With all these innovations in Opera 12 will be possible to significantly speed up common Web environment, as well as provide an acceptable rate of sites with rich graphics. The developers have resulted in a blog several examples WebGL standard sites, including the game Emberwind.
Opera 12.00 has support for hardware acceleration and WebGL. Like Chrome, the browser uses OpenGL for acceleration. Added support for DirectX and Direct2D. In support OpenGL, there is one big and a distinct advantage. This cross-platform technology, so the hardware acceleration will not only work in Windows, as is the case when using DirectX, but also in Mac OS X, Linux, smartphones and televisions with the browser Opera. IE9 in this respect is much more limited. It only works on Windows, and it supports only the last two versions of the system (Windows Vista and Windows 7).
Support WebGL is a good bonus, but this technology to create 3D scenes in the browser yet few people use the Internet, so for normal users it will provide interest except that in the near future.
