Opera GX is a web browser specifically designed for gamers. Opera GX functions like a regular browser, supporting tabbed browsing, extensions, and bookmarks, and every other feature you’d expect. But Opera GX also offers a homepage with video game sales and news, a sidebar with chat channels, RAM and CPU limiters for the browser, and more.
