Luckily you can change that in Opera and give it the
"traditional" style. Still Opera suffers from ongoing
"disimprovement" (e. g. reduction of functionality in
file save dialog or printing support).

Maybe Java? Some old fasioned guys still use it... ;-)

Even though I don't like "Flash" especially because it
has become what animated GIFs have been used for in the
past - replacement for HTML, nagging, stealing focus,
aggressive advertising with sound and so on - it perfectly
works with Opera.

That's my "problem" with Chromium and Firefox too. I like
the possibility to remove visual controls (red "X" button
on tabs for example) without losing functionality (middle
click on tab closes tab). From my very individual experience,
Opera offers the best integration of mouse and keyboard. It's
sufficiently fast and renders stuff acceptably correct.
