That's pretty impressive. Now if they can fix the "written in qt" bug, I'd be all set.

Why not just use a QT theme that renders similarly to the GTK+ theme you use? Seriously.

Klearlooks looks pretty similar to clearlooks and the interface fonts can be changed in Opera.

You have non-Qt browser alternatives already, as long as you don't mind quadrupling your resource useage. ;)

In reality, Opera is as much a Qt app as Firefox is a Gtk app. They make superficial use of the toolkits, but rely heavily on their own custom interfaces.

Which, come to think of it, does make it all the more remarkable that Opera is such a small, efficient app. compared to other non-standard-toolkit browsers... :O
