Used startpage.com which is similar idea of being privacy based, it is google search engine with all the tracking stuff stripped out.

That, firefox plus a few addons works pretty well for me.

No - I am using DuckDuckGo as my Chrome browser extension and run Adblock and Ghostery. The interface on the new browser looks better I think and adds the most visited sites in the home screen like Chrome has. 

That said I also have a few Alexas scattered around the house so they know what I am up to.

I'm massively in the Google Home ecosystem because it's just really convenient to manage smart devices. I'm not really one who thinks that the speakers are listening in on people but there's no doubt that your data gets used to push products and opinions onto you.

 

For me the biggest issue is Facebook which I haven't had now for ages.
