Opera 5.0 fonts look terrible


Has anyone run Opera 5.0 in 1280x1024 resolution? The fonts for all the websites I go to look terrible.

Try Opera 6.0... if that doesn't work, try choosing your own fonts in the preferences.

Changing the fonts in Opera only change the fonts for the Opera menus, not the fonts for the actual text in the web pages.

Opera 6.0 is still in beta, I'll just wait for it to be stable.

I've been using it for a couple of weeks and havent had any trouble.

BTW, there's 2 sections for fonts in my preferences (dunno if v5 is different). One section is for the menu fonts and the other is for the web page fonts.

Yea I found that section, I changed my font type and it helped a lot, but there are still some parts on some pages that have garbled text fonts.
