Neither. I'd use NextDNS coz it has bunch of block lists that you can use. But it's not playing well with my ASUS router so I'm not using it.

Hmm, I think read somewhere that if you want to have AiProtection enabled on the ASUS, you will not be able to change DNS?

Are the malware lists any good compared to Quad9 or OpenDNS? They seem to be using community ones.
Not sure for malware, but tracker block lists are good.

No, you can have AiProtection and still use your own DNS, but Merlin's ASUS builds don't play well with NextDNS for some reason. With Cloudflare, it works perfectly.
