What does Opera Turbo do?

“So, what does this do?” you ask yourself, as you pet your cat ever so gently. Well, my cat-loving friend, Opera Turbo saves data by compressing the pages you view.

Let’s give you an analogy of how we do this. Every character you see on the screen has a name. Say that the letter E is named “01000101”. E is one of the most common letters in the English language, so we change its name to “0101”, assigning it a shorter code. Now, displaying the letter E takes up half the data.

How does data compression help you get faster internet?

Data compression

We do our best to cut away unneeded data that a page tries to send you. Whether that’s in pictures, videos or text, we discard data that humans can’t see or hear and won’t miss.

Less data = faster loading times!

Thanks to Opera Turbo, there’s no more gradual loading of an image – line by line – or waiting for a spinning wheel. Get what you need, right away.

Get Opera for computers and start to experience faster internet.
