Google Public DNS

Google recently announced their public DNS servers. The server IP’s are pretty easy to remember too ( and The steps required to use these servers on a win 7 OS are described below:

1. Open up “Network connections” from the control panel


2. Right Click and select “Properties”.. Highlight IP Version 4:


3. Click on the “Properties” button. Click on “Use the following DNS server addresses” and enter the IP addresses provided by google in the space provided.


Increasing browser responsiveness by tweaking DNS resolution time is in fact one of Google’s main focus areas in the Chrome browser. Take a look at this article (and the informative videos) to learn more.

So, it makes sense that Google would want more people to use its DNS servers(preferably while using Chrome!). I have no problems with that – I am all for a better, faster Internet.
