    The sad thing is I tried GRC's | DNS Nameserver Performance Benchmark
    And OpenDNS is much slower than my native ISP DNS. That is why I keep it au natural

    I can vouch for GRC, and yes some dns might be slower, but there is slower and than it's noticeably slow.
    I usually use Google's DNS as it is quite fast and easy to remember:
    8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4
    and for ipv6
    2001:4860:4860::8888 and 2001:4860:4860::8844

    I feel a little bad about this, but after almost 5 years of using OpenDNS, I think I might switch to this on my upcoming Windows reinstalls. I never liked the redirects to search pages and stuff when you try to load a non-existent domain. A good server should tell you there's no such name in those cases. You can turn it off with an account, but that's for a single IP only (ownership of which can be readily verified, logically) before there were some drawbacks.

    Thanks for the ipv6 addresses I didn't know. But I think that in the choice of a DNS resolver, the speed is not the only criteria to take in consideration. In particular, Google has already too much info about us (Gmail, Google search engine, Chrome...), Moreover, Google is an US enterprise, and US law being what they are, I find no necessity to give in addition to Google the identity of each site we visit.

    i used it for nearly 6 months and it worked fairly........................just the point of problem is that a client can overcome the blocking but inserting its own DNS servers available free over the internet.

    I was a big fan of OpenDNS when this thread was created, but unless your provider's name servers block sites or routinely fail to the point of unusability, I cannot no longer recommend the usage of any third-party ones.
