Now for the second time around
my first thread was move to la la land never to be found SURE




Cloudflare, a well-known Internet performance and security company, announced the launch of 1.1.1.1—world's fastest and privacy-focused secure DNS service that not only speeds up your internet connection but also makes it harder for ISPs to track your web history. Domain Name System (DNS) resolver, or recursive DNS server, is an essential part of the internet that matches up human-readable web addresses with their actual location on the internet, called IP addresses.

That's bad a**

I do not believe in tracking over the web, for any reason. Snooping/Eavesdropping/Tracking - All synonymous for Warrant-less Search and Seizure / Warrant-less Wire tapping.

DNS response time and download speeds are totally unrelated. Fake "news".

Lower ping = faster connections to services and websites. I think the wording of it is a little bleh, but the point is still made. I've been using it without a hitch.

It's not download speed.

It's access to the site which is increased in speed. You are not magically downloading faster because of this.

I have enough trouble with cloudflare serviced websites as it is, when they decide a website is not acceptable.

I'll stick to my ISP, or google when my ISP denies access to certain streaming websites.

So they protect you vs other ISPs but what are you giving up to them in return? Are you giving them your search history to do with as they please?

What does their privacy ToS say? What happens when it suddenly changes at any point they feel like it?

They make no claim that this will increase download speed. This will increase time to first byte for any sites whose domain name needs to be translated to its numeric IP form when you hit enter. Thus the page begins to load faster.

I understand how DNS works and what it does. My point (perhaps badly stated) is that saving a few milliseconds on getting the reply to your lookup is really a drop in the ocean. I doubt it will be noticeable.

I've been using the same DNS server at the same provider here in the Netherlands for the last 20 years. I've never had a problem with DNS in all that time. As for privacy, I doubt they log my lookups but I don't visit too many sites any more. Online newspaper, youtube, email (at my ISP) and ATS. I download the odd thing via usenet, that's pretty much it.

Faster might be better but a lookup is miniscule when compared to the rest of the data stream involved in surfing the web. Perhaps there are terribly slow ISP servers out there somewhere so it may help some.

Domain Name System (DNS) resolver, or recursive DNS server, is an essential part of the internet that matches up human-readable web addresses with their actual location on the internet, called IP addresses.

For example, when you try to open a website, say www.fieldengineer.com..., your DNS looks up for the IP address linked to this domain name and load the site.
