Opera Turbo is a test version of the browser that was once released by Opera developers. Unfortunately, it has not been further developed, as the Turbo function has become part of the main browser. As it is easy to guess from the name, the main advantage of this assembly is a very high speed of page loading. Turbo technology algorithms automatically compress the graphic elements on a web page (or delete them at all), which greatly accelerates the "surfing". In addition to speeding up page loading, this browser also helps to save traffic.
Since the support of Opera Turbo has been stopped, the browser has serious problems with the support of modern web standards, because some sites in it may not display correctly. The browser itself is also very unstable, and you may have serious problems with installing it on "fresh" versions of Windows. For example, Windows 10 Opera Turbo will definitely not work, so don't even waste time downloading it.
If we do not take into account the function of page acceleration, we still have the same "classic" Opera in the form in which it existed before the transition to the WebKit engine. At one time it was one of the most popular and advanced browsers, which supported such innovative (by then standards) features as mouse gesture navigation and full screen mode support.
Once again we warn you that this browser build is "raw". So if you're not ready for regular flights and bugs, you'd better use a modern Opera. The good thing is that it also has the Turbo function.
- Very high speed of loading web pages, which is achieved by compressing graphic elements;
- saving Internet traffic;
- ...the existence of a purely raw alpha version;
- problems with support for modern web standards and the latest versions of the Windows operating system;
- all the functions of the "classic" Opera (the one that was relevant before the version based on the WebKit engine).
