What is Opera Turbo Mode And How To Enable It?

Introduction to Opera Turbo Mode

Opera Turbo Mode is a new feature in Opera 10 Browser that allows a page to load much faster by compressing the image. When this mode is enabled, Opera’s servers will compress the images and other graphic elements from a webpage and send them to your browser, resulting in a faster load time. It is suitable for those users who are using a slow internet connection, such as dial-up or are using a crowded Wi-Fi connection.


How To Enable It

Enabling ‘Turbo Mode’ in Opera is a piece-of-cake. Go to Tools > Quick Preferences and click Enable Opera Turbo.

To go back to Normal Mode, repeat the same method again. Obviously the image quality will be reduced in Turbo Mode, so do not expect the same image quality that is in normal mode.


If you do not want it to be enabled, nor do you want it to be disabled, then there is a new option. You can set Turbo Mode to be Automatic, which means it will be enabled when a slow connection is detected and disabled when a normal connection is detected. Right-click the Turbo icon and select Configure Opera Turbo. Now under Opera Turbo Settings, select Automatic and click OK. It’s that easy.
