OPERA 26 VS FIREFOX 34
"We compare Opera 26 to Firefox 34 to find out which is the fastest browser when using Html5, Octane, Peacekeeper and Sunspider with Operating System Windows XP and AMD Athlon X2 270 CPU. The reason we are still using Windows XP because we want to show that although Microsoft will no longer support Windows XP there are still secure browsers not made by Microsoft which do support Windows XP. We are using a basic AMD Athlon x2 270 which is dual core to show that non Microsoft browsers are also very fast even with limited CPU Power and Video Card Power."
OPERA 26 FEATURES
"Opera 26 is for Windows and Mac versions of Opera make for a fast, safe and fun web browsing experience. Our latest offering is Opera 26. If you are already running Opera you will receive an update."
"Opera 26 we made the jump to using Aura, a technology that allows us to hardware accelerate the entire browser, including the user interface. The team here put a lot of effort into getting Aura to work properly with Opera and the benefits are already paying off. Aura allows for smoother, snappier animations with a more responsive feel. So far, we have only scratched the surface of this technology, and Opera 26's primary intention was to get Aura working and stable. In the future, you will see further benefits as it allows us to give everything that little extra bit of polish!"
"Opera 26 Address field option might seem small but we feel we should highlight it, as it has often been requested. We now provide an option to make Opera show a page's complete url in the address field."
"Opera 26 has simplified url field is the best option. We have removed all of the distracting clutter, focusing on the most important information (the domain) and use a small badge to show a page's security. Doing so helps users to quickly and simply identify that the site that they are browsing is the one they expect. It makes it a lot harder for the bad guys to trick you!"
