I have use both and if you need flash very often, I'd suggest 
linux-opera.  It tends to handle flash video (google video) better.  I 
currently have native opera.  It just takes a few second longer to see 
the flash video.  It does not bother me...but it may bother others.  Try
 both ( one at a time ) and see the difference for yourself.
note:  I don't use KDE...don't know if that might make a difference in 
resource loads.
FreeBSD 6.0-RELEASE i386
