  1. Opera 20 is a fast and free alternative web browser, that includes tabbed browsing, pop-up blocking, integrated searches. Opera 20 web browser is based on Chromium and Blink (the rendering engine used byChromium). It has come up with bigger guns to enter the race for the most popular web browser, as the current leading role is played between Google Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer. The web browser has one intuitive, powerful location for searching and navigating the web. Search using multiple providers and view site suggestions as you type. The Discover feature gives you top-quality news and entertainment from around the globe. Opera also has the advanced functions such as Opera Mail program, the lightweight, customizable mail client that refines your email experience. Opera 20 displays security badges, which give you a quick glance at the security of a page. If the browser’s Fraud and Malware Protection detects anything potentially dangerous, it will display a popup to warn you. Opera 20 has a feature called Off-Road mode, which uses server-side compression to give you better browsing speeds when you are on slow connections. If you are on dial-up or pay for your internet connection by data usage, Off-Road mode compression can save you money, too. Private browsing ensures that your internet history and activity is removed as soon as you close the window. Private windows erase any browsing data once you close the window – history, image cache, passwords, everything. You can browse more comfortably on public computers knowing your browsing activity and passwords are removed when you close the window. To ensure your privacy, there are ways you can control how websites monitor your web activities, and ways to keep your browsing habits and data private if you share a computer or account. You can manually set what information you want to share with specific sites. Opera 20.0.1387.24 Features: * Bookmarks bar – you can drag sites from speed dial and tabs * The URL bar badge shows a broken padlock if the site’s certificate is not valid * Advanced settings: use big speed dial thumbnails * Advanced settings: set width and height of speed dial thumbnails * Menu items for Speed Dial, Discover, and Stash Maintenance * Improved stash screenshots – goodbye blurry images! * Performance improvements of theme loading * Advanced setting:Confirm exit when using Command–Q on Mac * Network installer for Windows Extensions * Inline installation of extensions. This makes it easier for users to install extensions hosted in the Opera addons store, but without leaving your site, thereby reducing friction. You simply use the following JavaScript: * opr.addons.installExtension(, [success_callback], [failure_callback]), where id is the ID of the extension, not the URL * Extensions chrome.system.storage API Design * For the new release, has been refreshed the Mac disk image background a little. They are helpful trolls like those sometimes seen in the Norwegian mountains. In any case, they are there to guide you through the installation process.

    [Infographic] Browser Wars

    According to New Relic’s data, which analyzed more than 16.8 million page loads from early October through early November last year, BlackBerry 10 devices loaded web pages in 1.55 seconds on average. The second-fastest web browser, Opera Mini 4.2, wasn’t even close, with page load times that averaged 4.78 seconds. In other words, the BlackBerry 10 browser is more than three times faster than its next-closest competitor. Apple’s Safari browser on the iPad came in at No. 3 with an average page load time of 4.91 seconds, and no other native web browser was even included in New Relic’s top-9 rankings. An infographic showcasing the company’s test results follows below. Source

  5. By Casey Johnston - Jan 28 2014, 7:00am AUSEST Updates turned some Chrome add-ons maliciousnot all browsers allow that. Customers complain about activity tracking in CRXMouse on Chrome, a particularly invasive add-on. In a recent revelation by OMG Chrome and the developer of the Chrome extension Add to Feedly, it came to light that Chrome extensions are capable of changing service or ownership under a users nose without much notification. In the case of Add to Feedly, a buyout meant thousands of users were suddenly subjected to injected adware and redirected links. Chromes regulations for existing extensions are set to change in June 2014. The changes should prevent extensions from being anything but simple and single-purpose in nature, with a single visible UI surface in Chrome and a single browser action or page action button, like the extensions made by Pinterest or OneTab. This has always been the policy, per a post to the Chromium blog back in December. But going forward, it will be enforced for all new extensions immediately and for all existing extensions retroactively beginning in June. Given how Chromes system of updates, design restrictions, and ownership seemed to have gotten ahead of itself, we decided to take a look at the policies of other browsers to see if their extensions could be subjected to a similar fate. While Chrome isnt the only browser where an Add To Feedly tale could be spun, it seems to be the most likely place for such an outcome. Firefox Mozillas Firefox differs from Chrome in that it has an involved review system for all extensions that go from developers to the front-end store. Reviewers will reject an extension if it violates any of the rules in Firefoxs extension development documents. One of these rules is no surprisesan add-on cant do anything it doesnt disclose to users, and existing add-ons cant change their functionality without notifying the user and getting their permission. Firefox puts add-ons with unexpected features, like advertising that supports the add-on financially, into a separate category. Users have to explicitly opt-in to these features, says Jonathan Nightingale, vice president of Firefox. This means that in these cases, users will see a screen offering them the additional features, says Nightingale. One example is FastestFox, which pops a tab at first install asking the user to enable ad injection from Superfish. It's how developers implement these opt-in screens that could provide for a possible loophole; the addition of advertising might be obscurable by language, and data tracking could be, too (it's permitted under Firefoxs rules, but it must be disclosed in a privacy policy). Still, the review policy and need for opt-in for these more pernicious features both help prevent users from having new functionality sprung on them. Safari Safari has extensive design documents for its extensions but no central clearinghouse for them like other browsers. Apple keeps a gallery of a chosen few extensions that must meet certain regulations, but these represent a small fraction of the extensions available. Data tracking of an extensions users is possible, per the design docs, as is ad manipulation. Unlike Chrome, but like Firefox, the download and installation of Safari extension updates must be manually approved by the user. There are no regulations for disclosing functionality changes or changes of ownership, however. Internet Explorer Microsofts browser absolves itself of responsibility for add-ons on a support page where it states, "While add-ons can make your browsing experience better by giving you access to great Web content, some add-ons can pose security, privacy, or performance risks. Make sure any add-ons you install are from a trusted source." Add on at your own risk. Like Apple, Microsoft maintains an exclusive gallery of vetted add-ons. The company encourages extension makers to get user consent for unexpected add-on functionality, but it doesnt require it or block extensions that dont do it. Markup-based extensions can only be installed from within the browser, and therefore these must have the users explicit consent according to Microsoft. Other than this infrastructure, nothing prevents IE add-ons from doing things like injecting ads or redirecting a browsing experience (remember, this was the former home of the invasive toolbar add-on). IE10 does have an add-on management window, but some add-ons, like the ad-injecting Buzzdcock, have to be removed as if they are full-fledged applications. Uninstalling a particularly invasive IE add-on. Opera The latest versions of Opera are able to use Chromium extensions, but unlike Chrome ones, they get a review process thats similar to Firefoxs. Most importantly in Opera, there are restrictions on the types of scripts an extension can run and how they handle ads. Andreas Bovens, head of developer relations at Opera Software, told Ars in an e-mail that Opera doesnt allow extensions that include ads or tracking in content scripts, so extensions that, for example, inject ads inside webpages the user visits are not allowed. Extensions can, however, have ads in their options pages or in the pop-up that is triggered by their button in the browsers interface. Every extension gets a review, and the review team takes special care to suss out the nature of any obfuscated JavaScript code. If some of the code is obfuscated, reviewers ask the developers for the unobfuscated code to look at as well as a link to the obfuscation tool. That way we can check that the input and output indeed match, Bovens says. When an extensions ownership is transferred or the extension is updated, its subject to the same rigorous review process as an extension thats being submitted for the first time, according to Bovens. An extension that goes from having no ads to injecting ads, as some Chrome extensions do, simply would not pass [Operas] review process, Bovens says. Retiring to the not-so-Wild West? While Chrome extensions may have a better ideology than those of some other browsers, the breadth and depth of functionality that Chrome extensions can have without any kind of review process means that Chrome users trust can get taken for granted. Its similar to the Google Play app store, in that way: pretty much anything can make it to the market, but enough user complaints can get it taken down, as in the case of Add to Feedly and Tweet This Page. Based on policy and practice, users who heavily rely on extensions or have been made wary of them by developers recent transgressions may be safer on browsers like Firefox and Opera, where regulations are a bit stricter and there are people to police them. But there can be downsides to a vetting process, too, mainly in terms of rate-limiting iteration and improvements, so its a matter of weighing options. Former home? This is the current home for an awful lot of crapware add-ons, like Conduit's search hijacker, or the Ask.com toolbar that still hasn't died a thousand deaths, even though it should. http://arstechnica.com/business/2014/01/seeking-higher-ground-after-chrome-extension-adwaremalware-problems
  6. One of the things that I like about the Firefox web browser is that it will only load the active tab on session restore while keeping all other open websites in tabs in unloaded state until you click on them. This speeds up the browser's start-up performance significantly, which becomes even more apparent when you compare it to how Google Chrome handles things. A new Developer version of Opera 21 has just been released by Opera Software which introduces several start-up time improvements that you can enable to speed up the time it takes to start the browser. Part of the functionality has been integrated in older versions of the browser. Here is a quick overview of what Opera added in the latest build of the browser and what has been available before. Note that you can enable or disable the features by loading opera:flags in the browser. It is also necessary to restart the browser after you make changes to experimental flags. For some features, this means that you need to restart the browser twice to see the effect. Enable lazy session loading (opera://flags/#lazy-session-loading) - When enabled, will only load the active tab and no other tab that is open when the browser starts. Websites in other tabs are loaded when their tabs are activated. Extended lazy session loading (opera://flags/#extended-lazy-session-loading) - Builds up on lazy session loading. Instead of only loading the website in the active tab, websites are loaded gradually in Opera instead. The current limit is set to two websites at the same time. While this increases the time before all tabs are loaded in the browser, it improves the start up performance at the same time. Onload event delay (opera://flags/#delay-onload) - According to Opera, the preference that had the greatest impact during tests. Will delay onload events on web pages until the tab is activated by the user. Tab hibernation (opera://flags/#tab-hibernation) - Inactive background tabs are automatically suspended when this flag is enabled. A tab is considered inactive if no activity has been recorded for a 40 second period. Save session for offline restart (opera://flags/#session-tabs-serialization) - Opera saves tab information to disk on exit, and will load the data from the hard drive on the next restart instead of from the network. Restore contents of contenteditable elements (opera://flags/#restore-contenteditables-state) - Restores the contents of elements that have contendeditable="true" on session restore or history navigation. Opera does not highlight inactive or unloaded tabs currently. There is no distinction between a tab with a fully loaded website and one where the site has not been loaded yet. Additional information about the new features are available on the Opera Desktop Team Blog. There you also find download links to download the latest Opera Developer release for Windows or Mac to your system. Source: Ghacks Credits: Martin Brinkmann
