PFSense: PFBlockerNG

I've been working with PFBlockerNG for URL filtering quite a bit lately, and I have to say it works pretty good.  What it does is that it blocks URLs (web filtering) based on DNS instead of a URL category. Yes, Squid does do URL categorization, but if you don't want to have to do anything on the client side for HTTPS inspection, then DNS filtering (so to speak) is a decent choice.  I'm not saying its perfect, but I do like it enough to use it.
I wont put up a "how to", as there are plenty of those out there for doing what you need to do.  Just know that I find it a good alternative to URL filtering.
