  • I don't see any Opera Turbo-related item in Settings page.

  • Yep, it's gone.

    Yep, it's gone.

    But, I could use Opera Turbo on Yandex Browser.

  • @korobushka123 I just meant that it's gone from Opera's browser at least.

  • I was hoping it was a temporary thing, instead Opera Turbo was really eliminated, I am very disappointed because it was the main reason, even if it turned out to be better for several other things, so for a couple of years I use it in place of Chrome. Opera Turbo, especially for those who have a consumer connection, was an essential function, one of those that should never be touched, so I don't understand the logic behind this decision.

  • @crisalide Without Turbo it's not Opera anymore........

    I'm not an Opera employee, but my best guess is it was a business cost decision, perhaps accelerated by the recent Opera ownership change. Turbo was not a strictly browser-code feature as much as it was a proxy-like filter residing on servers operated by Opera (which compressed the data coming back from a visited website - especially images - thereby reducing the data package size going to the user). So two cost-reduction possibilities present themselves: either it was becoming too expensive to maintain the Turbo browser code in light of the continual chromium engine updates or/and it was becoming too expensive (or bandwidth-competitive) to maintain the proxy-like server network. My personal guess is the latter to be more likely contributor.
