Opera added SPDY support to its Turbo engine which when enabled loads SPDY using sites much faster in Turbo mode. If you don’t know: Opera Turbo mode automatically detects when you’re on slower connection and turns on itself and serves compressed pages via its Turbo servers to your browser, images quality will be reduced when compared to normal mode. All this done to improve loading of pages on slower connections like Dial-up or when using Wi-Fi connections at public places.

Opera today released new snapshot for Opera 12.10 with addition of SPDY support to Turbo engine.
