Windows 7: Opera Turbo

Opera Turbo

It is my understanding that this feature is designed for someone on a dialup connection, but I'm on a 3.3mbps cable connection. Yet, Opera keeps popping a dialog on occasion, saying that I'm on a slow connection, and should consider using the Turbo feature (it is disabled in settings)

While I do find that Opera is exceptionally slow to initiate, once up, it displays pages fairly quickly, although I have seen it somewhat faster in the past.

This behavior has existed over the last couple or more installations, so I doubt that installation is a problem. If there is a problem, I think that it exists outside of the browser, but how would I check that?

Back when I was still using Opera I recall a few times getting this message myself. I am on a 12 MBPS connection. I think it just boils down to poor programming on their part.

I found this on GHacks

Opera Turbo Overview, Discovering Opera Part 1

but it didn't shed any light on the nag screen.

I still have Opera on my machine but I've found more and more that I'm getting addicted to Chromium. The nightly build I'm using now(85390) uses 10 instances of chrome.exe plus one for each open tab. I've got 5 tabs open now and sure enough, Task Manager shows 15 copies of chrome.exe running. A bit extravagant perhaps, but man you can watch the rendering snap up all at once!! Really fast. Fast off the HD too. No waiting.

The main thing that bugs me with these compression schemes it all the traffic getting redirected through their servers. Nobody gives stuff away without a reason.

I use Giganews accelerator but the stuff is all coming from their servers in the first place.

Of course not, there is quite a bit of marketing research to be had from our browsing habits.

To disable turbo did you:

Enable Turbo so you can see the Turbo icon in your address bar> Left click the icon and than click on Details> Change the setting from Automatic to Off

I did not get any details option by left clicking the icon, but on the window that it uses to select turbo's mode, there was a small checkbox to disable the network speed notification, which I just disabled, so now I must wait and see.

To me it feels like Turbo needs a good connection to initialize, but after that it works pretty well! But initializing it can be a pain on a slow connection.

My advice if you have a fast connection disable the nag.
Remember that all sites at times will be slow serving pages due to heavy traffic etc...
That turbo button comes in real handy when my ISP is throttling my bandwidth but I think my own innate low speed network detector is better than Opera's.
