Notable Opera Features and when they arrived

Recently updated to add the significant changes that arrived for Opera 38 and 39.  It looks like 40 will be out soon as well.

It should be noted that Opera features history and Changelogs have not been updated since version 37 so for the time being it will be a little more important to keep up with Notable Opera Features and when they arrived.  

Hot cases to watch part 3

Notable Opera Features and when they arrived

Converted the page to a table view.  Today, 9/15/15, Opera came out with a nice new release adding and upgrading many new features that I have been looking forward to for a while now.

Update 1/19/16: Revised the notes for Opera Beta/Developer notes and separated them into Beta version and Developer version.

Update 3/15/16: Recently updated with Opera 36.  There is only one note for this version of Opera: Redesign of speed dial, but it is an amazing improvement over recent versions.  It is the best since version 32 came out.

Updated the Articles page to list tags vertically.

I'm not the biggest fan of how it looks, but it is more convenient this way.

I'm still learning how to use three monitors and how to best utilize them as well as the quirks involved with using three monitors.  It was only just today that I learned how to play Lord of the rings online and Star Wars: Knights of the Republic in full screen mode.  I'll try to write a short explanation on how to do that soon (I hope).

Adding the third monitor certainly was an improvement over the two monitor setup I had for a day or two.  The edges of the display stretch a little the further to the right and the left that you go, but this is by design for these two games.  Three monitors gives these games a rather 3D effect.

I am now using two monitors with my new 1060 graphics card.  I did have a period of buyer's remorse because this is a significant upgrade and was a fair amount of money even though there were nice deals on the monitors and card.  Despite the amount of research I did before purchasing these and consulting before buying everything there was still a good deal of risk involved.  I won't be able to hook up the third monitor until tomorrow.

The following are my initial observations:

  • The new monitors are of significantly lower quality than my Acer 27" monitor, but the quality of the new monitors is perfectly fine for me and probably most people.  In particular my old Acer has had the brightness and color factor turned down to about half.  It I didn't it would be painfully bright.  The Samsung has been turned up to about 100% on most settings in order to look nearly the same as the Acer.

  • The video card handles most everything including swtor with two monitors beautifully.  I am eager to see what three monitors look like.

  • There is a bit of a learning curve for how to best utilize two monitors, but I am beginning to see the benefits of having one monitor for reading and another for watching videos or one monitor for gaming and another for surfing the web.

  • With two monitors the visual real estate for the eyes really adds a beautiful level of immersion that is hard to describe unless you are actually using it.  The divider in the middle is somewhat annoying though.  It should be quite different with three monitors.

If I were to continue to upgrade my computer I would get a monitor stand, a SDD, a new case with a clear side, and possibly a desk.

version 7.3 build 0

Filed under:website — vanderjagt.dc @ 10:42 PM

  1. The site is now mobile friendly.
  2. Added some css to the admin page for managing tags and linked the “number of times used” numbers to the tag itself.
  3. search feature updated to 5.8 to display two alternate dashes and the possessive single quote correctly in the search results.
  4. Removed the ID# that was listed before each news post result.

Making the site mobile friendly is actually a large change which prompted the move to 7.3. I still have some refinements I want to make to the layout, but these should mostly be quite minor in comparison. Upcoming changes include making the admin pages mobile friendly, refining the layout for a few content edit pages, continue to make the site more mobile friendly and to load faster.
