LVL 1 (core: 63.0.3368.54979) – 2019-09-11
There are two brand new features in this update: Network Limiter and Release Calendar. Let's start with Network Limiter. You will find it in the GX Control panel along with CPU and Memory Limiter. It allows you to set the maximum download and upload speed that Opera GX can achieve. Values are expressed in MB/s and KB/s which is pretty reasonable measurement when we're talking about download and upload. However when you perform network speed tests (for instance: speedtest.net) results are expressed in Mbps and Kbps, which are bits not bytes. There are 8 bits in each byte so 1 MB/s = 8 Mbps (more info).
GX Corner gets an update. There's a new section called Release Calendar, which features upcoming game releases from various platforms. We think it's handy widget that will save you quite a bit of time.
LVL 1 (core: 63.0.3368.54789) – 2019-09-06
We are proud to announce that Opera GX won Red Dot award for its unique user interface and we counted over 1M downloads so far.
This is the first build based on Opera 63. It introduces more GX changes as well as new features that come with Opera 63. For instance you can enjoy improved snapshot tool with highlight and text tool as well as an option to save screenshots as PDFs.
