Opera launches Opera GX, world's first gaming browser

Opera GX

Opera teased the world's first gaming browser a few days back with a promise of bringing it soon to the market. Web browsers are notorious for consuming excessive system resources.

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.

"Running a game might require a lot of effort from your machine".

"Before Opera GX, gamers often shut down their browsers to not slow down their gaming experience. Even more so if you are streaming while you play", said Maciej Kocemba, product director of Opera GX.

Uber is elevating its UberAir pilot program to include Melbourne, Australia
The air taxis will transport people across cities for the same price as auto UberX services. One of Uber's flying cars could soon be flying you across Melbourne .

The biggest highlight of Opera GX is its GX Control panel, which lets you set how much of your computer's CPU and RAM the browser can use. The browser will also display how much CPU and RAM resources are now being used. Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Telegram, all are integrated into the sidebar of the browser. They will also have the opportunity to shape the next versions, as Opera's developers have added special "feedback" boxes throughout the browser, where particular features can be rated with one to five hearts. Opera says the sound effects and musical logo creation are the result of a collaboration with sound designer Ruben Rincon and the band Berlinist, who recently scored a BAFTA Game Awards nomination for the original soundtrack to the game GRIS. There's also a built-in ad blocker and VPN.

Overall, Opera GX includes all the features present in Opera's main desktop browser, now used by over 65 million users.

Because Opera GX is basically a cooler version of the standard Opera distribution, this also means there's no downgrade when switching to Opera's new release.

The wait is now over, and an early access version of Opera GX is available to download and try for yourself.
