Google Google has just launched its very own public Domain Name System resolver, with which the company hopes to speed up internet traffic. The search giant claims its DNS is more secure (through protection against cache poisoning attacks) and faster than others.

I don't know how NZ ISPs behave, but the ones most people use in North America are slimy, paint-huffing crack addicts.

AFAIK "all" of the big ISPs in Canada and the US are hijacking failed DNS requests to redirect you to their own services instead of just telling you it's a bad host name.

My ISP (Teksavvy) doesn't, but they're a rather small player compared to Rogers and Bell.
