Opera does its bit for faster Web 2.0 pages

Browser firm Opera is planning to include an ultra-fast JavaScript engine in upcoming versions of its browser.

Opera is currently developing an engine that will handle ECMAScript and JavaScript code at about two-and-a-half times faster than its current Opera browser engine.

The move will mean users will be able to download Java content much faster, which is particularly useful when viewing Web 2.0 interactive websites.

The new "Carakan" engine is designed to put speed performance first, instead of Opera's usual main focus of bringing out browsers with the smallest possible footprint.

Opera will soon launch the Opera 10 browser, but Carakan is still being tested and will be incorporated into future versions of Opera.
