Actually, Opera and Firefox both integrate nicely in Windows. The problem is in Linux (obviously). Opera integrates nicely in KDE, and doesn't in Gnome. Firefox integrates beautifully in Gnome but even with the gtk-qt-engine, it doesn't look that well in KDE. The worst in Firefox on Linux are the widgets. "Submit" and "Radio" buttons are so jagged and ugly. There's a fix, I have told the Firefox team about it a few years ago when I started with Linux, but as usual, the request has been discarted. Some one also found a fix:
