Opera is the publisher of the web browser of the same name. A few weeks ago, it announced the launch of a mobile beta version of the Opera GX browser exclusively for gamers. The international video game exhibition launched at E3 in 2019, the desktop version of Opera GX, which can be used on Windows and macOS, does include some features that may be of interest to players.
For example, this is the control panel, which makes it possible to pay attention to the occupancy of resources consumed by the browser. When the browser window is not closed or streaming media is being played, this is an essential element. When Twitch When running in the browser
Just a few weeks after announcing the beta version of Opera GX on iOS and Android, Opera once again used'E3 to announce the release of a stable version of Opera GX Mobile. But does this version for Android smartphones and iPhones really benefit mobile gamers, or is it just a marketing ad? We have installed a browser on our smartphone, and our opinions are somewhat different.

Design, Calendar, and Tips
Opera GX will put you in a good mood when it first starts up. After asking if you want to block ads, take advantage of the protection of cryptocurrency mining, and if you want to block cookie dialogs, Opera GX offers to choose the browser theme: light or dark, with accents ranging from red to purple to green, The color that makes you a "game player", we should say.
The rest is a bit disappointing because it relates to the game as a whole, not in practice. On its homepage, Opera GX shows the GX Corner module. For those who are looking for a simple solution to easily track all information directly or indirectly related to video games, this in itself justifies the use of Opera GX .
This feature includes game release calendars for different platforms, free downloadable game lists, upcoming new games, special offers and promotions for different retailers, game trailers, and various A professional news website that publishes daily game news feeds on the platform.
Not interested in mobile games
Other features provided by Opera GX are equally interesting, but compared with other browsers, they definitely do not bring any added value to players. These same features .
One-handed navigation, probably thanks to the quick action button, which is not activated by default. You must go to your browser settings to use it. Although one-handed navigation is indeed simplified, it slows down navigation compared to traditional systems. This is not surprising, because you have to hold your finger on the button to display the action, and then you can slide your finger on one of the buttons to initiate the action.
The remaining options and functions provided in Opera GX are classic in recent mobile browsers. The classic version of Opera Mobile already includes some of these features: ad blocker, data synchronization between desktop and mobile browsers, or cookie dialog blocking. Opera GX is not a bad mobile web browser, but it does not provide any functions directly related to games, or even a streaming game platform that can be accessed from a mobile browser.
Finally, Opera GX for Android seems to be just another version of the browser. It has been added to the browsers that Norwegian publishers already provide on Android: Opera, Opera mini, Opera Touch and now Opera GX. When all these features can be combined into a single but more customizable version of Opera, it's hard not to get lost and find some value from it.
