Now Opera has launched on the market a new browser for PC, very special and innovative at least from the point of view of the objective, which had never been seen before: Opera GX Gaming Browser, Namely the browser for gamers.
This experimental browser dedicated to gamers works like a regular browser, but has some really nice features and interesting as the integration of Twitch and, above all, the computer's CPU and RAM usage limiter (ideal for those with an old PC or one with little memory). The user interface, then, has a sci-fi movie look, which we could define absolutely "extravagant".
Like the standard version of Opera, Opera GX is based on Chromium, the open-source project that forms the basis for the Google Chrome web browser. The websites then open and appear the same as they do with Chrome and it is also possible to install Chrome extensions.
Like Gaming Browser, Opera GX is dedicated to viodegames players, Twitch regulars, and those who are always looking for news about new upcoming games. Apart from that, everyone can use them, especially if you want to try the PC performance optimization feature.
Opera GX is available for free via PC Windows and also for smartphones Android and for iPhone and iPad
Main features of Opera GX
Razer interface : Opera has made sure that browser graphics resemble those of gaming computers, keyboards or mice used by PC gamers. So here's a dark theme with fuchsia edges, which you can customize using other flashy colors like purple, green or blue. To change the colors just press the personalization button at the top right and immediately choose your favorite color. You can also change the background, activate animations and choose the volume of the sounds with a dedicated slider.
Latest news and games : Opera GX has a dedicated space on the home card that allows you to read the latest news on PC or console games. You can also add custom sources to get news from your favorite sites.
Limitation of CPU and RAM usage : This is certainly the best of the features introduced by Opera GX, which allows you to specify how much RAM or CPU the browser can use. This feature is intended for gamers, to prevent game performance from being throttled when the browser is kept open. By specifying, therefore, the maximum memory and CPU that Opera can use, you make sure to leave resources for the game or even for other programs.
