Now here is something for Opera users to play with, as Norwegian browser maker has recently released a public build of Opera that finally supports hardware acceleration.
Although it’s just a preview (not intended for daily use) and available for Windows users only, company promises that their standards based canvas implementation will also work with Linux or Mac OS X operating systems. Now isn’t that nice?
How is that possible?
Opera has decided to use WebGL (Web-based Graphics Language) which essentially allows running hardware acceleration not only on computers, but also on mobile phones or even TVs as long as they support OpenGL 2.x.
That means you have to have a compatible video card and drivers to enable such feature.
