Vivaldi 1.13 Web Browser Officially Out with New Window Panel, Better Downloads

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 08:00:00 +0000

Vivaldi Technologies announced on Wednesday the release and immediate availability for download of the Vivaldi 1.13 web browser, a new stable release that introduces more new features and dozens of improvements. Work on Vivaldi 1.13 started two months ago, on September 21, 2017, and since then the web browser received no less than eleven snapshots that brought all the goodies listed at a glance in the next paragraphs. This release is built on top of the latest Chromium 62 open-source web browser and it's the first of many to come to rely more on built-in functionality than add-ons. Highlights of Vivaldi 1.13 include a new window panel that promises to give users more control over their tabs and helps them manage multiple tabs at once more easily. As you can see in the video attached below, the window panel opens a tree-style view of your tabs on the side of the browser's window, but for now it only works per window. "Vivaldi offers more built-in options for managi...



Top Websites Are Using Keyloggers Recording Even Passwords, Research Shows

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 07:25:00 +0000

Well over 400 high profile websites are collecting all the keys that you’ve pressed, and it turns out that most of them don’t even know about it. When we hear the word keylogger, we imagine some sort of nefarious software installed on computers, without the knowledge of the users, collecting data regarding the keys pressed and sending them to third parties. That’s so yesterday, and we really miss those times. It was clear that keyloggers were evil and that they could be dealt with the help of an antivirus software for example. Now, we’re living in a new world and keyloggers are embedded in websites, and there’s nothing that the users can do about them. Most of the time, people don’t even suspect that what they are tying is being recorded. Not your average and shady website You must also imagine that only websites of questionable repute are subject to such practices, but that that’s not the case. According to



Opera 51 Development Kicks Off Based on Chromium 64, Updates Private Mode on Mac

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 15:02:00 +0000

After promoting last week the upcoming Opera 50 web browser to the beta channel, Opera Software refreshed the developer channel with the initial release of Opera 51. That's right, development of the Opera 51 was kicked off, and it's based on the latest Chromium 64 open-source web browser. The Opera 51.0.2776.0 developer snapshot is out with support for remembering pinned tabs after a restart, which appears to work even if you choose the "Open a specific page or set of pages" or "Open the start page" options. In addition, Opera 51 promises to redesign the private mode window for users of the macOS operating system to make it look more like the rest of the web browser's design. On top of that, there's now also a new animation you can see in the s...



Opera 50 Enters Beta with Chromecast Support, Adds Bitcoin & Litecoin Conversion

Sat, 11 Nov 2017 13:20:00 +0000

Just one day after promoting the Opera 49 web browser to the stable channel, Opera Software announced the promotion of the upcoming major release, Opera 50, to the beta channel. That's right, Opera 50 entered beta stages of development, which means that it's now a bit more stable if you plan on using instead of the Opera 49 stable release because of its exciting new features, such as Chromecast support, a new, simpler way to save web pages as PDF documents, and support for cryptocurrencies. Some of these features have already been revealed when Opera 50 was still in the developer channel, but we'd like to remind you that Opera 50 Beta supports Chromecast playback, which can be enabled from Settings/Preferences -> Browser -> User interface -...

Owners of HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and other OpenVR-compatible devices can now easily view the quickly-growing library of awesome 360-degree content," said Krystian Kolondra, EVP Desktop at Opera Software in today's



Finally, Twitter Doubles the Character Limit of Tweets to 280 Characters

Wed, 08 Nov 2017 02:26:00 +0000

Twitter announced today that it finally lift the 140 character limit of tweets on its social networking platform, allowing users worldwide to tweet longer tweets composed of up to 280 characters. In September, Twitter launched an experimental program, which was available only to a limited numbers of users, to test the 280-characters limit on tweets and see how their infrastructure would react, as well as to monitor if the speed of their platform remains unchanged. Apparently, the experiment was a success, and now Twitter is rolling out the 280-character limit to all languages that need it (see below for languages that don't need 280 characters). During their research, they also discovered that only 5% of tweets were longer than 140 characters, and only 2% passed 190 characters. "During the first few days of the test many people Tweeted the full 280 limit because it wa...

"A very frequent request since the start of the Vivaldi journey has been a Windows panel," said Ruarí Ødegaard, QA and Testing at Vivaldi. "The point of this panel is to make life easier for those of you working with many tabs. It makes it simple to sort, search (through titles) and manage multiple tabs at once." Designed to work only per window, the new Window Panel feature will be improved in a future release of the Vivaldi web browser with more functionality, depending on users' requests...



Opera 50 Web Browser to Add Chromecast Support and Cryptocurrencies Conversions

Tue, 24 Oct 2017 17:58:00 +0000

Development of the Opera 50 web browser continues, and a new developer build is out with a bunch of new and exciting features, as well as various small tweaks and the usual bug fixes. Opera still lies in the Developer Channel, and version 50.0.2753.0 has been rebased on Chromium 63.0.3230.0 adding support for Google's Chromecast media streaming device on all supported platforms. Chromecast support can be enabled from Settings/Preferences -> Browser -> User interface -> "Enable Chromecast support."

Google Quietly Releases Chrome 62 to Stable Channel for Linux, Mac, and Windows - Updated

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 00:11:00 +0000

Google quietly promoted the Chrome 62 web browser to the stable channel today for desktops, including Mac, GNU/Linux, and Microsoft Windows platforms. As usual, Google updated the Chrome Beta channel to version 62.0.3202.62 for Windows, Mac, and Linux, and we were expecting to see another blog announcement for the stable release, but it didn't happen and users reported in the comments that they are receiving the same build as a stable update, not beta. If you're updating your Chrome browser right now on your Linux, Mac or Windows PC, you'll receive version 62.0.3202.62, a release that it would appear to the introduce a more aggressive "Not secure" warning for websites that are still using the HTTP protocol instead of the more secure HTTPS (Secure HTTP) one. Chrome 62 also improves the network information API by implementing network quality indicators, adds support for OpenType Variable Fonts, and introduces the ability to capture and process media streams from HTM...



Facebook Buys tbh Viral App for Teenagers

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 12:25:00 +0000

Facebook has just purchased a new app called tbh that’s supposedly aimed at teenagers that just want to be nice to other people. tbh stands for To Be Honest and it’s one of the most viral apps at this moment. More than a billion messages have been exchanged through tbh, and it’s seen exponential growth. So much so that Facebook became very much interested in it and bought it. What sets the application apart from everything else is that it’s not just another messaging app with social features. It’s not about taking pictures of the food, or any of the stuff that worked for other apps. It’s all about giving positive feedback in an anonymous way, and to make people feel better. Facebook wants to make a good impression People might not know this, but Facebook buys a lot of stuff, all the time. One of the most prolific acquisition was that of Whatsapp, although since they seemed to remain largely independent, users have kind of forgot about that. Sinc...



Opera 50 Browser to Ship with New "Save Page as PDF" Feature, HiDPI Improvements

Fri, 13 Oct 2017 21:10:00 +0000

Development of the Opera 50 web browser continues, and today Opera Software published a new Opera Developer update, versioned 50.0.2743.0, which introduces a new "Save Page as PDF" feature and many other improvements, especially for HiDPI displays. While support for saving web pages in the PDF document file format was already available in the Opera web browser via the Print dialog, Opera Software devices it's time to implement a proper one, and they call it "Save Page as PDF," implemented directly in O-Menu via the File menu on GNU/Linux, macOS and Windows platforms. The feature will allow you to easily save any web page as a PDF document for offline reading or anything else you want to do with it. The good thing about saving an entire web page as a PDF is that the file is smaller than if you were to make a screenshot and save it as a PNG image, not to mention that you can copy...

Mozilla on Thursday announced the release of Firefox 56, a minor update of the popular web browser that introduces the new screenshot tool and various other improvements to offer you the best possible browsing experience. Firefox 56 comes almost three months after the Firefox 55 release, and it's the first version of the web browser to offer the new, built-in screenshot tool that Mozilla worked on for the last few months to all users.

"We enhanced the search pop up tool when we introduced the currency converter and now, starting today we are adding units of measurement and time zone converters." With Opera 48 you'll also be able to finally remove unwante...



Twitter Is Finally Moving to 280-Character Limit

Wed, 27 Sep 2017 08:21:00 +0000

Twitter is finally changing the 140 character limit on its platform, and they are planning to double it, first as a test and then for everyone. The number 140 is a tough limit for Twitter users, but it’s also something that most people are accustomed to. In fact, it’s likely that many users won’t like this change at all because they imagine they will have a lot more to read. The truth is in the numbers. It turns out that 9% of Twitter users hit the 140 character limit. It might seem a small number, but it’s, in fact, a big one. Simply put, there are too many people shaving off their tweets to the right length than you would expect to see from a mere coincidence. Just a test for now, but it will be here soon The new character limit on Twitter will be 280, and only a small number of people will be using it for now. The idea is to gauge the impact on the platform before pushing it for everyone. “Although we feel confident about our data and the pos...

Coming hot on the heels of last week's update and rebased on Chromium 62.0.3202.18, today's Opera 49 developer update brought smoother video playback to macOS users and integrated the VK messenger on the sidebar.

Vivaldi 1.13 Development Kicks Off with a Bunch of Bug Fixes and Improvements

Sat, 23 Sep 2017 11:10:00 +0000

You'd think that with the release of Vivaldi 1.12 stable the development would take at least a week off before starting to work on the next version. Wrong!

That's right, Vivaldi Snapshot 1.13.966.3 is out as the first development milestone towards Vivaldi 1.13, the next stable release of the Chromium-based web browser designed with the power user in mind.

Chromium Will Soon Let You Browse the Web in VR with a Daydream View Headset

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 18:07:00 +0000

Chromium evangelist François Beaufort posted today on his Google+ profile information regarding the VR (Virtual Reality) capabilities of the open-source web browser, which is the base of Chrome OS and Google Chrome. It would appear that the Chromium team is working on a set of new virtual reality features for the web browser, which means that more VR goodies are coming to popular Chromium-based web browsers like Opera, Vivaldi, and Google Chrome. While the Chromium team is currently working on the possible of browsing the Web in VR with Google's Daydream View headset, it looks like you can already give VR a try on the latest Google Chrome 61 build released earlier today for GNU/Linux, Mac and Windows. "Users can give this a try today by navigating to any site in Chrome and then simply putting the phone into their Da...



Vivaldi 1.12 Web Browser Debuts with Highly Requested Features, Improvements

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 16:35:00 +0000

Vivaldi, the Chromium-based web browser designed with the power user in mind, has been recently updated to version 1.12, a release that introduces highly requested features and a whole lot of under-the-hood improvements.

Opera Is World's First Web Browser to Support 360-Degree Videos in VR Headsets

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 15:36:00 +0000

The newest Opera developer version that launched today for Linux, Mac, and Windows computers comes built-in with a VR 360 player feature that makes the Chromium-based web browser the first to support 360-degree videos in VR headsets. Engineered to be compatible with popular virtual reality headsets like Oculus Rift or HTC Vive, the new VR 360 player is enabled by default and automatically detects an installed VR headset that supports Valve's OpenVR SDK and API. Of course, this means that the feature supports other OpenVR capable devices. "When a user browses to a video, a button above the video (next to Opera’s video pop out button) labeled ‘Watch in VR’ will appear. One simple click will engulf the viewer into the 360-degree world offered by the video," explains Andrzej Czarnecki, Product Manager at Opera. Opera says that they created VR playback directly into their web ...



Google Chrome to Mute Autoplay Videos Starting January 2018

Fri, 15 Sep 2017 07:07:00 +0000

Google is finally recognizing that websites which play multimedia content without the user’s approval are annoying, and it will deal with it by muting said content and by giving users the power to stop it in the Chrome browser. It’s true that not everyone has this kind of annoying content, but the ones that do display it should already know that it’s wrong. Unfortunately, it often happens that this behavior is tolerated by users because the site might also provide other valuable information. So, each time when we hear something playing in the background we have to go tab hunting, trying to figure out what’s the source of the sound. It’s even a bigger problem when a user opens multiple tabs from the same source, which means getting multiple players starting at once. Putting the power in the hands of users There are various ways that Google can deal with this, but they have to consider both the users and the websites that host the videos. Every tim...



New Copyright Laws in European Union to Sabotage User's Freedom, Says Mozilla

Wed, 13 Sep 2017 07:15:00 +0000

The copyright laws are about to change in the European Union, and the plan is to bring them up to date, but Mozilla says it will significantly impact the freedom of Internet users. The European Union does have copyright laws, but they are outdated and not designed for this age. For the most part, the legislation is taken care of by the member states, but that also means they don’t have the same power. On the other hand, regulating copyright laws is always going to be a tricky problem, and someone will get upset, be it the copyright holders or the people that want to make use of protected material. Mozilla says that freedom and openness is threatened The Mozilla Organization is a US-based non-profit, and some people might think that their stance might be a strange one, but this is not the first time when the organization took a position on laws that could limit online access to users. A new proposal is going before the European Parliament Committ...



Opera 49 to Introduce New Private Mode on Linux & Windows, Easier Configuration

Thu, 07 Sep 2017 19:11:00 +0000

Opera Software released a new developer build of their Chromium-based Opera web browser, versioned 49.0.2705.0, which introduces a new private mode and an all-in-one panel to ease the configuration of Opera's most essential features. Opera 49 still lays in the developer channel and it's been recently rebased on the Chromium 62.0.3188.4 open-source web browser.

The first of these, is a new private mode that's now available on both Linux and Windows systems. "Our original appearance for private browsing was a bit harsh to our users’ eyes because of the very dark background colo...



Twitter Finally Rolls Out Night Mode Feature to Linux, Windows and Mac Users

Wed, 06 Sep 2017 20:30:00 +0000

Twitter announced today that it managed to implement the Night Mode feature to the desktop version of its social networking service, available on all Linux and Windows PCs, as well as Macs. The long-anticipated Night Mode feature is ready to conquer your desktop, help stop eye strain, and help you fall asleep after a long night of twittering. The feature is currently rolling out to the desktop version of twitter.com and should be supported on all modern web browsers, including Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Opera. iOS and Android users were able to enjoy the Night Mode feature on their devices for more than a year now, but it took a while to arrive on our Macs, Linux, and Windows PCs. By design, the Night Mode feature restricts blue light emanating from your display by changing its hue when you're working at night, but on the desktop it will only change the look of twitter.com from white to black. Here's how to enable Night Mode on twitter.com



Twitter Bans User for Posting a Death Threat… Against a Mosquito

Thu, 31 Aug 2017 07:42:00 +0000

Twitter is ignoring all the calls to ban US President Donald Trump for repeatedly violating the terms of service, but instead, it doesn’t have a problem to block an account of a regular user who posted death threats against a mosquito. Twitter user @DaydreamMatcha discovered that his account was blocked by the service shortly after posting what he originally thought could be an amusing message for his followers: “Bastard! Do you enjoy biting me all over while I'm trying to relax and watch TV? Die? (Actually, you're already dead),” he posted referring to a mosquito in his room. The user also posted a photo with the mosquito squashed on the floor. But as it turns out, Twitter doesn’t allow any kind of threats to be posted on the service, so the @Dayd...



Google Shuts Down the Internet in Japan… by Mistake

Mon, 28 Aug 2017 10:08:00 +0000

Google accidentally toggled the Internet switch to off in Japan last Friday, with customers of the biggest ISPs in the country unable to connect to the web for several hours. Google’s big oops moment took place after the company broke down a Border Gateway Protocol (also referred to as BGP) with a configuration error causing false announced peer prefixes sent to Verizon. This in turn caused Internet providers like NTT Communications and KDDI Corp. to be left without an Internet connection, with the luckiest of customers “only” experiencing a terribly slow connection. NTT’s Internet service, called OCN, is being used by nearly 7.7 million home users and 480,000 companies and is the largest in Japan. Google: Sorry, fixed! Google admitted the mistake in a statement issued to Japanese media, explaining that it corrected the bad configuration in just 8 minutes. The outage, however, lasted for several hours, and was first experienced at 12:22 PM local ...



Former CIA Agent Wants to Buy Twitter and Ban Trump: It’s Time to Shut Him Down

Fri, 25 Aug 2017 07:12:00 +0000

Donald Trump could soon be forced to start posting his nonsense on Weibo if a GoFundMe campaign turns successful and helps an organization called GlobalZero raise $1 billion. What the org wants to do is buy a hefty Twitter share and then use the stakeholder power to ban Donald Trump, thus making sure that the service no longer ignores “growing calls to enforce their own community standards and delete Trump’s account.” The more unexpected piece of information is that the campaign was started by a former CIA agent called Valerie Wilson, who backs the campaign and wants Donald Trump out from Twitter. At the time of posting this article, the campaign has already raised $58,000, so there’s still a long way to go to reach the $1 billion threshold, if this ever happens. Twitter is Donald Trump’s “biggest megaphone” GlobalZero explains that by using Twitter, Donald Trump “damage the country and put peopl...
