Opera is owned by a shady Chinese consortium since 2016: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opera_(web_browser)#History

Former developers are now working on Vivaldi browser, so that's the spiritual successor of the original Opera.

But both of them are just reskinned Chrome browsers, they use the same browser engine, so in the end google wins again...

There is only one multi-platform browser not based on Chrome as of 2021: Firefox.

Speaking of passwords, what are you're thoughts on password managers? I've been sitting on the fence about this for some time. Bitwarden seems feasible as it's open sourced and has a free version.

I have never used a password manager. Me, I cannot trust someone who stores my passwords off-site or locally encrypted. Off-site storage means they can be stolen; encrypted means it is possible to lose the unecryption code.
