I came across the Osiris Browser this looks like a pretty interesting browser, uses decentralization, blocks ads, says is an anonymous browser, uses something called "hyper-speed browsing" that is up to 7X faster than normal browsing and supports something called the dAppstore for blockchain games where it appears that you play to earn crypto currency.

Sounds almost to good to be true, going to be testing this out over the weekend.

In general, I would say everyone should be careful using such browsers with very low user base, sometimes it's more at risk for privacy compared to big players like Chrome, Edge, Firefox, Opera. We never know what happens with users data while browsing, how those people as developers makes enough money to maintain this kind of browsers...
Not to mention possible real issues in terms of security vulnerabilities, most cases are outdated chromium versions.

I use Brave, however I am curious by nature and like testing out other browsers, this one looks interesting particularly due to decentralization which I believe is the future.

I have been testing out this browser, it is a Chromium based 64bit browser, it is pretty fast, has lot of security and privacy settings, uses a built in Adblock plus where you can select extra filters or add your own. I am not sure what the WebRTC setting do but on browserleaks.com it leaks the IP which is the case for most Chromium browsers, it is also 100% unique.

It has its own crypto wallet, you just need to give it a password and save a special 12 word code to set it up. The Integrated dAppstore is what I like the most so far, it has a market scroll and crypto news to keep you up to date. I have not played any yet but has a lot of games you can play to earn crypto, the one called Coba that is under development looks intriguing. From what I read these games are set up where you own the pixels so to speak, and you can buy, sell and trade in game items with other players instead of from the game maker like most games today.
