  • Brave browser | 2021-02-18
    Brave is a good out of the box option and maybe the more conveniant way to have this level of security and privacy out of the box (on Desktop). But look at thoses listed on Tor is the best for anonymity but it's slow and not ment for personnal accounts. ungoogled chromium can be tweaked to have a better level of privacy and security than brave and a similar user experience. Firefox is the best if you tweak it like explain on their website.
