One word - Pi-hole.

Get yourself a raspberry pi, install pi hole, and significantly reduce the ad payload on every device (regardless of OS used) in your house.

I actually run two pi-hole devices - a primary and a secondary. Because Time-Warner (Spectrum) doesn't allow you to change the DNS server IP's on a cable modem/router, I had to configure each device to use the local Pi-Hole DNS servers, but that's a small price to pay for a relatively ad-free browsing experience.

If you're concerned about allowing some sites to push ads (white-listing), have no fear - Pi-Hole supports that.
