  • Opera Hits 150 Million Users, Announces The Milestone In A Super Creative Way

    “Check out Opera.com“, a spokesperson for the eponymous Norwegian software company asks me. I do, and what I see seems to be Opera Software co-founder Jon S. von Tetzchner‘s email inbox, browseable and all. Evidently, this isn’t the man’s actual email inbox, but seemingly the result of a night of drunken brainstorming by the marketing team at the wacky browser… Read More

  • The Father Of CSS Talks HTML5, CSS3 (A TCTV Interview)

    Lots of abbreviations in the title and URL, but with an audience like TechCrunch’s I’m not too worried about the point coming across or not.

  • Opera/Chrome Rivalry Gets The Hitler Video Treatment

    When Opera Software last week released the final version of its Opera browser (version 10.60), it titled its press release ‘What is faster than the fastest?’. The company touts other features, like built-in geolocation and webM support, as well but not nearly as much as it boasts about its browser’s speed. By doing so, the software maker aims to challenge claims that… Read More
