Now, if suddenly everybody had a quantum computer that could break RSA in polytime, there might be a point to this, but they don't, so there isn't - not that I can see.
If suddenly is in say 10 years time. Then doing this research that will be much more feasible in 6 years time seems pretty smart to me. Just because the technology isnt here now doesn't mean it isnt worth preparing for its arrival
Opera do not even have a message saying they Pass at 100. Actually Opera seem to feel its something their browser shuld be doing anyway - not a "goal"
Although I agree its nasty marketing - Turbo is a real benefit to people on slow net connections, such as a mobile. It basically proxies through Opera's servers and compresses everything before sending it to the phone. So as much as a clog is something too big increading pressure on a limited throughput - Turbo does unclog your connection
Seems to be working in Opera 10 (alpha) as well. So is it news when Firefox does it - even if its last?*
What I think is news is there seem to more browsers that support the tag that websites that use it. Must be a first for a new feature of HTML.
*Yeah yeah I'm discounting IE.
Neutrinos are into physicists.
