Opera Presto rendering engine

This document and its associated support tables apply specifically to the Opera Presto 2.9 rendering engine. It incorporates Opera Presto web specification support with the latest Core Milestone and integration point. Changes and additions occurring since Opera Presto 2.8 are identified with their specific Core Milestone integration points. Please see the following Core Milestone integration points added since Opera Presto 2.8 topic.

Opera desktop, device, and mobile products

Opera products use and depend upon various parts of the Opera Presto rendering engine and its web specification features. It is important to note that while the latest Opera Presto rendering engine has incorporated new web specification features, they may not have been added to the latest released versions of Opera products.

The Opera user agent string

Opera products will identify which Opera Presto version and core-integration-point they are using in their user agent string. Depending on your Opera product, the Opera user agent string is placed in the "About Opera" page, found by typing opera:about in the address bar, or by clicking "Help > About Opera" in the Menu.
