Absolutely! TLS and certificates are the major culprit. A pity apple suppors Safari so little on old MacOS. If you think I got Edge on Windows 7…
Perhaps not in the same league of Crhomium, but I can also reccomment ArcticFox on 10.7. I just tested the current git development and it appears to still cope with downloads at Apple fine.
Being the current main driver behind it, I'm a bit biased.. but I just love how its classic interface looks on 10.7 (and even windows 7, compared to current Quantum FF)

On older sytems, you need to expect to have a couple of apps and juggle them for compatibility, being unsupported.

Compared to 4.3, it sometimes has troubles displaying documentation (I think it is actually for 10.8 and thus expects a newer WebKit) but for the rest it works fine. I just rebuilt GNUMail with it now.
