Opera’s first-ever “gaming browser”, Opera GX has been announced to be released for mobile devices. Opera GX was originally released for PC beta in 2019. Opera has distinguished their GX browser from the base Opera browser quite a bit by providing additional applications on their sidebar. Most importantly, the GX Control and GX Cleaner. The GX Control limits the CPU and RAM usage, intended to preserve the performance of games running. GX Control also allows you to control the Network output allowed to the browser. And the Gx Cleaner is a basic storage cleaner for Opera GX, cleaning cache, search history, and cookies.

The mobile version of the browser will be able to link with your PC Browser using a QR code to transfer files at a maximum size of 10MBs, YouTube videos, and links, a bit like the My Flow section of the basic Opera browser.

It is worth noting that Opera’s mobile applications have faced scandals in the past, and have some shady business practices. The Hindenburg report offers examples of Opera’s “predatory short-term lending” apps — OKash and OPesa in Kenya, CashBean in India, and OPay in Nigeria. Although there haven’t been any new developments made in these cases as of late, it is still something to keep in mind, especially if you save your private details like passwords and your payment info within your browser.
