Get a new look and feel with themes, use your webcam with websites and enjoy improved stability. Let us know what you think in the comments or in the forums.
With 64-bit support made to Opera 12, startup times and page loading is faster than ever before. We now run plugins (such as Flash) as separate processes - this makes Opera a lot more stable.
Do you have a camera on your computer? By giving Opera 12 beta access to your camera, websites will be able to snap a picture of you directly - instead of uploading a profile picture of yourself. Check out some of demos on Shiny Demos, such as:
- Support for the Do Not Track header
- CSS3 Animations and Transitions
- HTML5 Drag and Drop
- Support for CORS — not the beer, but rather Cross-Origin Resource Sharing
- Opt-in hardware acceleration and WebGL
