Phoronix: Opera 12.10 Browser Improves Extensions
The Norwegians have released Opera 12.10 this morning. While Windows and Mac OS X improvements are the primary focus of improvements for this release, an updated Linux version is also available...
opera is awesome engineering
opera is awesome engineering. It uses only a single core. But its UI is completely separate from the layout.
Chrome does it by creating a different process for each tab, which is excessive IMHO. Each process can use a different core.
Firefox does nothing of this sort. Its UI and layout are tied togeher. So if a layout/JS is taking too long to process, the whole UI slows. Which is poor engineering .
The awesome thing about Opera is that it manages to do so using a sigle core only. Which is pretty big. Of course its closed source. But give credit where due.
