Browser(s) and Add-ons
Browser: Microsoft Edge (Preset: Maximum Security and Privacy)
Addons: Kaspersky Protection, Norton Safe Web, Kaspersky Password Manager, HTTPS Everywhere, AdGuard
With Edge you get SmartScreen and Google SafeBrowsing with AdGuard.
I don't think you need Norton nor Kaspersky extension.
Your AV also protects you too.
Https everywhere isn't needed too as you can block http native in Edge.

Less extensions = less attack surface and better privacy.
Stay secure, not paranoid (copyright by a wise man) :D(y)

  • Browser Addons: Kaspersky Protection
Kaspersky Protection enables several features of Kaspersky applications in browsers The features are still available without the extension, but in this case the application performance will be affected.

Features that require the Kaspersky Protection extension:
  • Secure data input on websites. The extension connects the app and the browser for transferring data entered from the on-screen and regular keyboards. The Secure Data Input feature only works if the Kaspersky Protection extension is enabled.
  • Tracking redirects for phishing detection. Kaspersky Protection provides additional options for detecting phishing sites.
  • Anti-Banner.
  • Blocking of pop-up ads with Anti-Banner.
