Anyone else try this? And if you have, what are the benefits/consequences of it?
I tried both the Google DNS and Open DNS.
I first tried Google DNS (22.214.171.124/126.96.36.199) and checked my ping. Here are the results:
Automatic DNS: 53ms
Google DNS: 11ms
I then tried using Open DNS settings (188.8.131.52/184.108.40.206) directly applied to my router and here are the comparisons.
Default DNS: 65ms
Open DNS: 5ms
This is honestly a joyous occasion for fighting games online, but again, at what cost? Now that I read up on it, these services can directly detect what you are doing because it relies on sending IP address info to a local server. At least that is what I am getting from the articles. I know an above average amount of information about networking, but I don’t know everything.
