Opera Software Opera has released an alpha build of their upcoming 9.5 release. "Following the release of Opera 9 last year, we re-wrote Opera's rendering engine for the coming Opera 9.5 release. As a result, Opera 9.5 contains more than a year's worth of speed, standards and performance improvements."

"Opera's fonts have always been fine for me on Gentoo and Arch, so it must be something missing on Slackware or your particular setup. "

I suspected that may have been the case.

"Flash has always worked for me too, but not always perfectly. I used to be unable to play embedded flvs in Opera, but they work fine for the most part now. It's still a little buggy with flash on multiple tabs. "

Flash 7 or 8 used to work, but I can't seem to get Flash 9 to work. Maybe some tinkering will fix it. Not really had the time to properly investigate the issue.

"I dunno about resources... In the past when I've compared it to Firefox it used a lot less, but I never really pay attention these days since it doesn't seem to affect the rest of my system when I run Opera."

This used to be the case for me too but FF2 seems much nippier on my system than Opera. Again, this might just be down to Opera's defaults not being ideal for my system.
