Opera Turbo mode, for those with a need for speed? Krish Advani 27/05/2013 Engineering Opera is a web browser which was developed by Opera software in the mid 90´s, when then competition was low. Famous web browsers such as Chrome and Firefox were not even released when this was already becoming one of the most used web browser. This browser is compatible with almost every platform I can think of, Mac OSX, Windows, Linux, FreeBSD, Android, iOS, you name it. But as the years past by, this browser started losing its popularity, since the competitors started implementing new features that made the users to change their default web browser. Nonetheless, Opera always tries to stay in business. So, they updated their web browser giving it a new design and a new unique feature that non of us had ever seen before. This feature is called as Turbo Mode. This feature is built right into the web browser and no addition software is required of this to operate. It is just like a race button in a sports car, it increases the responsiveness and the over all speed of the web browser. This feature can be turned on or off by pressing the speedometer icon in the add-on bar of the browser. But once might as, how fast?. It boosts your speed over four times more faster than it used to before. Web pages load seamlessly. Do keep this in mind that this will not buffer your videos faster, but it will certainly load the web pages much more rapidly. Here is a video demonstrating the Turbo Mode feature of the Opera web browser: So, what are you waiting for?. Go ahead and try it out yourself.
