The Web browsers has just launched a new gaming service, a gamin browser. According to the company, what makes up the term ‘gaming browser’ is the fact that “it requires a customizable CPU and RAM limiters, alonhside a Twitch integration, and a dedicated gaming-related tab”.

This year’s out-of-left-field award goes to Opera Software and its launch of a new browser. Billed as the “world’s first gaming browser,” Opera GX is a customized version of the Opera web browser that has some nifty features.

Opera GX has a dedicated tab, called GX Corner, for deals in gaming and currently circulating news stories, more of a double deal for users.
Also, the GX comes with a dark theme with neon red trim, but Opera says the color is customizable, hence it is subjected to changes. However, the default dark theme gives it a very gamer-like look.
In addition, GX also has sound effects that were created by Rubén Rincón, and the band Berlinist, who were nominated for BAFTA awards. Of course, if you don’t like noisy browsing, you can easily turn off the effects.
About the avilability, the GX will be available starting from today in early access form. Although, the regular Opera browser is available for Windows, macOS and Linux, while Opera GX is only available for Windows. The company did not state anything about additional update, but it appears like there will be something like that in the nearest future.
