fyi: Opera 11.50.1027

Postby mapleleaf » Tue May 31, 2011 1:44 pm


FYI

The new Opera 11.50.1027 released today is impressive to say the least.

It is one of the six major browser version that I test my html5 with.

In testing for its html5 compatibility it scored 265/300 2nd to Google Chrome of 295/300

Since the current FireFox 5.0ß2 scores 240/300, I am curious in what it will score when it is supposedly being released on June5.

perhaps I was a bit ambiguous when I made the statement. I was refering to its html5 functionality.

My web site is in html5 and I test with the six major browser type of which Opera is one.

To answer your question, I cannot give you an answer only to say that I do have Opera users visiting my web site.

However, if you are interested then visit this link which contains useful information.

Figures attainable are up to the end of April, 2011

Thanks for the link. Out of curiousity, How do you cater for users using IE6 if you are writing in html5? I'm interested in html5, (like the ability to add curves to content boxes) so will play with it when the new version of web editor arrives...

There are two things namely:
    1. exclude visitors who have <=IE7
    2. use the following on every page

Here are the first few line in the head element of my html5 document
Code: Select all
<!doctype html>

   <!--[if lte IE 7]>
        <script>
            location.href='info3.html';
        </script>
   <![endif]-->

<html lang="en" dir="ltr" id="Mirana&nbsp;Net">
<head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <!--[if IE]><![endif]-->
    <title dir="ltr">Multimedia R&amp;D&nbsp;&nbsp;&middot;&nbsp;&nbsp;Mirana Net</title>
    <meta name=viewport content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
    <meta name="keywords" content="html5, Bad Salzuflen, web design, multimedia examples,photo gallery" />
    <meta name="description" content="Mirana Net in Bad Sazluflen, Germany offers a photo gallery of the Canadian Rocky Mountains.web design upon request. multimedia examples in html5 using the JWPlayer." />
    <meta name="author" content="© 2011 Mirana Net" />
    <meta name="robots" content="index, follow" />
                    <!-- FAVICON -->
    <link rel="icon" href="favicon.ico" />
    <link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico" />
                     <!-- STYLESHEETS -->
    <link rel="stylesheet" media=screen href="css/style1.css"  />
    <link rel='stylesheet' href='css/prettify.css' />



below is what I use to give IE8 minimal CSS3 ability which I place just above the closing head element(</head>)
Code: Select all
                   <!-- this is to give IE html5 tag info -->
    <!--[if IE]>
      <script>
        document.createElement("header" );
        document.createElement("footer" );
        document.createElement("section");
        document.createElement("aside"  );
        document.createElement("nav"    );
        document.createElement("article");
        document.createElement("hgroup" );
        document.createElement("time"   );
       document.createElement("video" );
        document.createElement("audio"   );
      </script>
      <noscript>
         <strong>Warning !</strong>
         Because your browser does not support HTML5, some elements are simulated using JScript.
         Unfortunately your browser has disabled scripting. Please enable it in order to display this page.
      </noscript>
   <![endif]-->



Feel free to visit my web site, http://www.mirana.net have a look around, I have in the multimedia section a button that will let you view the coding used for a specific section or use

Thanks mapleleaf, looks like a lot of coding just to determine the presentation! Can you add more html style by determining if the user is using the latest version of e.g. Opera, and provide a redirect if the user is using a less able browser? I think the OS also makes a difference, as IE9 won't run on some older systems, whereas Firefox will.
Suggesting the user used the latest Firefox rather than IE6/7 though could get rather complicated.

You have to remember that my web site is in html5 therefore there isn't the need to exclude browsers other than <=IE7.

I test the pages with that all support html5; it is the degree of html5, its implementation and interpretation that differs between them
The DOM statement will give IE8 limited support for html5. I have been thinking of excluding IE8 for its poor support in html5.

You can easily check this out by visiting http://www.html5test.com for the different browsers.

    1. FF4.0.1, FF5.0ß3, FF6.0a2, FF7.0a2
    2. IE8, IE9, IE10(Platform Preview)
    3. Opera 11.50
    4. Safari 5.0.5
    5. Chrome 13.0.782
    6. Maxthon 3.1.1.900
