Via a Hacker News article https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=18075159 I came across a link to this git repo https://github.com/StevenBlack/hosts .

It's a curated list of known advertising and malware hostnames that can be added to your system hosts file to protect your system from shady sites accessed by your browser as part of included javascript/tracking pixels etc. As long as your browser still uses your system resolver instead of being set to DNS over HTTPS it should provide a good degree of security for your browsing.
