Despite the fact that Opera GX is still a slightly tweaked version of Opera for PC that everyone knows, one focused on the segment of gaming and, unlike the current edition, only available for Windows, the company is getting down to business and the mod function is another example of this.
Named by its creator as “the browser for gamers«Opera GX was born four years ago to cover, or rather to open up, a niche that no one has demanded. And yet, the company has not given up in its efforts to provide its own identity to what, it is worth repeating, is still a more colorful variant of the normal and ordinary Opera.
It has been in this last half of its life, moreover, when Opera GX has begun to acquire a little more relevance, both internally and vice versa. A notable milestone in this trajectory was the launch of its mobile version, at the same time that it received new features from the main edition, such as improved VPN support or, more recently, integration with ChatGPT.
All in all, features like Opera GX Village or this one that concerns us about Mods, are both significant and very particular elements of what Opera Software intends for the web browser. A Mods feature that the company bills as “the new age of deep browser customization.” What is the invention, exactly?
From what they explain and show, Opera GX Mods are nothing more and nothing less than that, browser modifications that go beyond changing one theme for another and that “completely transform the way Opera GX looks, sounds and feels.” behaves». In essence, Mods allow you to customize aspects such as the theme, wallpaper, shadows, background music and even the sounds of the keysdepending on the mod.
These Opera GX Mods are available for free installation from the GX Store and those created by the community are added to those available by default; they can be used as global themes, mix them, create new ones… A full-fledged freak that yes, has its point. And it has it not only for players, any minimally gourmet user would enjoy it. But…
But You know what happens when you put so much history in the browser TRUE? That you are going to boost your consumption, not to mention how heavy it has to be to put up with animated wallpapers on the new tab page, little music, key sounds… Come on, everything that is attractive a priori has a point of potential repellency that may not compensate someone who is not a fan of these trifles or is over fifteen years old.
Be that as it may, if you feel like trying it, the first thing is to install Opera GX, the second thing is to visit the store and the third thing is to experiment. At the very least, you hang out. And then back to Chrome(!).
