I had not talked about this browser and change the trend to bring good news.
The Opera web browser is the same way other browsers to implement acceleration hardware . However, in the case of the platform GNU / Linux , this is an important step if possible especially if we consider the problems faced by developers of Firefox to incorporate this technology, as we mentioned here .
Our hardware acceleration is a bit different from other browsers. As IE9 and Firefox 4, we have hardware acceleration on all operations but, unlike other browsers which only offer this acceleration in Windows Vista and Windows 7, our implementation runs on any OS with enough hardware support. This means that we have full hardware acceleration in Windows XP, Linux, Mac OS X and devices that support OpenGL ES and the current web-enabled smart phones and TVs.
