Google Public DNS ➝

Today Google announced their own public DNS resolver. I had been jumping back and forth between OpenDNS and my ISP’s default DNS, needless to say I haven’t been happy with either of them. Google has been on this kick of attempting to speed up web browsing for their users and this is the next piece to the puzzle.

Switching to Google’s DNS server is very easy, it only took me about 3 minutes, and from what I can tell it’s well worth it.

Their DNS server is focused on speed and security, if you’d like to take a look at their privacy policy it can be found here. It’s easy to read and reasonable.
