Google Public DNS an OpenDNS Competitor by Google

Looks like Google just wants to rule over the Internet. They have recently launched Google Public DNS, an OpenDNS like solution which allows you to change the DNS of your ISP and use a much safer solution.

Today, as part of our ongoing effort to make the web faster, we’re launching our own public DNS resolver called Google Public DNS, and we invite you to try it out.

Google Public DNS also claims to be much faster than what your ISP can provide you with. A DNS server is basically a lookup server which converts domain names into machine understandable IP address. OpenDNS has been providing a similar service for ages now and this introduction from Google will definitely hurt them a bit.

What do you think of Google Public DNS? Would you switch to it from OpenDNS? Do let us know about your thoughts.
