I was just wondering because my custom ad blocker that I've been working on now for two years is currently supporting over 4 million domains to block, and I want to get some idea of what the competition is like.
It's not competition and it is not an ad blocker. I'm mostly running the MVPS' host file, with a very few domains merged into it.

Hosts files do support wildcards; so it ain't 430 Mb in size, naming every domain. You could do similar but more advanced with a nice regex Smile | :)

It is a way of blocking like the router does; it does not actually detect or know if something is pushing ads. So, yes, your solution may be better - I just have an app that downloads the MVPS' file and adds a few lines from me to it. I'd prefer something that can actually update the router, so any device using it would be more secure.

In another location I'm using a Pi. Good firewall, if not too many users.
