Privacy respecting browser with download manager integration

I've stopped using almost all of Google's Products(Drive,Youtube,Search..etc) because of their censorship policies, the only thing remaining is the browser. Mozilla has also joined in this stupid "hate speech" thing(see here), so Firefox is ruled out as well. I've tried dissenter but it is just repainted chrome with a gab supported chatbox on every page. Moreover download manager addons cannot be added to it. Do you guys have any suggestions for a browser with a download manager integration?

Is chromium a no go in general?

Also the new Microsoft browser is chromium based so that'd rule that one out as well.
Though they were not sure yet what they'll do, regarding adblockers also.
Last thing I read anyway.

What search engines do you use now then?

I don't search much, i've bookmarked the sites that i need to visit, occasionally i use duckduckgo. There are lot of good chromium based browsers but knowing that it has been based on a Google base makes me uneasy, i could be wrong, i don't know.

Duckduckgo has its own app for Android and IOS.
Though I doubt you have an android phone...

Firefox. Are you just wanting to avoid them out of principle? I don't think there is any chance of them enabling hate speech filter shit in their browser...but who knows at the rate we are going...

I'll try them out thanks. Yes i want to avoid the big tech giants that go against free speech as a principle. I do what i can to make a dent in their shining Armour. And i also respect guys like Gab, Duckduckgo for taking a stand against censorship.

Built on Chromium as well but my go to is Epic Privacy Browser.  I find it lightweight and fast.  No issues as of yet.
