No filtering or nothing. You can simply use it. I found it really useful when my isp had troubles with there dns servers.

I figured it out bye using a software called Namebench. Found it on google codes. http://code.google.com/p/namebench/


Google DNS - 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4

More Info: http://code.google.com/speed/public-dns/
I have mixed results with OpenDNS - often they are slow. I've been bouncing between Google DNS and Comodo DNS.
Benchmarks on my end of the planet consistently show Google as the fastest - that's from using GRC's benchmark utility as well as Google's.
