I use Edge as my secondary bowser and it's fast and has Smartscreen. Plus, I use it with uBlock Origin in Advanced User Medium Mode (I couldn't find my own link, duh!). It does take a little time investment to learn and use though. Medium Mode blocks all 3rd party frames & scripts and works on most sites. You tweak broken sites as needed for those you frequent. It's amazingly powerful! I never see ads anywhere unless I choose to. The key thing is to avoid flooding the rules list. I'm no geek and use it quite effectively. You could add McAfee SiteAdvisor as well but it limits the search engines you could use. And I prefer DuckDuckgo now regardless of browser so it doesn't work for me.

I rely primarily on Firefox Quantum. It's quite fast on my older laptop and it has the new Containers add-on with options to customize as you wish. I'm not sure if this add-on is more privacy- or security-oriented. Maybe someone else knows? I use it with Privacy Badger, uBlock Origin, HTTPS Everywhere & Decentraleyes. I fired up Google recently for some reason and it's slow and heavy in comparison (YMMV)!

Anyone of you has some idea to reduce exaggerated consumption of ram on Https Everywhere for chromium?, or has known some similar extension without that problem?. I need your help because that extension swallow 120mb to 180mb of ram on this PC. Instead of protecting I think that exist an dangerous memory leak bug accumulated in the background that could be exploitable by external code..

you may use cleanmem free
it can decrease memory usage of all windows processes including chrome and somehow prevents memory leak, not totally
it can reduce memory usage of https everywhere, too, every 30 minutes or you can lower the interval to 15mins if you want

another option: Smart HTTPS

(y) glad you like it
but please note that this extension might slowdown your browsing speed on websites which totally don't support https

because this extension will try to load https of that website for exactly 3 seconds (3000 milliseconds, can be changed in the settings to 1000 or 500ms if you want) -> if it can't be loaded -> it will revert back to http -> so lose 3 seconds of waiting time

https everything by default uses its "signatures" to load websites (reason for it's obesity) so it should be faster
there is also an option in https everything to make it work like smart https (signature-less -> light-weight)

Personally i use FF Quantum and Slimjet.
I use FF most of the time when i am visiting sites but if i want to watch videos i prefer Slimjet.
FF is fast but Chromium browsers still have the edge when viewing videos online.
