Have you tried CPL (Custom Pixel Launcher)? It's been absolutely awesome for me. It's less customizable than Nova, but it's a very nice Pixel-like experience.
I haven't. I've been using Nova Prime since Android 6 Marshmallow, and it's one of those that keeps on working.

Deleted: Firefox Focus
Installed: Brave browser

Any reason why you replaced Brave with Focus?
Think of it as using 2 Windows Laptops side-by-side, both do the same but may have different software.

Keeping Brave meant I had a full browser next to another, Chrome. Whereas Firefox Focus offers better privacy with automatic deletion post-session, plus fingerprint lock between switching apps.

Now think of it as a single Windows Laptop next to a iPad.

Fair, my reason for using Focus is pretty similar too. On iOS it can integrate into Safari to block content and Focus is my main "private" browser, good choice.
