What Opera GX features are shared with other Opera Browsers?

  • I've always though that browsers were kind of business oriented looking with styles that are plain, easy to manage, and offer little customizability.

    When I can, I prefer to have a personalized experience and I feel that OperaGX does a lot to do that for me. My experience has been overwhelmingly positive for OperaGX and I have gotten a few of my friends to download it.

    My day-to-day life surrounds using multiple different technologies, (phone, tablet, computer) and I like to have a similar experience between them all, when I can.

    There is no OperaGX for mobile so I was considering downloading Opera, but I can't seem to find information regarding how OperaGX works with Opera, on mobile, if at all. History, passwords, are the default features I look for, but this could evolve to be more powerful with all the features OperaGX has to offer.

    Is there some sort of documentation guide that outlines all the ways that the different Opera browsers work with each other, what features are shared or disabled, and that sort of thing?

  • @psyaryu What exactly do you want to know?

  • Well, the download page for GX gives an overview of the general features. GX has all of the primary features of the standard version but with a load of great new features that may or may not be released in the standard version.

    That said, if you're asking about what data will be synced if you make the switch from standard Opera to GX... as far as I know, all data that you have set to sync will auto-sync to GX (except speed dial, I believe) as long as you're signed in to your Opera account on both. Don't quote me on that but I run GX on my PC and standard Opera on my laptop; all that I have set to sync works on both of them without any noticeable lag.

  • I remember that last year, Opera for mobile had Sync, but Opera Touch didn't. Does Opera Touch already support Sync?

  • @david27 Totally off topic but the answer is no.

    Not off topic at all, but maybe you didn't read it all...
    Thanks.

  • @david27 Anything not related to Opera GX is off-topic here.

  • @psyaryu About synchronization between Opera browsers, you can read here: https://help.opera.com/en/latest/features/#sync

  • @psyaryu Opera GX is basically Opera for desktops (an old version of it) with some exclusive features, mainly the ones listed under the GX section of the settings page.

  • Thank you everyone for the responses!

    If I create a footprint on my computer, I'd like to take advantage of that footprint on my mobile device. This boils down to passwords and search history.

    I'm new to the Opera ecosystem, but it seems to be a common practice that these products are going to take advantage of what they can from the other Opera products.

    GX is going to have core features that only GX can do, but for the features that are supported by the other Opera browsers they will sync nicely.

    The sync link is a good read for understanding how to make sure my browsers are configured so thank you for that reference!
