My main gripe about Opera is it's interface - it doesn't "blend in" at all on any platform. By this I mean that the widgets, icons and the file dialog look, feel and behave different than the platform's native ones.
[...]
Now, please don't tell me about skins. They're not a solution to this problem (or problems). They're actually the source of this problem (at least partly).

Actually, on Windows it does blend in - the default setup include a Windows Native skin that uses standard elements. I even used to use WindowBlinds to skin it!
