No shortage of good, privacy oriented Chromium browsers.

I was using the laptop yesterday when it started to crawl. The major culprit seemed to be Firefox which was hogging memory and sometimes CPU. I tab open, 34 processes!
Had many tabs of Vivaldi open, but its speed never seems to be impacted by opening extra tabs.
Went back to normal speed when I closed FF.

That is strange. Most everyone I know has the opposite experience.  Chrome based browsers tend to hog more resources and they get bogged down on java heavy sites after a period of time.  I typically use my chrome browsers for specific purposes and as the number of tabs grow, it will slow and then become unresponsive or the tabs will begin crashing.  I started firefox today with close to 10 windows and 47 tabs.  That number will grow more than I care to admit as the day progresses.

However this thread is about the privacy concerns with chrome.  I wish there was something that could be done to address the privacy concerns.  Some of my banks require chrome to display online statements which is really unfortunate. Years ago google had a motto not to be evil.  They have removed that motto and I cannot help but think it is because they gave up trying.
