Turbo. Desktop.

When Turbo mode is enabled, certain page elements (such as video ads from other sites) may not load, and placeholder images may appear in their place. To load the hidden content, click the placeholder.

By default, Yandex.Browser compresses video when Turbo mode is on in order to reduce traffic by up to 70%, but this lowers image quality. To view videos without sacrificing quality, disable video compression:

  1. Click  Settings.
  2. In the Turbo section, turn off the Compress video option.

If you don't want Turbo mode to turn on/off automatically (in response to your connection speed), you can control it manually. That way it will stay on or off until you restart your browser. If you want Turbo mode to remain on/off even after you restart your browser, change your settings.

  1. In the right part of the SmartBox, click any Protect toolbar icon.
  2. Flip the Turbo mode switch to On.
  1. On the right side of the SmartBox, click the Turbo icon .
  2. Flip the Turbo mode switch to Off.
  1. Click  Turn Turbo mode off.

After doing this, Turbo will stop switching on automatically.

You can manually turn Turbo mode on or off in your settings (which will also prevent it from launching automatically). Additionally, you can disable video compression and turn off speed notifications. All settings are saved even after you restart your browser.

  1. Click  Settings.
  2. In the Turbo section, set Turbo mode parameters.
