We’re busy here at css3.info! Our interview with H&kon was cool of course, but then Opera 9.5 was released and we had to update and add quite a few pages… Because all these pages were still static html, that was quite a bit of work. Tonight I took the time to move all of them into WordPress, and after I’d done that, I’ve refined the search function and results a bit, so it now shows the pages in the searches as well!
We’ll probably be adding new preview pages in the coming days, I’ve already updated the existing ones which Opera 9.5 supports now (cool, cool stuff, you should really have a look at it).
Ow and because of the many complaints about it, I removed the text-shadow from the text in the menu tabs.
You can skip to the end and leave a response.
Opera 9.5 is not released yet; and there is no official release date. The non-stable, non-production ready Opera 9.5 alpha 1 was released. There is a huge difference!
I really liked the text-shadow in the menu, now it’s back to being flat.
It only looked a bit bad if you didn’t have font smoothing enabled, but all text looks like crap without font smoothing so I don’t see what the big deal is. I really can’t stand using Windows without Cleartype these days.
The shadowed menus look great when you have font smoothing on.
Oh well, guess I’ll have to make a user stylesheet to return the nice stuff.
Yeah, I have to agree. Text-shadow was ok in navigation menu. What bugs me is those green headings with grey shadow. At least on my (old) monitor they are pretty hard to read.
And Opera 9.5 is incredibly fast and most importantly it is stable. Few bugs here and there. Nice job Opera!
To me, it looks like browser devs have been experimenting with new ways of rendering text without knowing what they where doing.
Because i think IE7 and Safari’s ways of rendering text is ugly, and i dont think the devs knew what they where doing when using it in official releases.
But perhaps its still unofficially in the “beta stage”, for some reason devs have a hard time admitting when somthing they made sucks.
Let alone the way some browsers render text-shadow, witch usually just makes the text harder to read.. /sigh
