Opera 12 Features and Performance

Hi jamalia,
 
I appreciate you for raising your question to this site. You have come to the right site. Regarding your question about Opera 12, its features are the following:
 
1. It adds the ability for compliant websites to directly access the user’s webcam. Although not yet widely supported, a number of examples – a photo booth and Facekat game – are supplied by way of example. The idea is to prevent users from having to use a third-party application to access the webcam for browser-related activities such as updating a profile picture;
 
2. It has a theme support, allowing users to customize their browser window with a lightweight skin. These are accessible from the Opera > Appearance menu, and can be installed and switched between without having to restart the browser;
 
3. It has a security settings more visible by utilising colour-coded badges in the Address bar to help review a site’s privacy and security settings. There are improvements to the Address Field, including improved drop-down suggestions and smart URL shortening.
 
Its performance is better than other web browser because  it has better loading times and faster startup when many tabs are involved. It also introduces a dedicated 64-bit build for Windows and Mac users for the first time. Web standards support – particularly HTML5 and CSS3 – has also been updated.
 
I hope that have help answer your question.

Opera 12 Features and Performance

If you also love using the Opera browser like me, the latest version at the moment is Opera 37 and it supports Windows 7, Windows 8.x, and Windows 10. The last version to support Windows XP and Windows Vista is Opera 36. If you are using Opera 36, you will no longer receive feature updates like the latest version.

You are now only limited to receiving security and stability updates. As of Opera 37, some of the enhancements added include the following:

  • They’ve integrated the browser with ad blocker which should make the loading of web pages a lot faster.
  • They’ve also added video pop out feature which displays video in a floating frame that is always on top. This is probably somewhat similar to that of Maxthon’s video pop out feature.
  • It includes support for the latest Chromium/Blink 50 release.
  • It includes bug fixes and stability enhancements.
  • Other features include free VPN, news reader, currency converter, and battery saver.

For users who want to try the Opera browser, go to Opera for Windows. For Mac, go to Opera for Mac. For Linux, go to Opera for Linux.
