Opera launches Opera GX, ‘world’s first gaming browser’

Opera has unveiled its Opera GX, the so-called “world’s first gaming browser” which lets users set limits on their CPU and RAM usage.

According to a report by Techcrunch, Opera GX also features a sidebar which gives easy access to Twitch, giving notification when a streamer goes live and letting users watch with video pop out.

Apart from that, the Opera GX also features customizeable browser featuring a variety of lighting and colors to choose from as well as limited edition wallpapers and sounds and animation inspired by gaming consoles.

Users could also browse games from all over the web in the GX corner, connect with their friends through integrated messengers, and install popular extensions in the browser.

The Opera GX also has a privacy control panel with a free no-log VPN, as well as a built-in ad blocker.

Opera Project Manager Maciej Kocemba said in a release: “Running a game might require a lot of effort from your machine. Even more so if you are streaming while you play.”

“Before Opera GX, gamers often shut down their browsers in order to not slow down their gaming experience. We came up with the GX Control feature to make people’s games run more smoothly without requiring them to compromise on what they do on the Web,” he added.
