chess24 and Opera GX: the perfect combination

Opera GX, the new gaming browser from Norway-based Opera, will enhance your online chess experience. Along with its featured Twitch integration, GX lets you pop out any video, including chess24 shows, video series and live commentary, keeping it on top while you alternate between work and play. Tools such as RAM and CPU limiting, a built-in VPN and a battery saver should appeal to all tech-savvy chess fans! Get 25% off chess24 Premium when trying out the Opera GX browser.

Opera’s existing products are already trusted by over 350 million people around the world, and Opera GX, launched this year, was created as the world’s first-ever gaming browser.

Since chess24 launched in 2014, we’ve been at the forefront of all things video-related, bringing live tournament commentary by the likes of Peter Svidler and Jan Gustafsson. We also provide Banter Blitz shows with stars such as World Champion Magnus Carlsen and, of course, hundreds of hours of exclusive chess videos by top players and coaches. Our YouTube channel has long-since surpassed 100,000 subscribers, and this year our new Twitch channel has become another avenue for enjoying chess wisdom.

What does Opera GX have to offer chess fans? We love its powerful video pop-out feature, which makes it possible to seamlessly watch all chess24 videos in a resizable pop-up window which remains visible on top of other tabs, whether you’re browsing, playing chess or finishing other work. 

With Opera GX you can watch Magnus Carlsen's seconds talk about the Carlsen-Caruana match while doing other things  

Twitch integration, which you can find in the browser’s sidebar, gives you an overview of all the channels you follow and will notify you when chess24 is live on Twitch with a new show.

Chess players are often power users running resource-hungry chess engines in the background, so Opera GX’s built-in CPU and RAM limiters can definitely help make your experience smoother and more enjoyable. If your goal is to stream your chess-playing, you’ve come to the perfect place, and you can also check out the latest deals for games in the GX corner.

Get 25% off an annual Magnus Trainer membership or chess24 Premium Membership just by trying out Opera GX! To claim your discount, simply visit the links above using your Opera browser.
