It's so fresh and new, in fact, that it was only released to the world in an experimental Opera Labs build yesterday. What is Paged Media? The short answer is that it's a whole new way of reading online. But for the full story, read more below...

Since originally proposing Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) way back in '94, Lie has also proposed the Acid 2 test as well as THE book on Designing for the Web. But a standards evangelist's work is never done... which is why he comes to HUGE to speak about some exciting new developments he's been working on.

It's Wednesday. Known as RELEASE ALL THE THINGS day at Opera. First of, we have an important security update for Opera: 11.52. It fixes a security issue. This might be the last release we do before Opera 12 - so make sure you grab it from www.opera.com/download/ or trough auto update (click Help » Update).
At Up North Web, we showcased a cool demo of the new Device API coming to Opera. This allow communication between our browser and webcams - even on mobile!
The best way to test this is probably by downloading the labs build. Then get ready to blow your mind repeatedly:
These Opera Labs releases support CSS Paged Media created by Håkon Wium Lie. This allow desktop browsers to navigate webpages in a whole new way. We suggest you take a look at the demo and find inspiration!
