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

My only grip with Opera is its UI which has some annoying warts that prevent it to be truly great: for exemple Opera can reflow a webpage so that it fits your window's width which is really nice but you have to do it page per page, there's no way to toggle a switch 'fit width' to have it permanently: a great feature spoiled by a poor UI choice (and that's not the only one).

Tools > Preferences > Web Pages > Check "Fit to Width"

Please do research first.

Thanks a lot!

Now, they only have to:
- allow unclosing a window (not possible yet I've looked).
- making possible than when you close a tab with the mouse it goes to the next tab on the right (as FF does, it's customisable for the keyboard, but not for the mouse AFAIK)
- disable the scrolling when you click and miss a link (I've not really looked for this).

and I'd be happy with Opera's UI.

Yes it is.

Not sure what you mean.

It's not built-in, but there is a custom button to close a page and move to the next page to the right, instead of moving to the previous page.

See Page & Window Control Buttons > Close Page & Switch to Next One, just drag it up to one of your toolbars.
