Opera launches the 'world's first gaming browser'

Opera GX CPU and RAM limiters

Opera GX CPU and RAM limiters

Coupled with the addition of a CPU and RAM limiter, Opera GX has the potential of drawing not only Opera users, but users from other browser vendors as well.

"Before Opera GX, gamers often shut down their browsers to not slow down their gaming experience".

Opera GX has in-browser sound effects, composed in collaboration with sound designer Rubén Rincón and the band Berlinist, who recently received a nomination in the BAFTA Games Awards for Gris game original soundtrack.

Further, the Opera GX team has also added gaming-inspired sound effects to the browser interface, which can be turned off, if annoying, which they'll most likely get at one point or another.

Opera has released a new version of its web browser specially designed for gamers.

Meanwhile, Sarfaraz vowed Pakistan will put their 5-0 whitewash by Australia in March behind them. "We're not thinking about that".

You might not use all of its gamer-centric features, but Opera GX is a solid browser underneath all of the bells and whistles, and a perfectly reasonable choice if you prioritize privacy and like the idea of a browser that sounds like a spaceship. The same panel will also tell you the current usage levels. This includes its built-in ad blocker, support for detachable video popups, and a built-in VPN.

Streamers will love the browser too as it has inbuilt Twitch integration. Meanwhile, a built-in Twitch sidebar lets you watch streams and receive notifications while you browse.

The browser's default homepage is something called GX Corner, which gathers deals on games from different retailers and includes a news feed with top gaming-related headlines from various sources (including TechRadar). If you cant to check it out for yourself, you can download and test Opera GX from Opera.

Aside from those differences, the product itself includes all the features available in the main Opera browser, so existing Opera extensions will work on GX.

Opera GX is now in early access, and only available for download for Windows users.
