Opera GX Mobile Beta for Android and iOS is available
When Opera Software launched its new Opera GX web browser last year, it only did so for desktop operating systems, not mobile operating systems.
Opera GX has proven to be a real success for Opera Software, and the company has released several updates since the initial release that have extended the functionality of the browser. The updates introduced a network limiter, support for Discord, playing background music, and more.
The main idea behind Opera GX was to create a browser for gamers. The distinguishing factors are the colorful browser interface and the integration of news and information about the game.
Today, Opera Software ad the beta launch of Opera GX Mobile for Android and iOS. Interested users can download the browser for their devices directly from the announcement blog post on the Opera website.
The ad highlights the following characteristics:

On top of that, you can easily sync your mobile and desktop browsers with the Flow feature – it lets you share files, notes, videos, and game content like walkthroughs, tutorials, and creations. characters between your devices. Plus, there’s instant access to GX Corner – a one-click space for game news, deals, and a game release schedule.
Opera GX Mobile displays a handful of important options on first start. You can enable ad blocking and blocking cookie dialogs alongside blocking cryptomining scripts, switch to a different theme, and choose between standard navigation and what Opera Software calls Fast Action Button. All these options can be changed later in the settings.
