I've used it, I thought it was tolerable. I can't say I actually liked it since I prefer much more fine grained control than it gives, so I prefer a browser that either has a umatrix type blocker or can have umatrix installed as a plugin. The basic "adblocker" type is far too simplistic for my tastes and I ended up ditching it for Firefox + umatrix w/ Vivaldi + umatrix as my backup.

The nice thing about chromium is that with all the plugins that work with it, you can really customize it to be as advanced (or simple) as you like, and it allows a moderate amount of UI customization. While I use Vivaldi (another chromium offshoot), that's not because I dislike chromium, it's because I use chromium for work when I need to get work done (I don't like to carry my work laptop so just use chromium on my personal).

I use brave from time to time. It is my main go-to browser on my phone, but not on my laptops. It looks like an interesting project, but still a bit buggy sometimes. I think you have to give the project some time to mature, it's still a rather new browser.

I like it and use it for most tasks. I find it faster then the alternatives on my computers and phones and have had no issues with it so far. I think its great out of the box browser. I keep tor around for any sensitive tasks, but thinking of just booting into Tails for that type of anonymity.
