Support for more speed
This latest version of Opera is faster than ever before, thanks to many performance optimizations. It also includes support for the SPDY (“Speedy”) network standard. SPDY was designed to cut down the time it takes for a webpage to load, while reducing some of the security risks posed by HTTP. Some of your favorite sites, including Gmail.com and Twitter.com, are already using SPDY.Extensions, improved
Opera 12.10 includes a more robust and powerful API for URL filtering, along with three new APIs: Context Menu API, Screenshots API and Resource Loader API. These new APIs will allow developers to create even more engaging extensions for Opera users. Additionally, we are adding an extensions download-progress indicator, and, to make your browsing safer, only trusted sites will be able to install extensions.Operating system compatibility: Windows 8 and Mac OS X
We have added basic touch support for Opera in Windows 8 Classic, so you will be able to scroll, zoom and browse pages and elements easily. As an extra bonus, touch support also works on Windows 7.
Meanwhile, our Mac users will enjoy using the new capabilities of OS X Mountain Lion with Opera. You are now able to use Mountain Lion’s built-in share function, using the new Share button in Opera’s address bar, as well as see Opera notifications in the Notification Center.High-resolution display
We’re polishing Opera to make it shine in all high-resolution displays, including Apple’s new Retina Displays. That means you’ll get more out of the pictures you share, the videos you watch and the text you read on the web. See the difference for yourself!New web standards support
Along with these new features, we are launching support for some new web standards including the Fullscreen API and the Page Visibility API. We are also updating our WebSockets standard implementation and enabling it by default. This will provide richer functionality to web developers and an improved experience for end users. In addition to all this, we are adding support for International Color Consortium profiles, which will make your images look even better, with more vibrant and accurate colors.
