What mobile web browser are you freedom-loving people using?

I recently had to rebuild my mobile setup on a new S5, as my old one unceremoniously died. (Thanks, N900, old friend, for keeping me company for a couple days.) I'd been using an old version of Firefox Mobile from F-Droid that wasn't being updated on Cyanogenmod 12.1 before... now I'm updated to LineageOS 15.1, but I'm not sure what the best option is for a web browser these days.

I've got the LineageOS AOSP Browser, and I've got FOSS Browser and IceCatMobile from F-Droid. What's the "mainstream" libre option these days?

@Blaise Alleyne I'm using Firefox Klar from F-Droid, which seems to work well. Only issue is that it's designed for private browsing, which means it... forgets everything. Good with home screen bookmarks though.

I use Fennec F-Droid, and sometimes Tor Browser.
I use Fennec because I see it's updated regularly and I could install uBlock origin to get rid of all the ads. I didn't explore much other browsers, though.

This is in my phone with Lineage 14.1.
