Opera GX is a special version of the well-know Opera browser that is specifically designed for the gaming browser. The browser includes unique features to help you get the most out of both gaming and browsing. In addition to the security and anti-ad features specific to the browser, you also have numerous options and quick links that you are likely to use as a gamer.
From the start, you are very likely to be impressed with the interface which is modern, futuristic, and very immersive. Nevertheless, things don’t just stop here, and you have the freedom to customize it further with dozens of themes and special effects. From Razer Chroma color palette to specially designed wallpapers, there is no limit to how you can personalize it.
Another noteworthy feature is the in-browser sound effects which make everything seem like you are part of an alien or in-game world. The sounds are composed by Rubén Rincón and the Berlinist band, who are behind the Gris game original soundtrack.
Opera GX Gaming Browser Features
Need every ounce of power your machine can give you? No need to close your browser. GX Control lets you set limits on how much RAM and CPU usage your browser will take up.
GX Control’s RAM limiter lets you choose how much memory Opera GX 64-bit Browser uses. The default setting in the RAM Limiter aims to strike a balance between memory use and experience. The browser will try to stay at or below the selected memory allotment, but it will prioritize experience over the strict memory amount.
The CPU Limiter lets you put a cap on how much of your computer’s processing the web browser uses, so the rest can be reserved for gaming. The goal of both GX Control features is to enable you to always be able to keep your browser open, even if you’re playing or streaming a resource-heavy game.
