Why not try a different browser for awhile and see if you like it. If not, simply delete it and try another. Try Opera - pretty nice, and you can configure it to be how you want it. Firefox is another nice one, with like a zillion users. And if you're concerned about privacy and not seeing a load of adverts constantly, try Brave browser on for size.

I currently have all the above installed, plus a few others. Have fun!!

I have been using https://www.slimjet.com/ for several years. It is a "clone" of the Google Chrome browser, but has several great features added to it. Well worth taking a look at.
