Does OpenDNS impact surfing speed?
So I was asked if the use of OpenDNS makes a noticable slow down in surfing. Not that I've seen. And actually I think it speeds it up. Like I said I do have little weird page issues only because I choose to block doubleclick.net but that's my choice. (For example the final checkout page at Amazon has ads that are blocked by Opendns so as you 'exit' the store it will warn you that some content is not ssl protected. Since I'm exiting the store anyway, it makes no impact to the security of the transaction.
Impact on surfing? None that I can see.
Ability to instantly block bad sites across all networks? Including my Dad's? Priceless.
