Opera to Turbo-Charge Mobile Browsing
Today Opera Software announced a new product that is meant to reduce data congestion and speed up browsing from the desktop as well as the mobile phone. According to Opera, Turbo is meant for network operators and handset manufacturers to deploy, it is not something that will be downloaded by end users. It uses Opera's latest compression techniques and server-side optimization solutions to reduce the size of web sites without transcoding them. It will support web technologies such as Ajax and Flash. Opera says that Turbo will work across Opera Desktop, Opera Mobile and Opera Devices SDK, and will result in improved browsing speeds even for entry-level handsets. The reduction in web site size will lead to less congestion on networks, and reduce wireless data charges.
