    Turn Off/On Opera 12 Hardware Acceleration and WebGL

    For everyone who has an old graphics card these tips can be very useful:

    To disable Hardware Acceleration
    visit opera:config#UserPrefs there set EnableHardwareAcceleration = 0.
    Use 2 to force it and 1 to enable ha.

    Same with WebGl

    opera:config#UserPrefs and there EnableWebGL=0 (2 to force, 1 to enable it back)

    I've tried setting them to 2 with my netbook (blocked) and the IGP (says it is unknown) but didn't made any differences and still works in software mode.
    I reported in the official blog but no response. Maybe those GPUs aren't capable at all :confused:

    I am really happy about the introduction of the OOPP builds (out-of-process plugins); what that means is that plugin crashes will not crash Opera anymore.

    Also, note that those are Labs builds and not from the Dekstop team, so they might not be as stable.

    I still can't decide if I should stay on the older version or upgrade to 12. It just has too many bugs at the moment but I'm sure that the developers are working hard to fix them.

    Hm strange. It works pretty fine here. Google news, yahoo news and any other heavy sites load fine and never crash. Which version do you use 32 or 64 bit? :confused:
    Maybe it's flash problem.

    I remember I had a lot of crashes with Opera 11 alpha and beta but with 12 everything seems to be in order.

    Been using since 2006. Opera just seems to do things the right way. The only problem I have seen is sometimes there are small incompatibilities.

    Totally agree. Just a small hiccup with some vids and loading of some pages. Its been about 3 years for me. I like Speed Dial.

    I am using Opera 12.10 in Windows and Mac, and Opera Mobile 12 in my Android phone and it's awesome, IMO better than the rest, I have used Opera since 7.11 but made some switches back and forth to Firefox and Chrome and came back to Opera after version 12 was released.

    Hadn't any compatibility issues in the mobile and desktop versions, but in the Android version some mobile-made sites look a bit awkard.

    Opera 12.12 released

    32-bit

    64-bit

    Holy cow, it's awesome :D Sometimes it uses less than 99MB on heavy sites. No memory leak at all!

    No you won't lose nothing, like pigulici said. And you can sync or export/import your settings/bookmarks anytime. Beta versions used to be unstable time after time but 12.12 final is tough as nails.
