Sadly you can't install the GTK3x software either- Sorry-

You can now build and install software which requires GTK3 using these commands:

I prefer Opera which can easily be configured to preserve my privacy. My secondary browser is qupzilla which is still a little rough but headed in the right direction.

FWIW, it's running just fine here on several CentOS 6.7 installations.
How long is FF 45 supported until?

I looked here but didn't see what the date is for LTS-

What version of Opera are you using? With the "old" version of Opera-12.16 and earlier, that was possible. With the "newer" blink/chromium based version I don't believe that is allowed unless the management at the "new" Opera have had an unexpected change of heart.

OK, I've just been running both the winXp and Linux versions of the "new" Opera.
While both Vivaldi and the "new" Opera have been making changes and adding features,
my first reaction to both of these browsers is, "If I wanted to run Chromium, I would run Chromium."
Both Vivaldi and the "new" Opera call home. In the case of the "new" Opera it calls, 82.145.223.176, and if you deny that, it won't work.
It also won't let you delete, i.e., remove the yahoo or bing or google search engine options.
For those reasons, I've uninstalled the "new" Opera and re-installed Opera-12.16.

Firefox version n will be supported for approximately twenty minutes, at which version n+1 will appear.
