How To: Install Opera Mobile on Nokia N9

Nokia N9 already has a built-in internet browser. It’s not the best, but it works. I like having some browsers for my Nokia N9, and currently I have Firefox Mobile and Opera Mobile installed. Both browsers (Firefox Mobile and Opera Mobile) are not available from Ovi Store. If you’re using Symbian for your Nokia, you can download Opera Mini. Firefox is not yet supported.
I’m not considering the installation process as something difficult. Yes, it’s not like the regular installation procedures. It’s my first-time experience too. So far, everything works without any issue at the moment. For Opera Mobile installation, I just follow the installation tutorial from Nokia N9 Fans Club. It’s an unofficial site, not maintained by Nokia.

Now, let me share a bit about how I installed Opera Mobile. Anyway, my N9 is running MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan with software version PR1.1 (20.2011.40-2_PR_005). And, if you’re not familiar with command line, you can continue reading.

Zeldman on IE 6



IE6 is the new Netscape 4. The hacks needed to support IE6 are increasingly viewed as excess freight. Like Netscape 4 in 2000, IE6 is perceived to be holding back the web.

Google Chrome's Incognito Mode



chrome incognito

Google Chrome offers another type of window/browsing mode called “incognito mode”. When we’re using Google Chrome in incognito mode page information (website addresses, downloaded files will not be stored/logged in our browsing and download histories. And, when we close the “incognito window”, all new cookies will be deleted right away.

Read mode details about incognito mode at Google Chrome Help page.

In simple definition, it means we can use incognito for more private browsing. It’s about information on your side, not server’s. If the server logs your data (IP address, user agents, etc), your data will be recorded.

But, I don’t regularly — well, almost never — use it. My main reason is because I’m using Google Chrome — and other browsers — in a private computer. And, sometime browsing histories are useful. The download histories, too.

Web Browsers' Homepage Designs




I only visit web browsers’ sites when I want to download — sometime, I don’t even have to go to their sites to get updates — or, only when someone/something refers me to an address in those sites. Those are some possibilities. Their websites have beautiful designs, and sometime can be a great inspiration. :)

So, here are some screenshots. I like their designs as inspirations. Not in a particular order:

Mozilla Firefox 3.0.6

Yesterday, my Firefox browser applied an update. It’s now 3..0.6. Anyway, I set my Firefox to check for updates, just to make sure that I always have the updated version — including extensions. If you haven’t upgraded, you can do it.

Trojan for Firefox: Trojan.PWS.ChromeInject.A




Here are a news about trojan from Greasemonkey — a Firefox addon. It is identified by BitDefender.

BitDefender has identified this new bit of holiday cheer as Trojan.PWS.ChromeInject.A” (the ChromeInject suffix refers to the Chrome component of Firefox). The trojan installs itself into Firefox’s add-on directory, registers itself as Greasemonkey, and begins searching your hard drive for passwords, login details, your World of WarCraft account information, and your library card number.
Please note, this trojan is not actually the Greasemonkey add-on, and only identifies itself as such. Mozilla has confirmed that the official Greasemonkey release contained within Mozilla’s own extension repository (and available here) is malware-free. If you’re currently using Greasemonkey or are interested in doing so, there’s no reason to avoid the legitimate add-on at this time, so long as you download it from Mozilla’s page or an equally trusted source.
Source

What does this trojan do?

Once installed, the trojan is capable of identifying over 100 web sites. When an infected user visits a site the trojan recognizes, the parasite comes to life and records the login/password details being transmitted. Presumably it then goes back to sleep, quietly keeping an eye on further system activity.

Opera 9.6





I just upgraded my Opera to the latest version, Opera 9.6. Read the changelog for details. Here are some highlights:

  • Opera Link — any website address you typed in one computer will be available in all your other computers.
  • Feed Preview — we can see feed content before subscribing to it.
  • Speed Enhancement — I like Opera because of its speed, it is said that this release is faster than before.
  • and more.

Also, now Opera is also available in Bahasa Indonesia. Go to Yeni’s blog for details. Of course, the language files still need improvements. But, it’s a good start. Go to Opera website to download.

Pushup: Encourage others to upgrade their browsers



I just added some Javascript file and CSS in this blog. You probably will notice them, or not. You will not see something different in this page if you’re using an updated internet browser. But, if you’re still using old browsers, you should see a notification — it’s on the upper right of the browser window — telling you about your browser status (updated or outdated).
Pushup : Pushing up the web
Anyway, I got this from Pushup campaign.

Pushup is an effort to push the web forward by helping users upgrade their outdated browsers. Give your users a better web experience today by installing Pushup on your domain! A subtle upgrade link is shown when people visit your website using an outdated browser. They can click this link to visit the upgrade website for that browser, or choose to be reminded after a time you specify.

The installation (adding Javascript and CSS) is easy. Go to Pushup website, and you will get everything you need to get it installed in your website/blog. Demo is also available there. Anyway, remember Browse Happy?
