Yes, you heard it right, Gaming Browser is now a thing. It would be quite difficult to get an idea of how different Gaming Browsers would be from normal browsers. Well, there is some huge difference between an ordinary browser like Google Chrome, Opera, Mozilla Firefox and a gaming browser like Opera GX.

What is Opera GX and why is it called a Gaming Browser
Opera GX is a project by the normal browser, often called Opera. It is described as a special version of the Opera Browser, that is made to serve gamers. Opera GX will not only help you with Gaming but also normal browsing, making it two in one.

The Opera GX is packed with numerous awesome features. Firstly, it features a Network & Ram Limiter, which will allow users to limit how much bandwidth or Ram Opera GX can use. This is a major upgrade for those who are struggling with insane memory being eaten by Google Chrome and others.

The Ram limiter is a key feature here since it’ll solve most of the lag issues. Opening applications on a browser in the background won’t impact your performance in-game. Lastly, Opera GX will also feature CPU limiters, that can allow users to set a specific amount of CPU speed for browser, and rest for gaming.

Other incredible features include Twitch Integration, which is placed on the sidebar making it very accessible. This feature will inform you of what your favorite Streamer is doing. Secondly, Opera GX another feature includes GX corner.

The best Feature hands down!
This is probably the best feature, in my opinion, it is hard to choose since there are so many awesome things. The GX corner will feature incredible Game deals on PC, PS, and XBOX from various Game Stores. When you have this feature around the corner, I’m pretty sure you won’t miss any epic deals.


Furthermore, Opera GX also features enhanced sound settings. The Browser has built-in sound effects. “Opera GX has in-browser sound effects, composed in collaboration with sound designer Rubén Rincón and the band Berlinist, who recently received a nomination in the BAFTA Games Awards for the original game soundtrack to Gris. Sound effects can be toggled on and off in the settings.”

RGB, Custom Wallpaper, and themes are also built-in within the browser. You can change the collars of various things with Raze Chroma (RGB). Additionally, there are a lot of themes and wallpapers that can freshen your mood. These customization settings are right within your fingertips, unlike Google Chrome and others, where you have to download them from Store and then it takes a while to apply. This is what differentiates Opera GX from ordinary browsers

Communication is also essential for browsers. The top browsers in the markets like Google Chrome and Mozilla are not offering any feature that can allow users to chat on all platforms through one application. Opera GX has built-in Integrated Messenger, which will allow you to chat and browse at same time with popular sites like Facebook Messenger, Telegram, Vkonntakte, and WhatsApp. Again, these features are on your sidebars, requiring little to no effort in using them.


Gamers are very conservative about Ads because it literally wastes a lot of your time. You open YouTube, Twitch, and Articles, afterward you have to get your way through weird Adds that are very annoying. Opera GX has a built-in AdBlocker, which will block all adds. The browsing experience will be total ad-free.

Gaming browser - Free browser VPN

Built-in VPN
VPN on browsers are usually expensive, and they are third party. There are lots of issues, like limited data, bugs, and lack of support. It is also difficult to use an a Desktop-based VPN, because it takes time to get it in contact with Browser. Again, Opera GX has a built-in VPN, which is completely free and unlimited. This is also available within your fingertips, making it easier to acces.

Google Chrome Extensions Readily available on Opera GX
Lastly, Opera GX also features Google Chrome Extensions. This makes it quite easy to switch from Google Chrome to Opera GX. Now, users can have the same Google Chrome tools in Opera GX as well. The Gaming Browser is in Early Acess because there is a lot to be done. No Specific dates for Opera GX getting out of Early Access are shared yet.

Gaming browser - Extensions

Opera GX Remarks
“As long as it needs to. Since this is the first gaming browser, there are still a bunch of performance, design and functional questions we want to explore to meet gamers’ needs. We’re going to gather feedback and ideas and iterate by introducing changes in the browser. Each new version will be a new Level. Go to Opera GX’s about section to find out what your current level is and update to the newest one.”

Opera GX features almost everything a gamer can ask for. The most incredible thing about Opera GX is that some features like Ram/Cpu/Network limiter provides an upper hand over other browsers. The Gaming Browser will be the first choice for everyone, not just gamers due to provided features.
