1 - I use Chrome + Google for work stuff
2 - I use Firefox + DuckDuckGo for personal stuff
I sync my passwords with Bitwarden.
I have started doing this as well, except I'm using KeePassXC and using Dropbox to distribute the file everywhere. Would Bitwarden work behind a company firewall at a company that doesn't allow Dropbox?
Bitwarden is pretty nice, using it at work. I do still like my control that KeePass gives, though.
Over the last few years DuckDuckGo have become so good at handling my queries that I only occasionally use Google. That typically happens when DuckDuckGo doesn't find what I expect, but it always turns out that neither does Google.
Also, I currently use 1Password, but have been thinking about using Enpass because you can sync with any cloud drive. I like the idea of syncing to a third party cloud drive in case my password service is compromised.
I used Brave for awhile then switched to Firefox+uBlock Origin, hoping to do my teensy part in decreasing the market share of Chromium-based browsers while still being privacy-focused.
Often vulnerabilities go unpatched for days, which is pretty bad when the exact vulnerability exploit code is already visible in the chromium bug tracker!
Or you could even use Chrome and DDG or Chrome and Startpage for work.
Anything where Chrome and/or Google are avoided is a good thing, IMO.
Also slowly migrating to Bitwarden.
