Opera 10 Launches With Turbo Mode

Opera Software released on Tuesday the latest version of its browser, Opera 10, promising faster downloads, new design and new features.

Opera 10 is free, comes in 43 languages, and works on Windows, Mac and Linux platforms. It can be downloaded from

There are three major changes in the new Opera 10 browser:

Opera Turbo, a new compression technology that solves the pain of slow connections. The company claims that the Turbo feature packages web pages, makes the browser up to eight times faster than rival browsers in low connection speeds. If a network speed slows to a crawl, enabling Opera Turbo will allow users to browse the Web at broadband-like speeds. Opera Turbo will automatically detect when network speeds.

For Opera 10, the company also gave the browser a streamlined new interface.

The browser is also featuring better tabs. In Opera 10, userrs can resize their tab bar by pulling down on it or double-clicking the handle, revealing a surprise: Opera now shows full thumbnails of all your open tabs.

Opera 10 includes other refinements such as the Speed Dial, which has been emulated all over the Web. Have a large monitor? Turn your Speed Dial into a 5x5 grid. Other sizes are available, as well. If you have a favorite picture, you can use it as your Speed Dial?s background image.

Opera 10 also updates automatically, has a Spell Checker supporting 51 languages as well as a built-in e-mail client. Opera Mail gives users many options to organize, sort and search their mail and contacts.

"We fine-tuned our overall speed, making Opera faster and smoother on resource-intensive pages such as Gmail. Opera 10 is 40% faster in page loading than Opera 9.6 ... and that is before you activate Opera Turbo. Opera is designed not only to be light and fast, but also smart. Our adaptive memory management is optimized to work with your machine, conserving memory if your computer has less RAM and utilizing more memory to enhance performance if your computer has memory to spare," Opera said.

Web developers can also play with the newest update to Opera Dragonfly, a set of on-board, Web development tools. Opera Dragonfly, available in 36 languages, now allows users to edit the DOM and inspect HTTP headers.

Opera battles for the spot of third-largest browser maker with Google's Chrome and Apple's Safari, but is far behind Microsoft and Mozilla Foundation.

Microsoft's Internet Explorer is used for about 60 percent of global Internet traffic, and Mozilla's Firefox has about 30 percent, with usage of Opera, Google and Apple all around 3 percent each, according to Web analytics firm StatCounter.
