    If any of you are as tired of slow loading pages as I am, you might benefit from this tip. It all depends on your ISP and its ability to quickly resolve DNS functions.
    Anyway, I have tested My ISP (Verizon) vs. OpenDNS vs. GoogleDNS. With the final results being that GoogleDNS loads my pages an average of 12ms faster than my ISP, and 10ms faster than OpenDNS.
    These being my results, and not knowing if any of you have used this or care about pageload times, I thought I would post you a quick link to a guide to see if you wanted to try it.
    This works on any version of Windows of course. Just thought maybe I could help a few frustrated souls out.

    yes google is fast but then it does nothing in the way protecting you unlike OpenDNS hence why they are a litle bit slower and if you can decern 10 12 or 22ms you've a stopwatch for a brain
