I would stay away from Google Chrome. Takes up lots of room, many adware vulnerabilities and Google tracking is alive and well.

Brave Browser is getting a lot of attention recently and I've started using it as a second browser <>.

I don't know of any browser that meets all your requirements without add-on / extension.
