Something like fasTun Tool?

fasTun Tool provides a convenient interface to quickly activate and deactivate fasTun (free Web Accelerator service with HTTP compression), built-authentication, load the original images bypassing fasTun and quick access to service's settings.

That's a dead link. Also, in the comments of a related plugin someone wrote in June 2014: "This app no longer works and the website for the app has been down for months". –  Arjan Mar 21 at 13:45

Janus Proxy Configurator

click "Manuelle Instalation"! sometimes it can crash the server or not load page.

Do you use it? On I read "The Janus proxy experiment has ended". –  Arjan Mar 21 at 13:42

Short: There isn't any.

Long: Opera's Turbo works by sending the request to Opera's webservers, which get the data in uncompressed format, even if the webserver sends the data in compressed manner( eg: Stack Exchange sites), compress these and send it back to the browser. Theoretically, it's possible to simulate this via an addon but it's trivial for Opera to block these, and it wouldn't look good.

Perhaps something which you can roll out yourself if you're so inclined
