Try opera, edge and all the above recommend ones. You will soon find your huckleberry. I still use chrome. I find edge way faster than chrome but I still use chrome for some reason.

+1 for Edge. It's been surprisingly fast and no issues with finding extensions because it's still based on chromium. Also love the web capture feature from Edge which basically lets you easily take and paste screenshots. A complete lifesaver in my opinion. I also tried using Brave but I need to use Google translate from time to time (buying from foreign ecommerce websites) and it doesn't really deal well with that.

thanks for reminder, I remember using Brave sometime back. Trying it once again, all fine since last 4 days.
Definitely it's noticeably faster than chrome and without google's bloatware.
duckduckgo isn't a vast search engine, so using google engine with Brave.

I used to be a loyal chrome user. Tried Microsoft Edge for 2 day and not going back to chrome now.
All the add-ons I need are there on edge too, importing bookmarks and saved passwords is also possible.

Try the collections feature you will love it.
Edge also has some privacy features and ad blocking features baked in so do explore that too

I know what analytics is. But if MS is implementing it on level 3 out of 5 then Google is doing it 5 out of 5. Google literally earns based on what we browse and showing relevant ads based on that. Haven't used firefox after 2015. Chrome was better than ff at that time. Not sure how much has it evolved since then. Will surely give it a try. Btw what's "noscript" in firefox and what does it do?

Wanted to know if I'm the only one or you guy are facing the issue too

Do you guy's ever notice some times when you start your pc, just doing browsing like basic(using "Chrome browser") task and suddenly out of nowhere cpu fan crank up and you hear fan noise
This happen to me, so I open my task manager to check which process is taking so much CPU resources to result in fan noise.
Since then every ***cking time I check task manager it is always one of the many task of the chrome which is taking almost 50% of CPU recourses
So i just end that task and CPU fan goes to normal speed, but I notice ending this task does not effect any running tabs in chrome neither chrome stop or crash
My question is if ending the task which is taking 50% CPU resource doesn't affect the functionality of the chrome then why it is there in a first place

To solve this problem I try to uninstall and reinstall chrome but problem still persists, i have another pc at home which also have same problem, I also notice a trend in this problem, no matter what pc you have the task take 50% resources of total available CPU resources for instance i have i7 4600u(2cores 4threads) at office and r7 2700x at home in both pcs chrome task takes 50% of cpu resources. it means for my i7 laptop 2 cores will be always busy and for r7 8 cores will be always busy

If you read this whole thing than thanks for reading it and let me know if you also have this same problem and what you did to solve it (don't say you changed the browser)

I had this same problem and tried almost everything and, well, I'm sorry to disappoint you but the only thing that worked for me was changing browsers. I was on Chrome for the longest time, till about 1.5yrs when I switched to ff, and now to Brave about 3 months ago. Surprisingly, Brave doesn't have any of the cpu/ram issues as Chrome, despite using the same Chromium kernel

Firefox is the best for privacy. I use brave when I have to avoid google or use TOR or need it for work.
Edge is good but it will also be a privacy nightmare.
