Going on vacation… but one more thing…

September 25, 2009 at 1:14 pm (Internet surfing) (, , )

Just a quick note to say why I haven’t been posting and won’t be posting next week: First of all, I’ve been working on other projects to get ready for my vacation next week! 😀 And, obviously, the reason I’m not going to be posting next week is because I’ll be on vacation! 😀 I’m excited if you haven’t guessed!

By the way, I haven’t had a chance to try it out for myself, but I keep reading about Opera 10. Opera is a browser, a competitor of Internet Explorer or Firefox, but not too prominently known so far. Opera is a proprietary (not open source like Chrome and Firefox) software company. They actually make all kinds of programs, like a mail server and gadgets for your phone, etc. I don’t know all the details, but I plan to research them more soon.

Even though Opera holds only a small market share of the Internet browers users, they are still well loved by a small group of loyal fans and constantly coming up with a new and better browser–just like all of the other little guys.

Anyway, Opera version 10 recently came out, although I’ve been hearing about it months ago when the beta version was released. This version isn’t that astoundingly advanced with tons of new features or anything, but it’s getting a lot of attention for its “turbo mode”, a setting that is made just for dial-up users (yay that’s for me!) to accelerate web page loading, etc. They say it works miracles! Ok, not really, but clearly I’m interested. Anyone who has dial-up (shout out to my fellow 11 million-ish U.S. dial-upers!) can appreciate something that will make dial-up internet services faster, right?!!

So, since I’m trying to keep up with the times but unfortunately don’t have time to download it now or review here until maybe two weeks from now, I still wanted to quickly mention it. I’m not giving my thumbs up just yet, but you might wanna take a look.

It’s a free download, just go to www.opera.com, and click the green “Download Opera” button. Have you already tried it? Let me know what you think! Have a great weekend and next week!
