You can take a look at brave browser or ad block browser. For blocking ads and trackers best would be firefox with ublock

Search experience is not upto the mark.
Their crawlers are too basic

Yeah, firefox is not light. Via browser is very light, you can try that. ublock filters can be added for blocking ads.

Yes chromium based. So seamless browsing as same as Chrome with adblocker. New firefox also looks quite good and faster comparing to old versions.

Kiwi is by far the best performing browser in the 2GB variant of Redmi 3s. ARM32 version uses less memory. And while I don’t see the same discrepancy in Poco F1, in R3s there seems to be a big difference in battery life when using Kiwi and Chrome. In the latter battery tends to drop every 3-4 minutes but in the the former its 6-7 minutes on average. With uBlock Origin and few other essential extensions.
In F1 I do have Chrome, Samsung Browser, FF, Soul Browser etc installed for the few sites where Kiwi doesn’t work well.
Very battery friendly amongst full-fledged browsers and with extensions support one can customize the web to his/her liking. Also the UI is great for bottom handed navigation. Prior to Kiwi, Samsung Browser was my favorite. It’s still very good but not well suited to low RAM devices.
Edit: Use the GitHub version instead of Play Store if you aren’t already.

Samsung Internet for stutterfree smooth scroll. Also having support for different ad blockers.
Personally using from last 5 years. It is similar to Safari in iOS

Yup samsung browser is the best. Nails everything adblock, UI , extra features.
Whenever I have to use chrome for some website I couldn’t help but wonder why people use it.

Yup man. Might be little out of place for the first time users but once you get the hang of it, you never go back.

Perfectly summed it up.
Apart from it, some samsung apps like Link sharing( for sharing files via samsung cloud), My files (File explorer), contacts, samung pass, split and pop up screen for apps etc, are really good. Once used, could not go back to other brand even pixels for ease of use.
I would rate one UI among the best in terms of ease of use, look and feel (polished)

Its a little ahead of the PS version. Think of it akin to Chrome Dev/Canary. Once the bugs have been squashed it’s made available on the PS. Personally other than a few sites not working from time to time I haven’t noticed anything major.
