Opera 12 for Windows, Mac and Linux has been released. This is the first major update since Opera 11 was released in December 2011.
Good things happen to those who wait. We’re glad Opera 12 is finally here! This brand new version of Opera is filled with themes and a host of other features to play with, says the Opera team.
Opera 12 new features :
HTML5 Drag and drop. This feature allows you to drag items from your desktop to the browser and transfer them to online or cloud services.
Opera 12 is now easier to customize. New themes now give you an instant makeover and a new look to your browser.
It now provides 64-bit support. This makes Opera 12 faster and more secure. If you can make better use of your processor, you will get faster boot times and a better overall Opera experience.
Opera 12 can now access your camera so that websites can take a picture of you. The next time you need to create a photo from your profile, you won’t have to worry about uploading a photo from another location. You can ask Opera 12 to do this.
Introduction of Plugins Out-of-Process Plugins. Some plugins run separately on the Opera page. So, if a plugin crashes, Opera 12 won’t.
The new suggestions in the address bar should help you find exactly what you are looking for. Shortening the URL in the address field is also much better.
Hardware acceleration allows Opera 12 to render graphics with your graphics card (GPU).
This version deletes Opera Unite and Opera Widgets by default for new users.
Other characteristics are :
- Header support Do not follow
- CSS3 animations and transitions
- CORS support – Cross-origin resource sharing
- Add right-to-left script support (RTL)
- Improved language support (Persian, Urdu, Hebrew and Arabic)
- Windows and API tab.
