As we’re on the cusp of Halloween and a night of trick-or-treating, there’s always an app that helps us get into the Christmas spirit, and this year’s example is the Opera GX browser. It is available on iOS and Android with a secret theme.
Opera GX is, based on our tests, a fun web browser with a focus on games. On the desktop, it allows you to view Twitch streams and Discord chats in the browser. You can’t do the same in the mobile version of Opera GX, but it still has the Halloween theme.
Granted, while it’s a holiday of scares and terror, especially when it comes to games (opens in new tab), Opera has a hidden orange theme to mark Halloween. I visited the team earlier this month where they showed me how to access it.
How to Turn Opera GX into Scary Orange
This is a simple case that starts with pressing the Opera logo in the lower right corner. Scroll down until you find Definitionsand press it.
You will see a ‘Appearance‘ title at the top. Prepress this five times. If done correctly, you’ll see a row of pumpkins start to appear and then suddenly everything will turn orange, or ‘Veggie’ as Opera GX calls it.
If you’re having trouble with this, scroll down and triple tap under ‘Version’ to reset the theme.
Using Opera GX with an orange theme is great. It’s the perfect shade for Halloween.
The only issue I’ve noticed is that the fonts on the homepage don’t change in dark mode, so some black text that hasn’t changed can be hard to see. Also, it’s a shame there isn’t an app icon that has the Opera logo made like a pumpkin, but maybe next year.
Regardless, it’s a small price to pay for a secret theme that marks the holiday – now how about a Christmas theme hidden on the side with the Opera logo turned into a trinket?
