The browser has nothing to do with streaming games or playing online games. But Instead, it optimizes or gives you the control over the usage of RAM and CPU by the browser.
Opera GX is titled as the world’s first gaming browser by the company. The browser makes sure that it doesn’t affect the gaming performance of your PC. The result is a “lean and clean” browser, according to Opera product manager Maciej Kocemba. “Before Opera GX, gamers often shut down their browsers in order to not slow down their gaming experience,” he said in a statement. “We 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.”
The GX control on the browser lest you limit the performance of the browser by letting you set the Cpu usage over set quarterly intervals ( 25, 50, 75, and 100) and 2GB to 8Gb for RAM. The same tab will show you the current usage levels.
The company is hoping that this browser would be the choice of gamers over the heavy memory consuming browser. The browser has a dedicated Twitch button which lets you log in to the streaming service and receive notifications from the platform.
The GX corner on the browser is a gaming dedicated section which will be updated with the latest gaming news and will show deals and discounts on PC gaming titles.
The Browser lets you customize the colours and interface.
The GX browser has all the features and extensions of the Opera browser.
You can grab a beta copy and try it yourself from the company’s website and it currently runs only on windows.
