One of our least favourite browsers on this list, K-Meleon is the most popular browser for people to complain about us not testing when we write about other, more popular options. Having given K-Meleon a full test, we now know exactly who most of these people are: coders and hackers, and it's clear why they love this browser.
K-Meleon's is much more customisable than most others, but it requires some knowledge of computer code to get the most out of it. Aesthetically it looks like an old Firefox, and having been built upon the same engine as Mozilla's Firefox, renders pages well.
No more do we question why people pledge their allegiance to this browser -- these people are hackers and developers who adore tweaking and customising. If you're a very advanced user and are familiar with coding, this could be your new best friend. But its dated UI and relatively poor feature set will keep it out of the hands of even intermediate computer users.
