Opera Software Opera have announced the general availability of Opera 10 beta. Opera 10 includes an improved rendering engine Presto v2.2. The beta adds a new default skin and a couple of new features, notably "Turbo", a proxy compressor for dial-up users, and tab previews. The result? Complete fail. Read More for why and a quick screenshot tour. addendum: As an apology to the community for the reckless and inadequate review I will be doing it again, properly, taking into consideration your fine comments.

The turbo mode is probably the same as in opera mini. Same servers/code.

No. Opera Mini is rendered on Opera Servers, then transited the whole page compressed to the mobile phone - thus not only improving downloading speed\bandwidth as to speed up the webpage.

Opera Turbo compresses the text and sends it to your PC, and it also heavily compresses the images on the pages. Text usually appears right after you click a link. Javascript flows normally as if you open with Turbo off.
