Normally I am a Linux user and I am using Palemoon as my primary internet browser there. Previous to that I was a sworn Firefox Nightly user but since Microsoft has intervened and Mozilla decided to ruin Firefox by introducing Australis. Somehow I survived it when I switched to Palemoon, which still sports the old good Firefox look with somewhat optimized performance. Chrome was never an option for me since it's basically built for Google to spy on you.

Now I am unfortunately "forced" to use a an Apple MacBook Pro with OS X. Palemoon is not available for OS X. I've tried Komodo's browsers but they are for Windows only. And no, Tor is not an option for me too.

Can somebody suggest me some secure and customizable browser, based either on Chromium or Firefox or something else?

    What exactly do you mean with "secure"? Secure defaults (is there any browser that claims not to have these?), audited code, good history of fixing security issues, good history of having only few security issues, certain encryption features, certain add-ons, …? – unor Jan 10 '15 at 15:41

I would suggest taking a look at Opera.

  • Multi-platform including OS-X
  • Pleasant to use
  • includes PDF viewer
  • claims good security
  • lots of customisation options

I have not heard any moans about the security as I have with IE & Co.
