Today, Opera Software released Opera Turbo. It’s a server-side optimization and compression technology that provides significant improvements in browsing speeds over limited-bandwidth connections by compressing network traffic.
I downloaded and installed it right away. When I installed it — on Windows platform, it’s identified as Opera/10.00 (Windows NT 5.1; U; Edition Turbo; en) Presto/2.2.0. I already had Opera 9.64. I do not have to overide my current installation. So, there are two version of Opera browsers now.
Using this Opera Turbo, we can cut the cost of browsing when we are on a pay per usage plan. It will compress the website contents so we will download a smaller page size. It’s available for testing right now and will be available as part of Opera Desktop versions. Interested? You can download it right away.
