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

Still issues with applets:
http://lwjgl.org/applet - applet stalls downloading.

Wisth they would use the proper java plugin instead of their own.

I have an issue with your applet. Namely, it eats every resource imaginable framecounting three 3D rendered gears turning so your employer can tell whether their game engine is viable or not.

I'd also like to know why your game library needs special permissions.

BTW, the loading isn't "stalling," it's an issue with your libraries needing individual permissions unlocked. Reload the page and you'll see the thermometer move further then the browser asks a final time for permissions. Given that Opera is a codebase designed for both desktop and embedded applications, it's understandable that it doesn't hew to the one platform which requires plugins to access Java.
