"Opera Turbo when enabled will boost your browsing speed by a significant factor. This increase in speed is more pronounced when you are browsing on a slow Internet connection like a dial-up. Opera achieves this by acting as a web proxy to your client. The servers at Opera will retrieve your web page, compress it and then send it to your browser thus reducing the size of data and consequently boosting speed. Among other means, the compression is achieved by image down-sampling therefore some level of distortion in graphics may occur.
