Curious — why not Firefox and Startpage for work stuff or Firefox and DDG for work stuff? You can always resort to bang commands if DDG results aren’t great for particular searches. You can use the Multi-Account Containers extension (and related container extensions) to have Firefox work for multiple “profiles” of usage.

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.

I'm ashamed to say that I prefer Chrome's dev tools. Also, Google is better for searching obscure error messages.

In that case you can probably at least use Chrome and Startpage at work. Startpage.com pays Google for the right to use their search results, so you'll still find your pages about obscure error messages, and Startpage doesn't track you.
