Opera GX Gaming Bowser Theme:
Opera GX has an eye-catching gaming-inspired dark theme with bright colors. There is also an “Easy Setup” icon at the top right corner of the browser to change the colors. You can activate Razer Chroma integration to integrate selected colors with your Razer Mouse or Keyboard.
Opera GX Control, CPU & RAM Limiters:
There is a button in sidebar named as GX Control. You can set CPU and RAM limits by clicking this button. In GX Control, you can limit the CPU processor usage and RAM usage by the browser. For example, you can set a limit for the browser to use 10% of CPU resources and 2 GB RAM usage from 16 GB RAM.
If you have a habit of the opening so many tabs in a browser then this feature might be useful for you. Off course leaving the GX Control ON can make your browser slower (depends upon your CPU & RAM Limit Settings).
Windows has already auto-optimization feature enabled while you are playing games. It lowers the resources of browsers and other apps when games are opened. Browsers use lots of resources if so many tabs are open. That’s why many gamers close the web browser while gaming. Opera GX might become helpful for this problem, so gamers can put the browser tabs open while playing the games without compromising web work.
“Before Opera GX, gamers often shut down their browsers to not slow down their gaming experience. 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,” explains Opera’s Maciej Kocemba.
