Opera Software today unveiled the final version of Opera 10. In a
world of ordinary Web browsers, Opera 10 stands out from the crowd
with innovative new features wrapped in an elegant, fresh interface.
Opera 10 is absolutely free, comes in 43 languages, and works on
Windows, Mac and Linux platforms. You can download the world’s most
innovative browser from http://www.opera.com/.

Whether you are an on-the-go business traveler, you rely on 3G cards
in your netbook, or you find yourself stuck on a sluggish Wi-Fi
connection, Opera Turbo gives you a major browsing boost.
If your network speed slows to a crawl, simply enable Opera Turbo to
browse the Web at broadband-like speeds. Opera Turbo will
automatically detect when network speeds will enable you to benefit.
Once you turn it on, Opera Turbo instantly compresses pages, so less
data needs to be transferred over a limited connection.
Take the Opera Turbo test today. In our laboratory trials, Opera
Turbo gives up to eight times faster Web surfing over slow
connections than other browsers.

– The craftsmanship under the hood
Browsing speed is a combination of many factors. We fine-tuned our
overall speed, making Opera faster and smoother on resource-intensive

Opera 9.6 … and that is before you activate Opera Turbo. Opera is
designed not only to be light and fast, but also smart. Our adaptive
memory management is optimized to work with your machine, conserving
memory if your computer has less RAM and utilizing more memory to
enhance performance if your computer has memory to spare.
