This version seems to be a little quicker to respond to menu presses that 9.5. Other than that, the big changes...
Turbo mode is indeed very fast... particularly when you browse to heavy web pages (sometimes feels 5 maybe 10 times faster). Pages format OK to.
However, if you have a high-res screen on your Windows Mobile (I'm a Touch Diamond user), fonts look pretty small, even after zooming to the max. And changing the Minimum Font Size in Settings > Display, or via Opera:Config > User Prefs, makes no difference. The current Turbo offering makes the resolution very small, so the font is too small to be practical to read long articles, etc. without getting eye strain.
I wonder if the proxy server is squashing pages just a bit too much? Perhaps this is what folks with limited data packages / PAYG data packages want? However, for those of us who would like to be able to comfortably read web content and either have unlimited data or don't mind the compromise, it would be nice to have the option of a compromise between the current heavily compressed Turbo mode and non-Turbo. In practical terms, I'm thinking of a second proxy server, compressing data a little less than currently, offered via a second user-friendly radio button option under Settings > Advanced ("Turbo mode - enhanced graphics"), or something along those lines. What do you reckon?
I'm not already a widget user. My experience of Opera's previous offerings was a little disappointing. Slow, not many widgets to chose from, show-up on screen in very small size. This time the front end is much better laid-out. However, apart from the default widgets that come with it, others I've tried seem to occupy only a small part of the screen and are therefore difficult to view and use... am I missing something here? (e.g. 25 squares widget). Anyway, not a biggie for me as I'm only really after the browser function.
Most interested to hear what people make of the Turbo mode... :-)
