There was one complaint about plugins.

Cool! The complaint you get about the plugins is due to the fact the Opera FreeBSD build machine uses a different set of libraries than us (and the latest release of FreeBSD). I have a library you can try if you wish.

IMO, the biggest problem I had with the *BSD Opera is getting it to use any other plugins (flash, lava, realplayer, etc.). I ended up using linux-opera. While it "works" I must admit to feeling some shame having to employ this workaround just to be able to handle all the "needed components" of the web.
