Trying out Edge in Win7 and turned off all tracking, looking good so far..

default fonts in older Chrome version still looks the best.

Edge is since some day in 2020 using the open source chromium project (like Chrome, Brave, Opera, I think Firefox). Whether they added malwareish components, who's to know. All browsers spy on you, except maybe for Brave with Tor. However, Edge has about 2x render speed when it comes to webGL2, compared to Firefox and Brave. That's how they got me :)

Under Settings, Privacy and Services, have you turned off "Improve Microsoft products by sending data about how you use the browser"?

I think that's all there is perhaps some more privacy switches, ad blockers or preference..
