In terms of accessibility, they broke the text-to-speech function in v9.5 and haven't fixed it yet (unless they did in the newest beta, which I highly doubt). Not only that, but they have ignored any threads created about it on their forums.

Anyway, I figured out how to get that working through other applications, so have happily switched back to Firefox:

Opera is a TERRIBLE browser. It was this one feature that kept me using it, and I had to hack it just to get that one thing working right. I lament that I have to keep it installed to take advantage of the voice capability, but at least I don't have to use it anymore. Even if they did fix this, I don't think I'd ever go back.
