In the browser category, I have used Midori before, as it was the default for a light distro I tried years ago (cannot remember which). It was fast but feature-poor, as I recall. Might be quite different now.

The one that looked most interesting is Komodo, but it appears to be Windows only.

Midori always crashed on me. I think it was the default for the Bunsen Labs distro, maybe?

Strangely, the Comodo browser seems to be buried. I had to use a search engine to find it; there wasn't a link from their main page and the link they gave didn't work. I  found it on their certificate authority site. That's too bad it's just for Windows. Apparently, this article is an updated version of one that was posted back in 2019 (judging by the comments).
