Opera Software Opera has released an alpha build of their upcoming 9.5 release. "Following the release of Opera 9 last year, we re-wrote Opera's rendering engine for the coming Opera 9.5 release. As a result, Opera 9.5 contains more than a year's worth of speed, standards and performance improvements."

1) fonts look ugly in Slackware 12. This may well be my set up, but every other app has nicely AAed fonts.

For me they look just great on OpenSUSE.

2) No Flash support. As much as I dislike flash, it would be nice to have the option to run flash plugins from time to time.

Maybe check your path to Flash? How did you install it? From the package or from the Adobe web site? Works fine here also.

3) it's a little bit too resource hungry.

Here it uses 13MB or RAM. Firefox uses 52MB.
