There are many good alternatives to Google Chrome, if you want to enjoy the compatibility and security of chromium project along with privacy Brave is a really great option.
Here’s a study on browser security and privacy from School of Computer Science & Statistics,
Trinity College Dublin, Ireland
Conclusion in the paper:
Edge and Yandex were the worst privacy offenders while chrome, Firefox and safari provide medium level of privacy (Firefox can provide high level of security but not with default options).
The paper concludes Brave as the most privacy respecting browser out of the box.
STOP USING PROPRIETARY BROWSERS LIKE GOOGLE-CHROME, MICROSOFT-EDGE and SAFARI IMMEDIATELY
Especially advice friends and family to quit using Google Chrome and use brave, Vivaldi, Opera and other chromium based browsers instead to prevent google from monopolizing and breaking the internet
