Default Comodo Secure DNS

Does anyone have any knowledge or experience about this (other than what they've read on Comodo's website )

Thanks

A "Switch Now" link is there... which means that the service has been started. The IP addresses for the DNS are also given at the right hand side of the page, in a box titled "Switch Now!".

From what I gather it's been available since the beginning of July but it still doesn't appear to offer the same depth of protection as OpenDNS. My main concern is that users might switch from OpenDNS just because it's "Comodo" and end up with an inferior service. I would just like to see more clarification about what it does cover and what it doesn't.

I'll wait to see what else appears here over the next week or so then I'll mail Melih for a statement

I've been wondering about this, but decided to keep with OpenDNS anyhow (mainly because of its customizability).
I also agree with MidnightCowboy about more clarification on this.

Yes, I did. That's because of its mammoth cache.
It ultimately depends on your ISP's DNS though, but OpenDNS definitely offers more security and can also censor out pretty much anything negative you choose (for your kids, family, yourself, etc.)

Taking a DNS request by donkey here in Brazil would probably be faster than using my ISP's own service so speed is something I couldn't comment on with accuracy

These are very good points about family security though which can all be set up independently of browser configs etc.

I'd urge any parents/guardians reading this to investigate the possibilities for themselves. The settings are not so difficult to configure but anyone needing individual guidance only has to ask here and one of us will respond.
