The normal way is you run a proxy server, and have it manage a blacklist rules, blocking access to certain sites. Your users get configured to use the proxy for outbound TCP port 80 (and port 443 for SSL) access.
Running a proxy to handle blocking of some sites is what it's for. A whole lot easier that way then using firewall rules.
