Absolutely. With each successive release in the 6.x series, I've been experiencing more of the sort of stability that made me leave Netscape.
The upside is that Opera keeps plenty of state, so when I restart, I'm back with all of my (dozens) of windows open. However, I distinctly remember it not crashing nearly as much back at 5.x.
I'm also noticing that 6.11 periodically flips out and starts chewing up CPU time like mad, hitting 90+%.
I'm a bit afraid to revert to an earlier version, though, since I'm not entirely sure my bookmarks and other such state would survive the trip back in time.
Perhaps it's time to install a centralized bookmark manager and upgrade my Mozilla install :)

Frankly, such an idea is necessary when you're sharing a source control system. Otherwise, the diffs get cluttered with a bunch of meaningless whitespace changes. Better to run "indent" on the way in, using an agreed-upon canonical form for the repository, then run "indent" on the way out to format things to your personal taste.
