@pimoore I used to run my own pi-hole instance on a RaspberryPi but NextDNS beats it hands-down because it's so much less maintenance.
I believe the only thing NextDNS can’t do is remove the white space when ads are blocked?
True, some ad scripts will make room for the ad spots even though they can't be filled. I use Brave Browser and uBlock Origin to get rid of the blank spots. Basically, I just do cosmetic filtering in the browser. But I consider stopping even that.
The ads are annoying but for me the all-encompassing tracking is the silent killer. Do not want!
