chrome , signed in across devices, because I like having synced tabs etc and i try to keep historically monitored data to one company only ie they have my email and phone so im not letting another company have the details of my life too.

@eidairaman1 I could'nt do that , so much is on phones these days mine now Has to be latest Os and security update, it's probably only marginally safer but its got to be a bit, on a nokia 7 ,android one and i was hooked on samsung ui before , not now though the lack of stuff in the way makes using the phone much more spritely such that my old phone , now has the ggole launcher active too.

I do not browse a lot on my phone (I use native apps for most things, such as the lovely TPU App!). When I do it is a mix of chrome and firefox. One caveat is that I use openVPN to go back to my pi-hole at home so there is some built in ad blocking without having to use an actual ad blocker. This does strain the battery slightly and some do get through though and this is mainly a function of me not customizing my pi-hole much. Getting a new phone from work that will hopefully alleviate the battery issue since my current Pixel has been heavily used for 1.5 years.

Opera mobile, not the mini version, is the best I've used so far and has a built in adblocker that actually works and doesn't trigger anti-adblock scripts on sites. Only downside is that you can set a default user agent and have to toggle it on a per tab basis.

Testing Brave, it's Chromium but with the Mozilla philosophy. Using a beta to have bookmark sync, it's great so far, both in mobile and desktop.

Edge on Android is basically Chrome, and you can keep the bookmarks.

Yandex.

Not only do I support my fellow Comrades, but also, I like various features like: Turbo page and Turbo video, and Yandex Translate, which works much better than google translate.

Plus I use Yandex features like Yandex Drive and others.

Sorry didn't mean to repost that.. booboo. But seriously use ublock mobile. And Blockada. Android is so full of ads. Also install and use f-droid. You won't regret it.
