do that?

EDIT: Know what?

http://www.lulu.com gives me no warning

http://lulu.com does give me a warning.

(I simply type lulu in the address bar, then Ctrl+Enter)

And when I click Ignore This Warning, I get taken to the 'www' URL.

Security function of Advanced Preferences, the Fraud Protection checkbox.

Lulu.com brings up fraud while https://www.lulu.com doesn't, but if you check the Ignore this Warning link, it's pointing to just lulu.com.

Not sure why it's like this. But it seems to be working to me.
