"The Web as we know it is evolving, and we are committed to making it more accessible across diverse devices." ---Christen Krogh, Chief Development Officer, Opera Software

Opera announced that they’ll be coming up with Sony TVs and Blu-ray players. The new Opera solution will be sporting HTML 5, OIPF and HbbTV support. However, Flash isn’t announced yet, but we’re wishing it will be included upon release.

“The Web as we know it is evolving, and we are committed to making it more accessible across diverse devices,” said Christen Krogh, Chief Development Officer, Opera Software. “Our ability to address key hybrid broadcast-broadband initiatives in numerous markets makes us a natural fit with Sony. By delivering both a global viewpoint and the necessary technology, we are able to stay on the cutting edge of the industry.”

Meanwhile, they didn’t include any other information about the devices which’ll be supporting Opera, but somehow we have a good guess that these devices are those presented during CES 2011.

C out the video from Opera after the skip.

Chrome Lets you Know the Errors: Is it You or the Site?

Written on September 01, 2010 by Charles Bass

Google Chrome answers the question, is it “Down For Everyone Or Just Me"?

Open a site, it indicates an HTTP 404 error. Reload the page, but everything is still down. Think about it, is it my computer who has the problem or the site or the browser I’m currently tied to?

We freak out, what’s going on? Twitter doesn’t do you any updates, so with Facebook and you form an angry face. Sometimes its just you or your net is down. It seems that Chrome can now save you from the headache not to mention the embarrassment.

Internet addicts are very much familiar with sites that lets you know if you are the problem or the site itself. It was made by a Twitter employee and was sold earlier 2010. Go to their site, enter the URL and see if there are people crying out loud like you are doing because the site was troubled or its just you and your insane Internet connection. Chrome wouldn’t want to be left out. So as the Rudefox blog pointed out today, they are making the almost the same sight.

While trying hard to load Chatroutlette today (like the rest of us) to see that if it is down, the author received a note that browser rather typical: “Oops! Google Chrome could not connect to” But what’s interesting is that below that, it reads “Other users are also experiencing difficulties connecting to this site, so you may have to wait a few minutes.“

Interesting inoovation, isn’t?

‘Panorama': Featured in Firefox 4 Beta

Written on August 25, 2010 by Charles Bass

Mozilla has sculpted their Firefox 4 Beta with this feature that must be very familiar to Mac users.

Recently, we told you about Firefox’s feature called Tab Candy. There must be interests in this theory because people kept commenting and asking for more. Mozilla saw it coming and confirmed that this feature will be a part of the Firefox 4 release but not as Tab Candy.

Panorama is the name Mozilla has decided to call their new feature. In a recent blog from the company’s Asa Raskin, he showed off the revamps they’ve given Panorama in the previous months. One of this was the inclusion to the beta of Firefox 4. The feature turns out to be more smooth than the experiments. The idea is it is an easy way to declutter your page and organize a cluster of tabs in different windows. You can zoom out by clicking the Panorama button and see a view of all you windows. It is like the Expose feature that we familiar with in Mac computers. It took seven months for the feature to develop. He noted a few principles and lay outs on why Panorama will work:

Remove distractions: out of sight, out of mind. This is the corollary to seeing is remembering. We, as humans, are bad at multitasking. As practitioners of GTD know, the secret to productivity is removing distractions and focusing. Piles let you visually hide the pages by which you don’t want to be visually distracted, which strategically requires recall-based memory. When you are in a group, you only see the tabs related to the task at hand, again allowing you to focus. Strategic hiding is key to a mind free of info-guilt.

This September will be the first time that the world will play with the beta on an actual note. The few details about the overhauled browser that were released last November. Since that revelation, Microsoft has given soft launches just like four platform previews giving us details on Internet Explorer’s system.

Even the browser’s hardware acceleration capability was discussed in the platform preview, which is quite impressive and elaborate.

Waving Goodbye to Google Wave

Say farewell to Google Wave.

We were shocked since this is unexpected. Google Wave is finally bidding farewell. Google Wave is a community collaboration tool that allows user to message all the people on your community with just one click. In a post by Google’s SVP for Operations Urs Hölzle, he said that there are “[no] plans to continue developing Wave as standalone product.” Let’s send all the blame to the low desired user rate.

The site will stay “atleast through the end of the year”, but with no further promises. Tools will more or less be released “so that users can easily ‘liberate’ their content from Wave.”

Wave is best to fix existing Google Products like Docs and Gmail and they are actually planning to extend the use of this tech to those projects.

Here’s a little tribute to Wave:
