Just a few answers to questions and a couple of precisions:

As far as I know, no browser on the market supports SVG full specification 
completely until today. The best support is performed by Firefox with its 
SVG Full 1.1 technology preview (full support is not yet achieved)
Opera does not crash with SVG full, it only doesn't render some attributes 
that are not part of the SVG Basic or Tiny specifications.
Also, Opera doesn't have a SVG plugin, the SVG renderer is part of the 
browser's engine (as Firefox).
Personally I use Opera 9.00 (version 8 is now discontinued) to browse the 
clipart, and had only few problems rendering the cliparts, and generally 
these problematic cliparts were generated by Illustrator and were containing 
errors (SVG was not standard compliant).

I won't say that Firefox is "the best solution" for Win, Linux and Mac, 
since there are version of Opera 9 for these platforms too. Also, fot the 
Mac, there is Camino which supports SVG from its 1.0.2 version
