A free mobile gaming browser
Opera GX Mobile is a free mobile web browser designed specifically for mobile gaming. Developed by Opera Software, this is Opera GX’s mobile version and brings back some of the gaming browser’s popular features while introducing its own—some of which are optimizing for mobile use.
Opera GX Mobile’s scope has unfortunately been downsized compared to the PC version due to the capabilities of mobile devices. However, this doesn’t mean that it’s any less useful compared to Opera GX. It’s been designed for easy on-the-go gaming and even offers unique online protection.
Is Opera GX better than Opera?
First released in 1995, Opera is a multi-platform and Chromium-based browser by Opera Software. Its success over the years eventually led to the creation of a version that’s gaming-oriented—aptly called Opera GX. Compared to the original version, GX has unique features for mobile players’ benefit. Tools such as app integrations and CPU, RAM, and network limiters became its selling point against other browsers.
Like its competitors, Opera GX eventually offered a mobile version. Opera GX Mobile retains many of the original features. One of these is the GX Corner—your easy access to news and updates about the gaming world. Another cool feature is Flow, which can sync your mobile and PC browsers and lets you share media between them using QR codes. This is limited to media, though, and you can’t import bookmarks.
Meanwhile, the new features include the option for customizable one-handed navigation, which is called Fast Action Button or FAB. The app also comes with blockers for ads, pop-ups, cookie dialogs, and crypto-mining, as well as a selection of cool browser themes and a handy Dark Mode. However, fans of the performance booster settings from the PC version will be disappointed as it’s not available here.
Has a lot of potential
Overall, Opera GX Mobile is a great mobile version for Opera’s successful gaming counterpart. While it still has room for improvement in terms of bringing back old beloved features from the PC version, it has enough solid and handy features to keep users satisfied with its performance. Notably, its customization options and security features can rival that of other mobile browsers.
