Google’s DNS Resolution Service
Google Public DNS
“is a free, global Domain Name System (DNS) resolution service, that you can use as an alternative to your current DNS provider,” Google announced, and says that in order to give it a try you need to configure your settings to use the IPs “126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52 as your DNS servers”. Supposed improvements are speedier browsing and better security.
Zim in the forum comments, “And now the big brother knows not only what you search for, but where you are surfing too. I’m not absolutely comfortable with this. Tough it IS a good alternative to OpenDNS... And the IPs are very easy to remember.” James Xuan argues, “I’m using it now, I don’t see any reason to be uncomfortable with it. I trust Google over my ISP.”
