Mobile 10 and the Opera Widgets Mobile Emulator on your desktop - Opera Developer Community By Patrick H. Lauke DEPRECATED: This article is deprecated, and a newer article with updated information is available at Opera mobile emulator for desktop. You should read this one if you want updated information. Making sure that your site looks great and works exactly as it should in mobile browsers can often be a tedious process. Previously, if you wanted to test and debug your mobile-friendly sites in Opera Mobile, you either needed a physical phone or some form of virtual machine emulating the whole mobile operating system. In addition to the Web browser, our package also includes the Opera Widgets Mobile Emulator, a desktop version of our Opera Widgets manager for Symbian and Windows Mobile. This article covers: Download Opera Mobile 10 for Windows, Linux and Mac Screen sizes Mobile phones come in varying shapes and sizes. So, if we wanted to run Opera Mobile 10 as a keypad device with FWVGA (Full-WVGA with 16:9 aspect ratio) in portrait orientation, we'd use the following commands: .

Mozilla cracks down on slow starting Firefox add-ons Firefox's expandability through add-ons is often cited as a key feature of the browser, but it is also known to be a source of sluggish performance and slow startup times, particularly when running several add-ons simultaneously. Things have notably improved with the release of Firefox 4, but there's still work to be done, and as such Mozilla is starting an initiative to get add-on makers to optimize their programs. According to Mozilla's Justin Scott, Product Manager for Add-Ons, the average Firefox extension increases startup time by about 10%. The actual impact in seconds will depend on the hardware and software a user is running, but the company estimates that installing 10 add-ons will double the amount of time it takes the browser to launch. To that end the company will begin running automated performance tests on the top 100 add-ons and post the results here on a weekly basis.

Ten Essential Linux Admin Tools Every good Linux System Administrator has a set of tools they reach for again-and-again. Here are ten must haves for your virtual utility belt. System Administrators (SAs) need a set of tools with which to manage their often unmanageable systems and environments*. These ten essential Linux administration tools provide excellent support for the weary SA. Those listed aren’t your standard list of tools deemed essential by industry bystanders. These are tools that have proven track records and have stood the test of time in the data center. Webmin – Webmin is the ultimate web-based management platform for Linux and several other operating systems. * It’s unfortunate that no set of tools exist to manage the unmanageable users in our midst. Kenneth Hess is a Linux evangelist and freelance technical writer on a variety of open source topics including Linux, SQL, databases, and web services.

local host adress for android simulator: WURFL Why IE9 is a Web Designer’s Nightmare Web professionals have been getting pretty excited lately, and it’s no surprise why. The latest spawn of Microsoft’s browser, Internet Explorer 9, has just been released. Many people have been talking about the changes and whether the latest version is a solid step forward, or if it’s too little, too late. In a previous article, Jacob Gube (this site’s founder) had a more positive view of IE9. My Rocky Relationship with IE9 After waking up one morning and checking out my Twitter feed, I spotted a tweet that got me pretty excited: The first release candidate for IE9 had launched! Now, among web designers, I am probably one of the most skeptical of IE — we’ll skip the IE6 jokes for now — but this time around, I had a great beta experience and saw so much good work. I quickly downloaded it and began the installation process. So far, things were turning out better than I’d hoped. If my webcam had been turned on, this is the expression you would have seen. Internet Explorer Is Improving

Mondo Rescue - GPL disaster recovery solution Opera localhost A tale of two viewports — part one Page last changed today In this mini-series I will explain how viewports and the widths of various important elements work, such as the <html> element, as well as the window and the screen. This page is about the desktop browsers, and its sole purpose is to set the stage for a similar discussion of the mobile browsers. Most web developers will already intuitively understand most desktop concepts. The first concept you need to understand is CSS pixels, and the difference with device pixels. Device pixels are the kind of pixels we intuitively assume to be “right.” If you give a certain element a width: 128px, and your monitor is 1024px wide, and you maximise your browser screen, the element would fit on your monitor eight times (roughly; let’s ignore the tricky bits for now). If the user zooms, however, this calculation is going to change. Zooming as implemented in modern browsers consists of nothing more than “stretching up” pixels. A few images will clarify the concept.
