I don’t use an anti-virus per-se, but I do still use Malwarebytes. I used to use Kaspersky but it was taking too much resources and causing noticeable stutters in firefox.
A dedicated anti-virus is also good for for the less tech savvy crowd. They may be downloading a bunch of suspicious shit, no adblocker and overall just be ignorant to how to stay safe. In those cases I can easily teach them to scan their computer regularly and everything they download. Is it better than defender? No idea. It does bring them peace of mind though.
