This is big news, the gamer orientated browser, Opera GX is now available on iOS and Android. Why is this big news? Because for me, Opera GX has been the fastest and lightest browser I have ever used. Some of us at team TC have been using the Opera GX mobile browser and it certainly keeps that crown, for me at least, of being the best browser available, to date.
Check out the press release below:
