    Can somebody make it go over 2 GB ?, only reason I see benefit of 64 bit if it can actually go over 2 GB, I can make 11.64 go close to 2 GB.

      i see what you did here 

  • Ichann

    Holy shit. The CSS bug is gone.

    • Guy

      Which one ?

      • Ichann

        The one where the text would load before the CSS element.

          I like this behavior better. Text prioritized before CSS is awesome on slow connections.
          You get the actual content (text) faster, and can even stop the page and follow other link on it already. In other browsers you keep waiting in a blank screen for the CSS. This has aways been a top favorite behavior of Opera for me.

          • Ichann

            Yes I know. It was a favourite feature of mine from the get go. But enough as this feature had its uses (I had dialup for 5 years), it has overstayed its welcome. Turbo is what you should be using.

          • http://my.opera.com/rafaelluik Rafael

            No, with Turbo it’s slower than my connection (Turbo is for really bad connections, mine is faster than Turbo / slow enough to notice the difference to other browsers) and will blurry the images initially.

      I think that was fixed in the beta. I could be wrong.

      • Ichann

        I remember it was fixed in a release then re-introduced.

    I tried some WebGL samples and the browser crashed. When sending the crash report, it crashed again because of the same WebGL sample ¬¬

  • Ichann

    Wow. It starts faster too. I need to give it another shot

  • Firefoxer

    They didn’t implement auto-stack but there are two good extensions that kind of do the job – Autostack and Tabgrouper.
    Just tried it. Pretty good.

    Using Opera Next 64 bit your link Opera 12 Final (x86)  leads to the 64 bit version if I use Firefox I get the 32 bit version.
    What’s wrong with having the options to install either 32 bit or 64 bit on all the download pages.
    Opera used to be all about offering choices.

    • Yoyo

      Sorry I do not understand your question, you mean default Opera do not give you 32 bit or 64 bit option ?

  • Hello

    I would love to see those videos but Opera 12 is damn laggy when I try to see them or open a heavy site.

    I love all the support for 64 bits and HWA, but they should have been fixing the actual rendering of the sites, Opera is the slowest of all the browsers, actually slower than IE9.

    • hotteamix

      Something’s wrong with your installation.

  • lol

    Did you notice that hardware acceleration works very well  with FACEBOOK??????
