What can be done to make a setup for super secured web browsing?

I've been looking at something like this: Windows host > Sandboxie > Virtualbox > Linux Guest > Web Browser (Chrome with uBlock Origins & uMatrix addons)

Some questions I do have:

1) What Linux? For OS's I've heard of using Gentoo Hardened, Qubes OS, Alpine Linux, Debian, etc., and installing PaX/Grsecurity on it.

2) Malware bypass Linux? Does the strength of the linux OS make a difference when it's a virtual machine?

3) Run as LUA? I've heard mention about running Virtualbox as lua. Is that something that helps/can be done?

4) Text based browsers? I've heard mention of Lynx for browsing.

Thank you very much.

  • Secure browsing comes at the expense of usability. What are your use cases and what are the threats you want to protect against? After all, you could go as basic as using curl instead of an actual browser. – Arminius Mar 12 '17 at 2:14
  • I'm looking to be able to use Javascript, cookies, and Flash, when needed to view a website's entire content. And have it setup in a way that I can't get hacked should I encounter a drive by download of malware from those sources. – user148283 Mar 12 '17 at 2:38
  • just make an OS image that you can quickly re-install each time you use it, so that it doesn't matter what's left behind and there's no accumulated info to leak. – dandavis Mar 12 '17 at 7:52
