Opera Mobile 12 was launched recently for the Google Android platform.
And Opera Software has updated their mobile emulator to add the new features in that edition.
Opera Mobile Emulator 12 is now available for you to test your websites on your desktops.
The app works on all the three major platforms: Windows, Mac and Linux.
Opera spoke about the update:
As this release goes hand in hand with Opera Mobile 12, we have upgraded the Presto rendering engine to Presto/2.10.254.
We’ve added a -displayzoom argument, which you can use to display the full browser window at a percentage of its original size. This is useful when the Opera Mobile instance you spawn has a larger height than the height of your computer and you want to make it fit: e.g. the HTC Desire profile triggers Opera Mobile to have a size of 480×800px, but my MacBook Pro’s dock and menu bar reduces this to be 480×702px, distorting the profile’s proportions. By using -displayzoom 80, the browser is rendered at 384×640px (preserving the aspect ratio), but the browser still behaves as if it was 480×800px.
You can now use again pinch gestures on your Mac trackpad to zoom in and out.
Support for a number of common desktop shortcuts: tab and shift+tab to navigate between form elements, backspace to go to the previous page, ctrl/cmd+a to select all text in an input field, etc.
Updated profiles in the launcher.
Various bug fixes.
The company warns that some features do not work inside the emulator like video, audio and getUserMedia.
