Opera releases new browser specially built for gamers

The result is a "lean and clean" browser, according to Opera product manager Maciej Kocemba.

Moving forward, Opera made a decision to give its browser a rather unique twist, as the company wanted to specifically make it easier for gamers to navigate the web.

Apart from this, Opera GX also comes with a bunch of other interesting gaming-centric features. Opera has put a lot of effort into getting these sounds right, so it worked together with sound designer Rubén Rincón and the band Berlinist to make sure Opera GX is as unique as possible.

BROWSER MAKER Opera has announced another first in the form of a browser aimed specifically at gamers. By default, the browser comes in black colour with a red accent. In other words, you still get things like the VPN support, which for me has become an essential tool for my everyday browsing.

Not only can the design be customized, but users can also control his or her computer's CPU as well as RAM usage and can decide how much CPU power or RAM he or she wish to allot to the browser to use - with the help of Opera GX Control Panel. Web browsers are notorious for consuming excessive system resources. The new software isn't created to stream games.

Opera GX also features Twitch integration, displaying followed channels, online streamers, and the option to receive notifications when someone you follow starts their stream.

Toggling on the circle will let you set what percentage of the computer's resources you'll allow the browser to use, and Opera GX will stay within those limits. That's in addition to shortcuts for Discord, YouTube, and Reddit that also live in the sidebar.

The focus on gamers can even be found in something as elemental as the new browser's startup sounds, which includes tones and an animation sequence inspired by gaming consoles.

Opera GX can be downloaded here, with the final version planned to launch later this year. Additional features will be added based on user feedback, Opera says, so all users are encouraged to tell the company what they think for further enhancements in the next levels.
