Opera browser text doesn't look as good as Mozilla

Just wondering why when reading text in Opera browser isn't as clear as in Mozilla. Seems like the text are jagged and resized. But even after resizing text, it still doesn't look good. But when I cut and pasted the same webpage on Mozilla, everything looks perfect?

It depends on the browser to how the fonts are rendered. I'm guesing that you used the static opera install? I'n not sure what difference that makes overall to the fonts, but I know that my opera rendering is not as good as galeon (or mozilla).

I find it's more to do with the website - nice and antialiased in some, jagged in others. Mozilla is generally better, though.
