Opera GX is a special version of the Opera browser created specifically to complement games. The browser includes unique features to help you get the most out of both games and browsing.
Features and highlights
Do you need every ounce of energy your machine can give you? It is not necessary to close your browser. GX Control allows you to set limits on the amount of RAM and CPU usage your browser will occupy.
RAM memory limiter
The GX Control RAM limiter allows you to choose the amount of memory Opera GX uses. The default setting in the RAM Limiter is intended to strike a balance between memory usage and experience. The browser will try to stay at or below the selected memory allocation, but will prioritize the experience over the strict amount of memory.
The CPU Limiter allows you to put a limit on the amount of processing on your computer that the browser uses, so that the rest can be reserved for games. The purpose of both GX Control functions is to allow you to always keep your browser open, even if you are playing or streaming a resource-heavy game.
Never miss a live broadcast. With Twitch in your sidebar, you can easily see the channels you follow, who is online, and choose to receive notifications every time someone you follow goes live.
Stay up to date with the best deals, the latest releases, and the latest game news in one easy-to-access place.
Opera GX has sound effects in the browser, composed in collaboration with sound designer Rubén Rincón and the band Berlinist, who recently received a nomination at the BAFTA Games Awards for the original soundtrack of the game Gris. Sound effects can be turned on and off in settings.
You can customize your browser with the color you want and choose from different special effects and themes.
Choose from specially designed wallpapers, or easily select your own desktop background as the background.
Chat and browse at the same time with Facebook Messenger, Telegram, Vkontakte and WhatsApp integrated in the sidebar.
