Seasons greetings GX fans, there’s a nice holiday surprise coming your way: Opera GX has just become available in the Microsoft Store on Windows. The Opera GX browser is built for gamers, both in design and functionality, with unique features like CPU, RAM and Network limiters to help you get the most out of both gaming and browsing. 

The addition of Opera GX to the Microsoft Store means that Windows users have easier access to and more choice in picking their preferred browser. The latest version of GX also comes with native Discord and Twitch access in the sidebar as well as Razer Chroma and Corsair iCUE integration, which means you can sync reactive lighting with your browser actions. Additionally, Opera GX now includes the offline game Operius, a new arcade space shooter to play in your browser when the WiFi is out.

For Opera, the Microsoft Store is a great and relevant distribution channel and a way of reaching Windows users directly, as they can now get the Opera GX browser directly in their OS, without the need to look for it on the web. And easier access to Opera GX means users get a free, unlimited, built-in VPN and ad blocker, as well as built-in messengers and social networks in the sidebar, allowing Windows users who are into gaming to get a true browser alternative that’s designed for them.

We are very thankful to you, our users, for supporting Opera GX and requesting that it be available in the Microsoft Store on Windows. Opening the Microsoft Store to other browsers is a step in the right direction for more user choice.

To download Opera GX, open the Microsoft Store on your Windows machine and search for it. That’s it. You can also always go to opera.com/gx and download it directly from Opera.

Happy holidays, and happy browsing!
