"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.

Good News! You can now carry Google Instant everywhere and anywhere. Google Instant beta has arrived on smartphones. With just a tap, you can either turn on or off this new feature.

Google Instant is all set for US iPhones and Android devices. Just today, a beta version was release by Google. According to Google’s blog, Instant search is present on some Android 2.2 platforms as well as Apple products running the iOS 4. As of the moment, Instant is only available in English. Evetually, Google will add more languages and other countries will have the update soon.

Testing this addition, you have to tap the “turn on” link after the search box while on on your mobile device; wait for a bit and then refresh. Google Instant mobile is the same with the desktop version. And you can use it the same way you are using the desktop counterpart.

This service is designed to work over Wi-Fi networks as well as 3G. You can turn it on and off without leaving the page you are currently in. All you have to do is tap the “turn on” or “turn off” link.

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

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?
