This has been a week full of exciting events. It started on Monday with the release of Opera 9.1, which included the new real-time Faud Protection. Opera's Fraud Protection utilizes back-ends from both GeoTrust and PhishTank to ensure the best possible protection for the end users.
On Wednesday I had (thanks to Håkon) the very pleasant first encounter with the $100 laptop from the OLPC project. I would like to send a special christmas greetings to the people working on this project - keep on doing good!
The mobile team had also a great week here at Opera and announced on Thursday that Samsung will be using Opera Mobile in their upcomming mobile phones.
Today we are very proud to release the preview of the Opera browser for the beautiful white Wii (I believe our CTO was up 2am this morning). The browser features some very unique innovations like the new Intelligent Zoom. This enables users to simply point the Wii Remote at the area of interest on the screen and Opera will automatically adapt the zoom level to fit the area. The browser will for example provide a different zoom level when reading an article on BBC than it will when logging in to Gmail. The feature is really great and its crucial for the user experience since TVs have much lower resolutions than today's PC monitors. Now I just need to get hold of a Wii - Perhaps I should make a Widget?
Happy x-mas browsing everyone - and long live the web!
