The latest Opera works very well. I don't think it is lighter than chromium as it now shares the same engine but overall it works very nicely. The latest beta incorporates adblocking and VPN. The adblocking seems to work pretty well but the VPN is still buggy.

While that is the primary issue, even relatively simple sites (e.g.
Wikipedia) have rendering issues.

Yeah, I have a hard time with anything Google these days (scary
behemoth), but I've come to prefer Chromium over Iceweasel and haven't
found anything else that works reliably (though it has been a while
since I've used Opera).

I wish I had your optimism, I'm really amazed how little traction TDE
has, even more so Konqueror - thanks in part to the Dolphin over
Konqueror boondoggle. I don't know the current state, but the
Konqueror webkit engine (option in KDE4?) wasn't reliably better. In
any case, it's a welcome surprise to hear that someone else still
finds Konqueror indispensable.
