Google launches Google Public DNS

GoogleDNSGoogle’s got your email, calendar, contacts, pictures, phone calls, text messages… heck, why not hand over your DNS lookups too.

Google explains that, “the average Internet user ends up performing hundreds of DNS lookups each day, and some complex pages require multiple DNS lookups before they start loading” and boasts that their DNS service will, “make users’ web-surfing experiences faster, safer and more reliable.” Sounds good, although we do wonder what Google plans on logging in the background.

In Google we trust?
