In first - Big Thanks to the DNS Blocklists project for their significant contribution to "Keep the internet clean" ideology

In this quarter of 2023, I've introduced various enhancements to the ecosystem.

🔻Here's the scoop

  • 1️⃣ now incorporates the DNS Blocklists project into its own DNS filtering mechanisms, ensuring a cleaner internet experience.
  • 2️⃣ Successfully resolved major Apple content delivery issues for Eastern Europe, enhancing DNS delivery experience.
  • 3️⃣ Experience a boost in DNS response speed by approximately 5%. The General pool is now around ~111ms, while Local pools are at ~70ms.
  • 4️⃣ According to Alternativeto, stands out as an alternative to Quad9, NextDNS, AdGuard DNS, AhaDNS, and BlahDNS.

✨ And most importantly, is your go-to solution for a clean Internet – free from Ads, Tracking, Metrics, Telemetry, Phishing, Malware and all that other "Crap.” without agent installations and add-ins in your browsers.

Embrace yourself and stay focused with the power of clean Internet with DNS 😎
