It seems that the more advanced the Internet gets, the longer it takes for pages to load in your browser. Whether you use Internet Explorer, Firefox or Safari, if your connection isn’t performing at it’s peak, the time it takes to load your favorite web pages can take forever.
Well, it seems that a browser company has finally thought about that problem and has come up with a solution. The Opera Software Company just released their newest browser, Opera 10, a few days ago. For those of you that have never heard of Opera, I’ll explain a little bit. You see, Opera is just another browser like Internet Explorer or Firefox. It pulls up the same internet web pages and even looks similar to other browsers. It is just made by a different company and uses different technologies that the other’s don’t. Here is a shot of what opera looks like:
Looks familiar, right?
This new verison of Opera comes with some new technology that they call “Opera 10 with Turbo”. According to Opera, Turbo technology “keeps Web pages loading lightning fast, even if your connection slows down”. Doesn’t that sound awesome?
I downloaded and installed Opera 10 with Turbo. It was a quick and painless download with a simple install. I cruised around with it a bit and honestly, I’m impressed with its speed.
The best thing about Opera 10 is that, you guessed it, it’s free! So, If you want to give it a shot, you can download it here: http://www.opera.com/
