Brave, mostly because of YouTube (ads and a background play), otherwise I would use Chrome, and TOR as a backup. Bromite is out of question, I would have to allow unknown apps.
I just download the apk file install it and then again turn off install from unknown sources ;).
Using Ungoogled Chromium and Firefox both of which support extensions. And they are getting better and better.

Stoutner Privacy Browser is another good privacy browser
You should try Fennec as it supports about:config which is disabled in Firefox but allowed in Firefox Beta.

Fennec was the earlier FF version. The current FF is Fenix

Fennec F-Droid is based on the latest Firefox release (codenamed Fenix).
It has proprietary bits and telemetry removed, but still connects to
various Mozilla and Google services that can track users.

FF (Fenix) will allow access to about:config and with more extensions support later on

We have been listening this since release of Firefox Preview :unsure:. But almost all firefox users agree that Fennec version was better than Fenix one. Hope they will change this soon. But I don't like new interface though.

I know but it is still named as Fennec so I am not wrong. BTW supported extension in Ungoogled Chromium are more useful than Firefox ones for me.

Ad blocking in Bromite 92 is broken as of now, but a partial workaround is to enable DoH and use an ad-blocking DNS such as https://adblock.mydns.network/dns-query It still leaves empty placeholders but at least it stops the slow-loading, heavy ad content from crashing the browser.

Okay, I tried a lot of them so here's my opinion;

Chrome — my default browser because it has everything I need and basically works the best
Firefox — would be my default browser on Android if it let me disable telemetry completely; even after switching settings off, it still connects to Mozilla's telemetry servers every few seconds
Opera — used to be my favorite browser until it was bought by the chinese company; now is literally full of ads and trackers; and I hate chinese software
Brave — annoying with notifications; lower quality of images on some websites than on Chrome and other browsers
Samsung Internet Browser — good, but I hate the UI
Microsoft Edge – I avoid any version of Edge because of privacy reasons

Unlike you, I love the UI of samsung internet browser. I've tried all of the browsers you mentioned but everytime I try a new one, I end up using samsung browser again. Not to mention the integration of samsung pass also. I use it to sign in any website with ease. That's why it's my favorite browser. Anyway, that's just my opinion.
