    I'm in a similar boat. I've ditched Chrome for Firefox (even if it means a significant performance hit on macOS). I've also been using DuckDuckGo on desktop and mobile without noticing much difference (I'm on android for mobile which is its own issue, and I've been contemplating switching to LineageOS... or buy an iPhone)

    It can be a lot of work, though! I'm still not sure what to do about my Gmail, Gmaps on Android (open source alternatives are... sub-optimal), Google Docs+Drive... I'm pretty entrenched.

    Google has sort of become the "default internet" for a lot of people, and off-boarding from it can be quite a project.
