OpenDNS can make web browsing faster, more reliable, and even safer
People use OpenDNS for faster DNS resolution, as some ISP’s have trouble reaching some sites (even major ones like CNN and Yahoo!) for some part of a business day. I have had situations where Comcast could not reach my AOL mail but Verizon wireless could.
David Pogue has a story in the Business Day section of the New York Times today (Aug. 19), “Simplifying the Lives of Web Users”, link (website url) here.
Lee Hemmer has a review “OpenDNS Review: Surf Safer and Faster with OpenDNS” on Bright Hub, May 5, 2010, here.
Today I discussed the ability of parents to whitelist or blacklist sites with OpenDNS on my COPA blog. Actually, the OpenDNS site mentions this and displays a “Family Shield” trademark.
