Every since we moved from Texas and left our beloved Verizon FIOS, I've been trying to find ways to make our web surfing faster. Apparently the good folks at Google spend a lot of time (OK, a lot *more* time) trying to reach the same end.
Google has announced it's free public DNS called… wait for it… Google Public DNS and it is FAST. If you're on a mediocre connection, you should definitely consider swapping your DNS servers for Google's… pronto.
Why would Google do such a thing? Fast internet = more searches = more revenue for Google.
