I was wondering how hard would it be to banish some browser from accessing my site portfolio

i have noticed some browsers have integrated ad blocking, which hurts ad supported sites

I don't think you can effectively ban a particular browser from accessing your website, because it's just an interface by which you surf the web or do whatever you want on the internet. The things which are in your control are the things which are actually on the web not the interfaces to the web.
You can't tell the host to stop "google chrome" from making a particular query, because in general it doesn't know what do you mean by "google chrome" in that particular sense.

Just a beginner myself so, pardon me if I got it wrong.
Cheers.
