The Opera Web browser Version 10 has just been released. Part of its new functionality is called 'Turbo', which speeds up web browsing. Whilst this makes browsing faster, it also means that less data is downloaded, which can reduce costs for those on limited monthly download internet services. This is a browser for desktop/laptop computers, including Microsoft and Linux, as well as Apple. There is a separate browser for most mobile phones, called Opera Mini, which has similar benefits (it's now the world's most used browser from mobile phones).
*Turbo needs to be activated, set as auto, on or off, as you wish, it doesn't magically speed browsing speed and cut data charges if you don't set it to. There's a small speedometer in the bottom left of your screen, click it to set it up*
Both pc and mobile versions are free products, have full security standards compliance, and have market leading features that other browsers are following or don't have yet.
The download is less than 10Mb, much smaller than the rest, fast without Turbo mode and worth a try to give it a shot. The Turbo mode will be particularly blazing fast for dial up internet users, and slow broadband connections. You can turn Turbo on and off with a click of a button, or set it to Auto, to activate itself when it detects a slower network - or just use it when you wish to save data costs, including use of connection from a laptop via a mobile phone connection. This is invaluable as additional data charges can be extortionate on some packages.
So - an option for home pc use - Opera 10, or for browsing from a mobile - Opera Mini
