Idea Behind GX Gaming for Opera
The idea is to provide gamers with a way to navigate the web while leaving resources available for games or streaming applications that the gamer might also be running at the same time.
"Running a game might require a lot of effort from your device or system. Even more so if you are streaming while you play," said Maciej Kocemba, product director of Opera GX.
"Before Opera GX gamers often shut down their browsers to not slow down their gaming experience.They 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."
Opera GX uses the desktop Opera web browser as its base which means that it features everything that is part of the Opera desktop browser.
What GX Opera comes with
- GX Opera Gamers allows users to set limits on CPU and RAM usage via a panel built right inside the browser. Web browsers are notorious for consuming excessive system resources. Opera GX will let users set hard limits on system resources, making lives easier for some users. The browser will also display how much CPU and RAM resources are currently being used.
- Opera GX also comes with a bunch of other interesting gaming-centric features. The new tab screen on Opera GX will feature gaming deals and news from the gaming, technology, and entertainment categories.
- Opera GX also comes with Twitch integration, letting users quickly access their Twitch subscriptions.
- Opera GX includes the standard Opera browser features such as free VPN, ad blocker, and pop-out access for Facebook Messenger, Telegram, and WhatsApp.
- The browser also comes with an array of sound and lighting effects. By default, the browser comes in black colour with a red accent.
- Opera GX also comes with Twitch integration, meaning users can log into their Twitch accounts via the browser's sidebar.
How to download Opera GX Gamer
- Opera GX is available for Windows only at this point in time and only as an early access version. Opera plans to release a final version later this year. Interested users can download the web browser from the Opera website(Click HERE to download).
- To Install it is identical to that of the regular Opera browser.
- Note: the browser is set up to submit telemetry to Opera by default; you can disable that during setup.
- The browser opens with a splash animation and a redesigned color scheme and new tab page.
As of right now, it could appeal to gamers because of the themes and feeds that it provides. Gaming-wise however, it probably won't offer any advantages over other browsers.
