Opera is launching a new edition of its Devices toolkit for building browsers that run on gaming machines, set-top boxes, and other places beyond garden variety PC and cell phone environments. Eariler versions of Opera Devices SDK 9.7 have been used to create browsers for Nintendo's Wii and a Sony Bravia TV, said an Opera official. The new kit also adds a module that allows developers to get the full benefits of Opera Dragonfly tools for easier development and debugging.

Through support for Opera Binary Markup Language (OBML), another new capability, developers will able to compress Web pages up to 90%, reduce bandwidth, and speed up browsing even on "limited device hardware," he maintained.
