Hands down the best web browser for macOS icon macOS. It's way more lightweight, fast and less ressource hungry than Google Chrome icon Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox icon Mozilla Firefox. It's less customizable and has less extensions than the competition but it's enought for 95% of the people.

Although I like Safari on the Mac, it has no way of blocking any cookies whatsoever (third-party, or any others). Nor does it have a way of deleting history. SHAME. Granted, I have yet to find an actual browser that allows you to REALLY block cookies (even though they have settings that say to block cookies - those cookies still get set)

Safari can do that. You can delete your history with two clicks in the menu. Besides blocking third-party stuff on a per-site basis you can even block all cookies of the whole web, if desired.

Trash that hinders the development of the Internet. Safari does not properly support WebP, so we are still using trashy GIF.

This is factually wrong information. See caniuse.com or Safari 14 (released 2020) release notes.
