2 : in effect : virtually <will literally turn the world upside down to combat cruelty or injustice — Norman Cousins>
Usage Discussion of LITERALLY
Since some people take sense 2 to be the opposite of sense 1, it has been frequently criticized as a misuse. Instead, the use is pure hyperbole intended to gain emphasis, but it often appears in contexts where no additional emphasis is necessary.
While I did, admittedly, do it for a bit of hyperbole, I did feel actual nausea after looking at the interface.
