We know that Google tracks us unrelentingly, and therefore the onslaught of personalised ads gets extremely annoying at some purpose. although we have a tendency to keep it aside, there are serious issues like high RAM usage that creates your device sluggish. therefore no matter could also be your reason to say bye Chrome and ask for alternative choices, here could be a list of best Google Chrome alternatives for you.

1. Opera browser

Opera browser has been around for a very long time now and stands as one of the best Chrome alternatives to surf the web. It introduced cool features like speed dial and tabbed browsing to us. This Chromium-based browser feels similar to Chrome in terms of usage, and it packs some great features like the built-in ad-blocker that lets you surf the internet minus the ads.

Another useful feature is the Opera Turbo Mode that compresses data to open web pages more quickly. But my personal favorite is the built-in unlimited free VPN tool that comes in really handy while unlocking geo-restricted content and protecting your privacy. Besides these, there is a bunch of other useful features like battery saver mode, and you should try Opera yourself to find how good this Chrome alternative is.

Available for: Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, iOS

Why use Opera?

  • Bunch of useful built-in features like VPN tool, Ad-Blocker, Turbo Mode, Battery Saver, etc
  • Good UI that comes in a dark theme as well

2. Firefox Browser

Mozilla’s Firefox is the best alternative to Chrome in terms of speed and privacy. It allows far more control over privacy and lets you control the data you share on the web. There is a dedicated “Tracking Protection” feature that prevents websites from tracking you. Mozilla released the “Firefox Monitor” feature, which alerts you immediately in case your email ID or password is involved in a data breach.

The best part is that Firefox comes with several Chrome-like features. So if you switch browsers, you won’t be missing Google anytime soon. Firefox can handle a large number of open tabs without getting lousy because it doesn’t hog your RAM like Chrome. It also offers a large collection of add-ons and extensions that you could use.

Available for: Windows, macOS, Linux, Android, iOS

Why use Firefox?

  • Fast, secure, and easily customizable
  • Features like Tracking Protection, Firefox Monitor, etc.
  • Pleasing UI


3. Tor Browser

Tor is quite a popular choice among those who regularly use privacy-focused browsers. In fact, Tor has become a synonym for the anti-surveillance movement as it is built on a network of ‘hidden’ relay servers. This browser can obscure your public IP address by bouncing your connection through a number of distributed nodes.

This means it not only protects your browsing history but also hides your physical location to let you access region-specific content on the internet. For those who seek access to Deep Web or Dark Web, can also do achieve it through Tor. However, it should be done at one’s own risk.

Talking about downsides, the Tor browser works slower than Google or Firefox. But if privacy is all that you care about, there is no better browser than this one.

Available for: Windows, macOS, Linux, Android

Why use Tor?

  • Best privacy-focused browser
  • Guarantees anonymity

4. Brave Browser

Brave browser is another open-source web browser by the co-founders of the Mozilla project. It blocks ads and trackers that slow you down and invade your privacy. But here is the best part — the browser has a feature called Brave Rewards.

It allows you to earn blockchain tokens and reward the sites that you visit frequently. You regularly get tokens from the browser that you can donate to the publisher to compensate for the ads that get blocked while browsing.

Available for: Windows, Mac, Linux

Why use Brave?

  • Loads pages faster
  • Blocks ads and user tracking
  • Password management
  • Gives you money

5. Yandex Browser

Yandex has gained popularity owing to its security features, such as DNSCrypt technology, which encrypts DNS traffic between computers and servers. It can automatically encrypt the communication whenever you connect to an open WiFi network.

This browser also checks webpage security with the Yandex security system and downloaded files with Kaspersky anti-virus. To load the web pages faster, it uses Opera’s Turbo technology on slow connections. Besides this, the Yandex browser lets you install extensions from Chrome Web Store and use Opera Add-ons too.

Available for: Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, and Android

Why use Yandex?

  • Personalized articles, news, and videos on the homepage
  • Turbo mode for faster loading
  • DNS Spoofing protection
  • Customizable UI
