Opera 10 is hereSep 1st, 2009 | By admin | Category: Technology
Come one come all and fill your boots with delicious Opera goodness. While I’m slightly dissapointed than Synaptic didnt’ alert me with an update sooner and I have to download it from the website I’m holding back my ire in hopes that Opera 10 can finally do away with the horror that is Opera+Flash in a linux environment. With that hurdle crossed I will definitely switch 95% of my browsing to this far superior browser.
Why you ask?
Opera Turbo, new compression technology for slow connections which the company claims enables broadband-like speeds by instantly compressing pages. Opera says that in its own lab tests, Turbo provided up to eight times higher speeds.
“Opera Turbo is our newest innovation, and one we think everyone should try, because we all will face a slow connection at some point,” said Jon von Tetzchner, Opera’s CEO. “Now, there is a solution, and it is absolutely free.”
Now if you’ll excuse me I have a new toy to play with 🙂
