Default browsers don’t tend to be best optimised for gamers. In fact, many of the popular browsers that most PC users will find themselves using eat up RAM and slow down their games. On top of this issue, most browsers don’t exactly have a robust set of features tailored towards power-users. That’s why it’s time for gamers to step up their browser game.
Instead of suffering through slow load speeds and a browser you don’t have control over, you should download Opera GX instead. It’s a browser built with gamers in mind, including a suite of innovative features including GX Control, RAM Control, GX Cleaner, and a cookie and files cleaner. On top of these features, OperaGX boasts awesome customisation options, with themes, live wallpapers, and more.
It can be a big change, we know. But let’s take a look at some of the everyday problems you face with your browser, and how Opera GX can solve them.
My browser’s eating all my RAM!
Some browsers can be real RAM hogs. We’ve all had those moments where simply opening one more tab can spell the end of another program running on your PC, or closing a handful of tabs will suddenly make your Zoom call a lot more stable. Imagine if you could take out the guesswork.
With Opera GX, you can. With in-built limiters on RAM and CPU usage, you can adjust how much space the browser is allowed to take up in your memory, freeing yourself up to load any other programs you might need. No more closing down all those tabs you’ve been meaning to check out some time.
All my messenger apps are taking up too much space!
You’ve got the Discord app open on your PC to chat with your raid group. Then, suddenly, your mother is pinging you on Facebook Messenger in your browser. Then another group of friends are trying to make plans on Whatsapp, pinging you on your phone. All a little too much? You need a way to group all of these apps into one place.
Opera GX has just the thing – a sidebar storing all your messenger apps in one place, even Whatsapp. Instead of flitting between different tabs, programs, and even screens, you can have all of your messages in one place, switching between them with ease as everyone tries to get hold of you. What could be more convenient?
I can’t find a good VPN for my browser!
Protecting yourself on the internet is vital, and having your own VPN can help with that. But there are so many options to choose from, and you’ll either need to suffer through a terrible user experience to get it working or pay up to get something workable.
With Opera GX, you’ve got a built-in VPN straight out the box, taking the guesswork out of the equation. Just install the browser, open up the VPN, and away you go. And yes, that works on both desktop and mobile versions of the browser, without any login details required. Being safe couldn’t be easier.
Even with the entire knowledge of civilization at your fingertips, you might still find yourself getting bored when idly browsing the web. What you need is some games to keep you occupied – and Opera GX has them in spades.
Open up the GX Corner and you’ll find not only information about the biggest console and PC games, but a wide variety of games to play directly from your browser. With addictive idle games like Leaf Blower Revolution alongside full-fledged puzzle games like Princess Farmer, you’re sure to find something that’ll tickle your fancy for however long it takes your boss to realise that you haven’t done any work for a while.
Now think back and ask yourself, does your browser do all this? Unless you’re already using Opera GX, the answer is probably no. And there’s a lot more to Opera GX than just these features, including an in-built ad-blocker, customisable themes, better bookmarking, and more.
Even better, it synchronises with your existing browser, so you won’t lose any of your bookmarks, making the transition even easier. When you open OperaGX you’re automatically prompted to import whatever data you want from your old browser, and this can also be done easily through the browser’s settings.
