Opera's gaming browser, titled Opera GX, is built around minimizing the browser's system requirements so that computers can focus more on gaming. With streaming gameplay becoming more popular and games requiring more power from CPU's, the use of a gaming-specific web browser could become commonplace.
The browser features a control panel that allows users to determine how much of the CPU and RAM can be used for browsing. The company notes that gamers often turn their browser off but that selecting the degree to which the computer prioritizes it, they would no longer need to close it. Additionally, Opera's gaming browser is fully Twitch-integrated, so users can log on via the browser's sidebar. The sound and animations on the browser are also inspired by gaming consoles.
