K-Meleon is a fast and customizable lightweight web browser for Windows, based on the rendering engine of Mozilla. K-Meleon is free (open source) software ...

If K-Meleon is based on the Mozilla engine, then I would try the original: Firefox. While designed to work on older computers, K-Meleon does not have as large a community of developers as does Mozilla's Firefox, so one would expect the support to be somewhat less, especially since its user base is so small. I suspect that Firefox plug-ins, of which there are a far greater number than for K-M, will not work, thus limiting the amount of tailoring to fit your needs.
In particular, the K-Meleon team might not be as fast to issue security updates as are the folks at Firefox; in some cases, they would have to wait for Ff to issue critical patches before they could begin to patch K-M. This alone, given the dangerous atmosphere when browsing, would commend Firefox over K-Meleon.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
