Norway's Opera Software is following up on their recent mobile success by rolling out upgrades for their desktop browser that take two of their most popular features, Opera Turbo and Speed Dial, and make them better. VP of Desktop Products, Jan Standal, ntoed:
Opera 11.10, codenamed "Barracuda", can boost browsing speeds by up to four times its previous capabilities by reducing the size of webpages before he user loads them, using Opera Turbo.
The Opera Turbo feature is crucial for anyone who travels or just has a slow Internet connection. By reducing the size of the page, we can make browsing so much faster. So whether you're at a crowded Starbucks in San Francisco or are using a 3G modem in Sri Lanka, Opera Turbo can give you a better browsing experience.
Another upgraded feature, Speed Dial, grants the user now unlimited number of pages to "dial", making it easier to get to the pages that you always want to see, no matter where you are. Speed Dial brings with it other customization features, like layout customizations and improved zoom functions.
Opera also offers now seamless plug-in installation that downloads necessary plug-ins in the background of your web experience, and is available in 50 languages, including Tagalog. Here's their new promotional video demonstrating some of the new stuff Opera can do:
