Its from some of the old FireFox dev's and is a good browser.

Try Brave, looks to be better than Focus for iOS with the inclusion of HTTPS Everywhere.

Unfortunately I have to wait for some bug fixes I think .

Try to use DuckDuckGo and enable block scripts : duck shows no results

Anyway the inbuilt adblocker seems to work very well , even without adguard DNS .
Better than FF focus ( on my phone at least )

If anyone else had my same problem I found a solution : go to DDG.com first and from there search what you need ( in this way it works , it does not work from the Url bar )



Anyway
As far as ads and trackers are concerned , I think that brave adblock miss something ( like sometimes social media share buttons , I don't know if they can track you ) but catches something else compared to adguard pro

If someone is curious , here the list of brave filters : ad-block/lib at master · brave/ad-block · GitHub
