Privacy tools IO tends to have a wealth of information for questions like this.
I was curious if anyone has any recommendations for free public DNS servers that they've used. I've been using OpenNic for a while, but in the last two days I'm experiencing a lot of trouble with domains not resolving. I'm using Google's (126.96.36.199) right now and things are much better. But, I thought I'd ping the Plug list for other recommendations. Reliability and privacy are the priority in that order (with privacy a close second). I don't need all the add on features of parental controls, malicious site blocking, etc.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
