Now if they've done something about the rendering engine and it renders as nice as Firefox, I'm sold. I'l have to take a look.

As nice as? Eh, do you mean improve its standards compliancy or the speed at which it renders a page?

I'll think you'll find that Opera's record on standards compliancy has always been high. Its CSS compliancy is higher than the Firefox's. Performance has been up there too. (Forgive the vagueness and lack of references as I'm replying from what I have read from memory)
