If you want lightweight with AdBlockPlus and NoScript, you should use links2. However, if you need something similar to that with a graphical front end, you may want to take a look at epiphany. It's a very nice and fast native to gnome browser with a few plugins. Not sure about ABP, but it's definitely fast and lightweight for graphical.

I don't browse I Opera :-P I also have firefox installed just in case.
I don't know about ABP but for NoScript I found the 2 first links of this (http://www.google.gr/search?hl=el&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla%3Aen-US%3Aofficial&hs=YtI&q=NoScript+%2B+opera&btnG=%CE%91%CE%BD%CE%B1%CE%B6%CE%AE%CF%84%CE%B7%CF %83%CE%B7&meta=)

KMeleon (http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/) is supposed to be a good, light browser for Windows.

I use Konqueror because it is well integrated into KDE, is fast starting up and supports other KDE applications (like KPDF) embedded in it.
