Now here is something for the cheerleaders.
Web site compression technology, Opera Turbo, has just received a significant upgrade which will certainly improve your browsing experience.
Thanks to WebP compression, JPEG images not only do look better now but also take less time to load (see picture above).

Even though it’s April Fools Day, there has been some interesting information floating around about the upcoming (possibly IE10) web browser from Microsoft called Immersive Browser.
Before you dismiss this info as yet another joke, here is what you need to know: MS has uploaded the Windows 8 M2 (Milestone 2) build to its partners on Microsoft Connect a couple of days ago. Now obviously, once you share something with quite a few people, there is a high probability of a leak and OS screenshots (and that’s exactly what happened).

Today is a sad day for all Windows Mobile 6.5 and 6 users, as Opera Software has decided to drop WinMo OS support and has no plans to release any new browser versions in the future.
According to Dag Olav Norem post, there were no new devices launched for quite some time and OS market share is shrinking fast.
As a result, Windows Mobile can no longer supply Opera Software with the revenue potential that would justify further investment.
As promised, Opera Software has released quite a few new versions of Opera Mini and Opera Mobile web browsers that include an enhanced user interface, session restore support and more.
Opera Mobile 11 is now available for Android, Symbian/S60, Maemo, MeeGo and Windows (not Windows Phone or Windows Mobile) platforms as well as Opera Mini 6 and Opera Mini 4.3 for J2ME devices.
The upcoming Windows Phone 7 update codenamed Mango is set to include the new version of Internet Explorer Mobile and bring quite a few new things to the table, such as: HTML5 support, performance improvements, slightly revamped UI and possibly social sites integration.
Folks at PocketNow have captured some of the IE9 Mobile magic in the video below for you to check out.
With the announcement of upcoming Opera Mobile 11 and Opera Mini 6 releases, Norwegian browser maker has also revealed that Windows Phone 7 will be receiving its own version of Opera as well (dubbed Opera Mobile).
“In our lineup, all players are equally important–we leave no device behind. Our small and clever pieces of software will give you a 5-star experience, no matter what hardware you prefer”, said Lars Boilesen, the CEO of Opera Software.
Next week should be pretty exciting.
Update: It looks like it might be coming to Windows 7 tablets instead.
