We finally turned 1-year old!

Most importantly, we got cake!

Opera Coast has seen a lot since the early days. It all started with an idea by Huib Kleinhout, who was not satisfied with how the browsers looked on his iPad.

So he and some other developers locked themselves in a room for a month, and came out with Opera Coast. Huib went on to call it “The browser that should have come with the iPad”.

image

From then on we saw winter.

image

We saw summer.

image

We saw conflicts.

image

We saw awards.

image

We saw Opera Coast for iPhone.

image

And now, we see cake.

image

We hope that you still enjoy our browser, and we would like to thank you for sticking with us. 

By the way, here’s the music we listened to while making Opera Coast:

The infamous number 13 and other updates

Today, we released an update for Opera Coast. Originally, it was supposed to be version 3.13, but we skipped that and went straight 3.14.

image

The reason for this was to avoid the infamous number 13. Oh! Also, Donald Duck’s license plate is 313 and we don’t want to get in any trouble. But, mainly we just want to avoid bad luck.

image

As you can see, we were able to fix some bugs, and improved landscape orientation and security warnings.

We have yet to experience any bad luck, but we think there is someone out there trying to force it on us. Black cats keep crossing our path. Horseshoes hang upside down in the buildings across the street. And there are tons of umbrellas opened up indoors.

image

We’ll do our best to avoid these traps, and keep bringing you the best browser for iPhone and iPad.

We would also like to point out that 3.14 is the number for Pi. So, go now. Have a slice and relax with Opera Coast π.

Opera Coast 3.10

Hello, we’re the Opera Coast interns.

image

With the Opera Coast Team away for a couple weeks, we’ve decided to take matters into our own hands.

Our first order of business was to release a minor, but important, update: Opera Coast 3.10. Our philosophy when it comes to product development is that change is made by small improvements. We say: Let’s bring an evolution to the table, not a revolution.

This is why we’ve decided to release an update so small you probably won´t even notice it. Here are some of the new features we’ve been working on, which are available in Opera Coast 3.10.

image

A wise man once said, “Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” 

Ted and Greg wish to see small improvements. 

While Opera Coast is already an amazing product, we believe by making small improvements Opera Coast will one day reach Optimal Product Marketing Synergy Between Products. Many of you may know this by its extremely popular street name: OPMSBP. Few companies ever reach OPMSBP but we believe we can.

Join the evolution.

Going on vacation; meet the interns

Hi all,

We’re going on our summer break. It’s been amazing creating Opera Coast and getting it off the ground this year. Thanks for all your support and feedback!

image

Things won’t be quiet around here. Our two interns, Ted and Greg, will answer any questions you have for the next couple of weeks. They’ve been working very hard the past month, and have brought up some pretty interesting ideas.

We asked them to write something about themselves, but they both just gave terrible quotes.

Ted- “By changing nothing, nothing changes”-Tony Robbins

Greg- “Islands are natural workshops of evolution.”-Richard Dawkins

Here’s a picture of them in the now empty office

Cheers,

The Opera Coast Team

We crushed some bugs

Opera Coast gets updated to 3.02 today.

This is mainly a stability update with some small bug fixes that were found as the winter darkness in Norway passed.

And thanks to Łukasz Pilorz from runic.pl for finding and responsibly reporting an issue with Opera Coast. In some cases a malicious actor would be able to replace parts of a secure site, without Opera Coast warning the user. This issue has now been fixed.

We’re sorry

This tour bus driver let the band wait for hours. He lost track of time and his responsibility. It’s all Opera Coast’s fault.

We heard it’s happening everywhere. Sorry about that.

Opera Coast: It’s a browser, but a damned cool one.

Throw away your expectations. Browsers have been the same for 20 years and their conventions get in the way. You’ll enjoy Opera Coast so much that you’ll start wondering why you haven’t had a browser like this before.

Make browsing exciting. Everyone loves the iPhone and iPad for its graphics and quick animations. Your browser should feel the same way.image

Stay up-to-date with the sites you love or stumble all the way out to the edge of the net. Search the web, and, while you type, we’ll suggest some sites for you.image

And here’s a sweet addition:
If you already have Opera Coast on your iPad, your home-screen tiles will be synced in your iPhone. You can do this by using the automatic iCloud sync of site tiles in Opera Coast.

Look, it’s a browser – but a damned cool one.
