Opera Is Moving to WebKit


Browser maker Opera is joining the ranks of Google and Apple and embracing the WebKit rendering engine.
The company made the announcement in conjunction with news that Opera now reaches 300 million monthly users across its various browser products.
Web browsers rely on rendering engines to translate code into the visual text and display you see on your desktop, tablet or phone. Mozilla uses the Gecko rendering engine for Firefox, Microsoft uses Trident for Internet Explorer and Google and Apple use WebKit for Chrome and Safari. Historically, Opera has relied on its own Presto rendering engine for its browsers.
That's all going to change.
The company says it will move to WebKit slowly, first with its Opera Mobile browser and then, over time to its other products, including Opera for the desktop.
Opera will be showing off its first WebKit-based efforts at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona later this month with a preview of its next Android web browser.

Why Change?

In a blog entry that expanded on the rationale behind the rendering engine change, "Haavard" from Opera expressed his feelings this way:
Yes, monoculture is bad, but Opera was never really in a position to prevent it in the first place. Even with Opera as the dominant mobile browser and more than 300 million active Opera users in total across all platforms, web developers still designed just for WebKit.
If switching to WebKit allows us to accelerate our growth and become an important contributor to the project (we will contribute back to WebKit, and have already submitted our first patch (bug)), we may finally have a direct impact on the way web sites are coded. We want sites to be coded for open standards rather than specific browsers.
At the very least, there will be more competition in the browser space, and competition is always good news.
The reality is that WebKit is already the de facto rendering engine for mobile, thanks to its support by Apple (who leads the WebKit project) and Google. BlackBerry also uses WebKit for its browsers both for BlackBerry 10 and the older BlackBerry OS.
I've written about the problems that can happen on other platforms — such as Windows Phone 8 — when mobile developers target WebKit and only WebKit.
When a website doesn't render correctly on a device, the user's first instinct isn't to blame the person that coded the website, it's to blame the person who made the web browser. To that end, Opera will now have an easier time encouraging users to adopt its platform and will have to do less work to ensure compatibility with other rendering engines.

Is This a Good Thing?

While Opera's decision to move to WebKit makes sense from a business and user perspective, what does this say about the future of the web and web standards in general?
After all, we've seen what can happen when developers and designers become too complacent and focused on one platform at the risk of all others: The world gets stuck with IE 6.
I'm certainly not conflating the situation that was prolonged IE 6 penetration with WebKit's dominance in the browser space; but it is a good reminder that focusing too much on one platform can be risky.
We'll be discussing the larger issues surrounding this switch in a future post.
What do you think of Opera's decision to switch to WebKit? Let us know in the comments.

Birds Tweet too?


Yesterday when my six-year-old son asked me the spelling of ‘tweet’, I told him to check an online dictionary. What he began to read shocked me. It said, “A message put on Twitter by people”. Don’t believe me? Check for yourself on Cambridge Dictionary website. This got me thinking, what our vocabulary has come to? How regressive am I?

Just a few years ago (or they seem to me) word ‘virus’ made me think about flu. I was still learning about viruses and antivirus (I already knew there was none for flu) when came bugs, worms, Trojans and bots. I realized the problem has not only transformed into something big but somehow managed to change its genus too.

Just before the spread of digitalism, mention of memory was made onlywhen you were over 50 and began losing it. When asked about status, it meant your marital one, or could take away the colour from your face if you were an immigrant and thought you were being asked about residency status. These days, it means what you say on your Facebook page. If you change it as soon as you have a fight with your spouse, you should start looking for marriage counselor already. Display used to be what shop owners put in front of their shops. Apparently now it is why your teenager wants a new iPad.

I cannot say anything against abbreviations used in text messages these days. After all, it gives me all the mental exercise I need. I memorized LOL, OMG, ILU, BRB, early on but for some chat lingo like TGIF, I still have to ponder.

Don’t get me wrong, I am all for technology. I let my kindergartner son use my laptop after all. I asked him to search for the meaning of an easy word on Internet. I could tell him myself but I wanted to introduce him to technology and the funny thing is he was able to do it easily.

So keep on texting, googling, skyping, tweeting, facebooking or WDIK (what do I know), but once in a while turn off all your toys and try listening to birds because they tweet too.

Google's pursuit of "high-quality" sites - the role of the content.

With a huge increase in the importance of Google released the Panda update in February last year, with high-quality content on your site.
Amit Saudi Schmitt, in May 2011, aims to help people build a better quality site. One of the most important take away from it, I'm sure you've guessed, good quality content. Here, I want to go into detail, some of his score and explain what you really need to do, if you want to get a better ranking.
One of the key issues of growing up and authoritative. The issues raised, including whether to believe that the readers information provided in the article, the site is considered to be the authority of the topic being discussed.
In other words, your website is a reliable place, this content? Obviously, if you focus on auto sales, you can not write to the garden, but this point is more than this a step further. For example, if you are selling a car, then you are a suitable place to release information, repair and maintenance of the engine? Although the field is related to, and they are closely linked. Therefore, the content is actually irrelevant sites. A certain amount of mileage or to a certain age, the reliability of some of the cars is more appropriate. This is because your site has actual knowledge, engine maintenance would be better suited in the garage or the project website.
Insist on talking about backing up your content actually contains some useful details, rather than just generalities, your content is written by an expert, or at least a knowledgeable enthusiasts and it covers the topics to provide a comprehensive discussion . All of this is of course easier to achieve, if you and your company to choose the subjects you have real knowledge production.
Summary: write to you and your company a real understanding of the topic, you should be able to easily hit all these goals.
Setting quality standards
Next, Google hopes to produce readable. It allows you to generate content, editing, grammar is accurate, true and correct. I hope you consider the piece whether printed in a magazine, or published in a book or encyclopedia.
Basically, Google wants you to ensure that your production works, actually has some value, real effort put into their creation. They sharply rebuked the mass production, and did not receive high-quality articles need proper care and attention. Therefore, put some thought and attention to your content. Consider the value of each piece - you can get it to publish on the web anywhere? Make sure you take the time to thoroughly proofread and edited everything - to get rid of all the spelling errors and clean up the sloppy introduction.
Google that the content is important and valuable, so you need to start it as every piece you publish some real time and effort. To set high standards for yourself and stick to them.
Not only to provide real-time insight into the information
Finally, Google wants you to consider whether your content will be what it means to you readers. Provide you with interesting and original information? It provides insightful analysis, new information, or a well-balanced debate on the topic? If not, then what meaning does it?
You need to make sure that you create a reason to exist. Production content of the theme has been done to death, unless you look at it from a new angle, or you bring fresh information table is pointless. You need to do, because to do so, you will encourage people to share it - this is a very great importance to the height of Google. Recommend your content, and the best way is to make a new, useful, or interesting, or best of all three! So, do not re-hash of old material, and be innovative. One thing to note, though: Do not attack. Although somewhat controversial, can allow people to read and share your article, Google will warn you to create what the offensive, which may cause people to complain.
So, is this. This is Google's proposal, really, this is not the requirement. Their value, because the value of Internet users. All they want you to do the same. This is to stop and stop agitation lazy, poorly written, bad research, unhelpful, and related articles. Began to put some real effort in the content on your site, and use it as it is a valuable commodity. To do so, you should not only improve your rankings, people who question your website - the user's actual value. This is a win-win situation!
