Opera Turbo is a compression solution, similar to its Opera Mini, which will be usable on the desktop with Opera and also for Opera Mobile. It reduced data transfer by up to 80%, thereby speeding up browsing.Â By taking the processing load onto Operaâ€™s servers it will also allow low-end devices to enjoy a good web experience and fully supports dynamic Web technologies such as Ajax and Flash.
In a press releaseÂ Jon von Tetzchner, CEO, Opera Software said “We are living in a time and place where access to the Web should be a universal right to all. Technology has advanced us to the point that we can very nearly access the Internet anytime and anywhere from a growing number of devices,”,Â “As part of Opera’s commitment to provide the best experience on any device, Opera has developed the Opera Turbo solution.â€
The service is to be demonstrated at Mobile World Congress, and is to be sold to cell phone carriers and OEMâ€™s as a way to conserve resources and provide end users with a good web experience independent of the hardware or network conditions.
