I'd recommend Firefox for daily usage. It offers great privacy features, including enhanced tracking protection. For work, it supports many productivity extensions. It's also compatible with most streaming platforms. For added security during online transactions, consider using a VPN service.

I second Firefox. I've used it as my main browser for many years without issue. You can make tweaks and add extensions for better privacy. Plus, you will get security patches before any Firefox derivative browser like waterfox and midori for example.

Picking a browser for its privacy is redundant, if you're gonna be using Facebook, Google, etc. Just choose the browser with the best features. I use Opera GX.
im not having any social account for my self only some gaming one plus office site

Probably because you have enabled "Query OCSP responder servers to confirm the current validity of certificates"?
Strong tracking protection does just that. My MS login sometimes fails, since tracking cookies are removed in the process.

You can not have both, privacy focused browsers usually lack in security, there are several weeks even moths behind in updates.
Strong security on the other hand means allowing tracking what webpages you visit, so it can check and block them accordingly.
To lower the amount of tracking and improve security, use one browser for shopping, another for a social network, another for work.

I have not tried any of them till now, but I am not impressed.

By default, both Midory and Waterfox try to connect to Google using QUIC (UDP via 443) and Midori even wants to update via TCP port 80, that is 3 nonono for me right there.
Librewolf does not do any stunt like that, because that tracking code was removed from it. Then again it tries to connect to my ISP, but so do other apps, so not sure about this.

If want a basic anti-tracking, not VPN, just use DOH (encrypted DNS) in any browser of your choice, preferably supporting ECH or eSNI. Block system tracking via DNS (Adguard or NextDNS).
Then you can flavor it with a content blocker like Adguard or uBlock Origin to get cosmetic filtering. Cookie AutoDelete is a nice addition, it removes fileless cookies and caches on the go.
