No date? No worries. For one day only, Opera GX is becoming Opera GF – introducing a chocolate box of Mods and Valentine’s-themed customization options. So whether you’re with someone or not, with GX you can mod your perfect online experience, knowing your favorite browser has got your back this Valentine’s Day.
“Whether you hate being alone on Valentine’s Day, or couldn’t care less about it – with the Beta launch of GX Mods, you can do whatever makes you happy this 14th February. With complete control of your browsing experience you can customize how elements like wallpapers and sounds all work together, enabling you to create something unique,” said Maciej Kocemba, Product Director at Opera GX, adding: “The modding era on Opera GX has officially begun, so stay tuned for more awesome customization upgrades coming soon.”
On Valentine’s Day, when users fire up Opera GF they’ll be invited to activate the special Valentine’s Day themed Mod, where they’ll be greeted by GX Aura – Opera’s GX’s digital mascot and stand-in ‘date’ for the day. The Mod is packed with thoughtful, humorous, Valentine’s-themed touches, designed to distract away from the fact that some users may be single or lonely on Valentine’s Day.
The Mod will include a special wallpaper, unique UI and keyboard sound effects, background music and a custom shader spreading hearts across the screen. Each of these elements come together to simulate a perfect day out with GX Aura while you spend your time indoors browsing the Internet.
The Valentine’s Day Mod also showcases the depth and customization potential of GX Mods, a new feature which also launches in Beta on 14th February, signaling the start of a new era of modification across Opera GX. With GX Mods, users will be able to modify their browser in countless different ways, with access to dozens of pre-made Mods at launch. This will be followed-up with a soon to launch Mod store, where users will even be able to upload their own Mods. How these elements all work together will be completely up to you – and the browsing experience you create will be completely unique.
