I like Chrome for Android. It's pretty fast.
Bun on my PC I always use Firefox. It's the best for browsing and testing websites.

If you have a Google account you can turn off tracking

about Google Search and Google Chrome · · -1 Helpful

Google doesn't allow you to turn off tracking my default. But if you have a Google account, you can turn off 'Web and Search history.' That prevents Google from tracking you.

You can still see ads. That means tracking.

Google is bad. Use DuckDuckGo, it has more privacy, little to no spam, !bang, 0-click info, and tons of customizations. Google offers none of this.

I'm afraid of Google. There is an episode on the old TV show The Twilight Zone. Martians come down to earth with a book titled "To Serve Man' They claim they came to earth to save the earths population and start transporting earthlings to the moon.Everything looked good for awhile until one day an earthling discovered that the book "To Serve Man " is a cookbook. Google reminds me a lot of that episode only now Google is the martians. They collect way too much information on internet users for my sense of safety ,comfort and well being.

Until yesterday I used Google for Web Search. But now, everyday I search with more comfort with "Add to Search Bar".
Try it and forget all other methods of searching in the web.
