As a result, Opera 9.5 contains more than a year's worth of speed, standards and performance improvements."

Opera's fonts have always been fine for me on Gentoo and Arch, so it must be something missing on Slackware or your particular setup.

Flash has always worked for me too, but not always perfectly. I used to be unable to play embedded flvs in Opera, but they work fine for the most part now. It's still a little buggy with flash on multiple tabs.

I dunno about resources... In the past when I've compared it to Firefox it used a lot less, but I never really pay attention these days since it doesn't seem to affect the rest of my system when I run Opera.
