Announcing 126.96.36.199: the fastest, privacy-first consumer DNS service by Matthew Prince 2018-04-01
Cloudflare's mission is to help build a better Internet. We're excited today to take another step toward that mission with the launch of 188.8.131.52 ― the Internet's fastest, privacy-first consumer DNS service. This post will talk a little about what that is and a lot about why we decided to do it. (If you're interested in the technical details on how we built the service, check out Ólafur Guðmundsson's accompanying post.) https://blog.cloudflare.com/announcing-1111/amp/
Network operators have been licking their chops for some time over the idea of taking their users' browsing data and finding a way to monetize it. In the United States, that got easier a year ago when the Senate voted to eliminate rules that restricted ISPs from selling their users' browsing data. With all the concern over the data that companies like Facebook and Google are collecting on you, it worries us to now add ISPs like Comcast, Time Warner, and AT&T to the list. And, make no mistake, this isn't a US-only problem ― ISPs around the world see the same privacy-invading opportunity.
