Have you tried Google’s Open-Public DNS?

Have you tried Google’s DNS?

Some morning Google announced that they’re now running a free DNS server for everyone to use.

So, these are the IP addresses of Google’s DNS server: 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 .

Interesting and unexpected.

Why? Obviously they get a lot of data — all the sites we’re visiting.

Have you tried it? If not, why not?
If so, how is it? They say it's faster -- is it?
They say they won't screw with it. Do you believe them?

FYI: I’m using it here on my LAN. Just changed the configuration of my router, so all my machines will start using their DNS.
