Opera browser is based on the same browser engine that Google's browser. It works fast and has nice GUI. It won't report to Google that where you visit, has integrated ad block and it will have also nice integrated proxy (that they call VPN) for enhanced privacy protection. So use Opera, or good old Firefox, with some extensions, like Adblock, to keep some waste out.
