Thanks will add these to my own PiHole.

NextDNS is also a PiHole instance ;)
Not an instance rather inspired from PiHole. It's easier to use than PiHole for me since it doesn't require any device. All the work is happening on their server. I have set it on my router and my family members are protected from most of the ads, trackers, porn sites, malicious, phishing sites.

Sure but you don't get the full control over - like the even write down.
And biggest disadvantage: you still use a external DNS provider while I can combine my lists with Unbound.

But I guess that's too far OT :)

Do you mean that the user can download the malware via a web browser or the malware outside the web browser can download something by using web browser?
because of how WDBP works, it still lets some blocked links slip through and download. In other words, the files are still downloaded before the block screen shows
Emsisoft extension has a similar working method but a bit smarter. It either blocks the link in the first place or lets them download and deletes the download entry later => but this may crash the browser

Today test. Sorry, most links w/ere dead. These are only live links I could find on vxvault and urlhaus
DNS was changed by DNS jumper + DNS cache was flushed + Browser was restarted on every time

cloudflare (1.1.1.2/1.0.0.2) 1+1 = 2/9
quad9 1+2 = 3/9
adguard 2+1 = 3/9
neustar 2+3 = 5/9
cleanbrowsing 2+0 = 2/9
openDNS 1+0 = 1/9

avira 3+4 = 7/9
Bitdefender 3+6 = 9/9
emsisoft 0+0 = 0/9 !!!
malwarebytes 3+6 = 9/9
norton 3+2 = 5/9
WDBP 3+6 = 9/9
google 3+3 + 1 warn = 7/9

optional:
Netcraft 0+0 (not for malware blocking)
Kaspersky Security Cloud Free 3+6 = 9/9

Microsoft Edge lets you download 3+3 files, warns about them, 3 fully blocked, so 3/9 or 9/9?

This just makes me want to go back to using the fastest DNS, since DNS based blocking doesn’t seem to work very consistently. And Malwarebytes is still getting consistently great results.

I would say that if you're using WD then a dns with good protection can have some value to it but if using a good security solutions like Kaspersky, Bitdefender, Eset who are known to have very good web protection then using the fastest dns would be the wiser decision.

I have a router with ESET filtering at the DNS level already, it's a desktop so it's not going to be outside of that. I'm not sure if I'd gain much.

I don't understand what is on your screenshot but according to my past experience, it should be counted as blocks
If I recall correctly, Edge warns or blocks, same as chrome
