Opera GX adds new color themes plus GX Cleaner to purge those old files

Opera GX w. GX Cleaner and new color themes


Today we are introducing new features that allow you to completely change the look of your Opera GX browser, while always keeping it fast and lightweight, as if freshly installed.

An unlimited number of colors for your browsing

At Opera GX, we are very keen on providing users with the most customization options possible, and we just got even better at it. The Secondary Colors feature goes beyond the previously available browser highlight colors and lets you choose an entirely different color scheme for your browser.

Those of you who like presets can transform your browser with Rose Quartz, Ultraviolet, Hackerman, Frutti di Mare and others. If you want to create your own color scheme, go wild with the countless available options based on the color wheel. On top of that, Opera GX can now also adapt your sidebar messenger icons to the chosen color theme. Cool, isn’t it?

Let’s put it this way: We are bidding farewell to unnecessary contrast and things that don’t match. But we didn’t stop at that. This version of Opera GX also includes a brand new set of wallpapers that match the look of the browser. 

GX Cleaner: a smart way to get rid of excess browser files

GX goes way beyond the capabilities of traditional browsers: it actually lets you tune the performance of your system with its CPU, RAM and Network Limiters to give you that extra boost when gaming. This time, we’re pushing it further with GX Cleaner to purge those old and unnecessary files.

GX Cleaner helps clean up the junk browser files you don’t use anymore (think cache, cookies, browsing history or downloaded files). It’s designed to improve browser performance while still allowing users to choose which files it deletes. 

This new tool provides several options for filtering files by date or specific browser location. This makes cleanup easy when you want to get rid of files that you haven’t used in, say, 6 months. We simply wanted Opera GX to always give you that fresh out-of-the-box feeling, without compromising functionality or ease of use. 

GX Cleaner makes sure you only purge the files you want to, without deleting anything important, and makes sure gamers have full control over their setups and their browser. The feature can be found in the sidebar.

Easy Files ensures you never go wrong when attaching a file

Easy Files is a unique Opera feature that comes to GX from our main desktop browser. When you attach or upload a file, Easy Files presents those which you’ve most recently downloaded, or the items you’ve last added to your clipboard, in an easy-to-click visual display. And yes, this includes your artwork from Opera’s Snapshot tool.

This means you no longer have to go digging through various folders every time you want to attach something to an email or a message. Instead, you get a clean display of the three files you’ve most recently interacted with. You can attach files in a single click, and move on with your life.

Opera GX has 5 million monthly active gamers and counting

Opera GX launched in June 2019 during the E3 Gaming Expo in Los Angeles. Our browser distinguishes itself with unique features tailored to the tastes and needs of gamers. Along with numerous customization options, sound effects, background music, Razer Chroma support and a gaming-inspired design, it includes CPU, RAM and Network Bandwidth limiters that make the browser less resource-hungry and leave more of the computer’s resources for gaming. The browser also includes a Hot Tabs Killer feature, which lets users “kill” the most resource draining tabs.

Opera GX has recently grown to more than 5 million monthly active gamers.

Happy browsing and may GX be with you!
