Continues with its fish codenames.
Now here is something to be excited about: the next release of the Opera web browser, codenamed “Marlin”.
Just today, Norwegian browser maker has revealed the very first build of Opera 12.50, which is still in the alpha/pre-alpha state. However, it does not mean that there are no new features for you to play with and although we expect to see more in the next few months, here is what you will see as of now:
- Clipboard API
- Updated key event handling to the DOM Events Level 3, which will improve the overall compatibility (and break some stuff in the short term).
- Webkit- CSS prefixes, something we have reported a while ago and is definitely a welcome step towards, again, better compatibility.
- Notification Center support for the upcoming Mac OS X 10.8 OS.
Overall, it looks like an impressive release, at least for those, who were bragging about the poor sites compatibility.
