Here’s some excellent news for all you Opera fans out there. The company has announced that they have brought Opera GX, their gamer-optimized browser, to the Microsoft Store on Windows 11.

This version of the browser is built for gamers, both in design and functionality, with unique features such as CPU, RAM, and Network limiters to help you get the most out of both gaming and browsing.

Get ready to access your favorite gaming browser a lot easier

The fact that Opera GX is now available for use on the Microsoft Store means that Microsoft decided to bring more browser options for those interested in a different experience than Edge.

And, this latest version of GX also comes with native Discord and Twitch access in the sidebar as well as Razer Chroma and Corsair iCUE integration, so you can sync reactive lighting with your browser actions.

Furthermore, GX now includes the offline game Operius, a new arcade space shooter to play in your browser when the WiFi is out. Pretty neat, right?

We can all agree that, for Opera, this is a major win, as the Microsoft Store is a massive distribution channel and a way of reaching Windows users directly.

It might not sound like much to some, but the fact that you eliminate the need to search for it on the web and download it directly from the Store is really useful.

Easier access to Opera GX also means users get a free, unlimited, built-in VPN and ad blocker, as well as built-in messengers and social networks in the sidebar.

The Opera team says the move was in response to the request of users that the browser be made more easily available to Windows users and thanked Microsoft for allowing alternate browsers into the Store.

Let’s just say that Mozilla’s Firefox isn’t the only foreign browser you will find on the Windows 11 Store anymore.

All you have to do in order to get Opera GX on your setup is simply open the Store from the taskbar, search for it, and install it. It’s simple, free, and it only takes a couple of minutes. A much faster way to get Opera GX is to download and install it from Opera’s official website.
