Opera GX controls Razer Chroma even when not in the foreground

  • Apologies if this has already been posted before, search results yielded nothing.

    I have a Razer Blade with a built-in Chroma Keyboard, and when enabling Chroma in Opera GX, it overrides my Synapse Studio settings entirely for as long as the browser is open. This means that as long as Opera GX is running in the background, Synapse ignores my game-specific keyboard lighting settings and desktop lighting settings. This is pretty undesirable, because I have keys set to light in different colors based on the actions in the game (WASD, interaction keys, etc).

    I'm not sure if this is intended behavior or not, but I think it would make more sense to have the Opera GX-specific Chroma settings only take effect when the browser is in the foreground, set this behavior as default, and allow the user to decide if to keep that behavior as persistent. Given that Opera GX is designed to run in the background while the user is gaming, it would make sense to have better interoperability with Chroma and Synapse.

  • Go to the connect panel and move the thing with the opera symbol down to the bottom of the list, and games that use chroma connect (apex legends, fortnite, doom etc.) will be prioritized above opera.
