I'am running Opera v11.11, but I had to patch the NetBSD kernel to
avoid kernel dumps when starting Opera. v11.11 does sometimes freeze or
crash, especially when I have a lot of open tabs. Newer versions of
Opera crash too frequently to be of any use for me.
However, the most annoying issue is that the newest flashplayer I can
get to work is v9r280, and image and sound are out of sync :-(
Flash videos played in Opera are temporarily saved in /tmp as
/tmp/Flash...... They can be played (almost) in sync with mplayer :-|
Btw I am running NetBSD v5.1. Let me know if you want a copy of my
obscure kernel patching guide (110 lines of commands and comments).
