I see on this website screenshots number 5 and 6 -- what is used to to get these style of scrollbars? When I launch Opera I get a very ugly scrollbar that does not fit the look of the window manager whatsoever.

The solution I found was to load a gtk theme by creating a symlink (~/.gtkrc-2.0) that points to the gtk theme's gtkrc (/usr/share/themes/themename/gtk-2.0/gtkrc or ~/.themes/themename/gtk-2.0/gtkrc depending where the theme is installed and assuming it's a gtk 2.0 theme).
