Hi this is my last computer security configuration for this years.
Do you think my pc is safe enought or is there a lack of anything?
Any suggestion to complete or make it stronger?
Consider switching to another DNS provider like Quad9, NextDNS or Cloudflare for malicious site blocking. Also, most browsers have the option to force HTTPS by itself now. No need for HTTPS Everywhere anymore.

As concern DNS I tested a lot of them on dnsbenchmark, ,googledns seems to be the fastest, this is the only reasons I choiced google.

If google DNS works best for you, then stick with it. But if you don't seem to find any downsides with the other DNS servers compared to google, then it's worth switching. There are better alternatives privacy- and security-wise. :)
