Not that bad..

The Opera 9.5b is actually pretty good. I like the native sync support linked to you myopera account. My BIGGEST complaint with Opera is something that's gone un-addressed. I can't use it for dev work or tunneling because the don't allow you to trust certs on the fly. In every other browser, you get a popup if the cert is funky, and you are given a chance to accept or reject....Opera...nah it flat out rejects the connection, anyone ever found a way around this?

huh? Do you mean that other browsers don't give you a modal dialog to deal with it? Because, for me at least, Opera pops up a window when it's funky, and I can just hit 'accept' - this might not work so well for tunnelers, tho.

Not for me, or at least last time I checked a 9.x version. For instance, I have some appliances that I manage. Because of their location in the environment, I have to tunnel through a jumpbox to access the gui. This of course changes the real address I am accessing from my local machine to say https://127.0.0.1:5555. Opera flat out tells me the cert is invalid, with no chance to accept the cert with the mismatching...Why? (shrug) you got me. Work's fine for literally every other browser on Windows and Linux I've used, only Opera bombs out.
