    I found some stuff about changing to Google DNS Server. Everybody seems to agree, that it will speed up the computer.

    Example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1PKlQyAezrs&feature=youtu.be

    1st question:
    But.... what exactly does this mean for my computer, in the year 2014 of our Lord NSA, when it is "hooked up" to Google like this?:eek:

    2nd question:
    If the disadvantages with Google are big, are there other servers that will do the same thing about speed, but do not have the consequences Google will?:confused:

    I approve google DNS servers response queries a little bit faster... but it has nothing to do with your bandwidth! I prefer OpenDNS, and it benefits more security related technologies I guess... but with a slower response.... the answer to why is: "guess who is the big guy devouring the web??" and they are 1 of the companies limited to number of our 1or2 hand(s) fingers who own 10million$ Quantum processors which means they can not even show you what your queried domain name's IP is, but even what IP your Alternate character in parallel universe is browsing :cool: it may appear like this in digital encrypted style 2001:49f0:1024::101 :p
    but joke aside, really... what makes a difference? 1/100 sec in comparison with 1 sec?? we're living with "CLOCK" not "CHRONOMETER" :)
    BTW we're discussing the BROWSING which reminds the fact we visit our favorite sites 80% of times at least and there's a bunch of cache for all your DNS records...even Firefox caches name spaces!! o_O
    so if your friend just PMed you "Hey, did you see this guy?? he's a total asshole!" and sent you a link of s**t hole video streaming site you had no idea it even existed(!) you just have to wait 1 more second for FQDN to be resolved!
    and forget about NSA guys, they can read what you browse anyway (unfortunately they've got Quantum processors too! o_O)... but if you ever wanted to die trying, you can use Jap/Jondo or Tor with JondoFox profile.

    Use the open-source program "namebench" it can find the fastest DNS server in your area. Versions for most OS's.

    I wouldn't worry too much about Google owning the DNS, as people who think it helps the NSA vastly underestimate them (like they need to set your DNS to track you).

    Meanwhile Google has tracking code on most websites that give them more than just DNS could ever give, and all the browsers have used Google SafeBrowsing API which sends every website you visit to them anyway.

    That being said, I use OpenDNS at home instead.
