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.

Certain infrastructure should never be monopolized by a single company -- and, clearly, Google aims to do precisely that.

And, somehow, by offering you the choice to use their DNS resolvers, they're planning monopolize the infrastructure of the Internet? You might want to put the tinfoil hat away and get a little perspective. Verisign's old plan to redirect invalid queries to ad pages does much more harm than a choice of another DNS resolver.
