“Google Public DNS Service ( Now Supports DNS-over-TLS Feature […] It not just helps in hiding your web-browsing history from ISPs and eavesdroppers, but also prevents DNS spoofing attacks.”

Am I the only paranoid guy who thinks that if I'm asking Google for a domain name, I'm effectively telling Google I'm accessing said domain?

@notabene @aral Exactly, it protects users from all eavesdroppers except the worst ones!

@aral @alrs Second point is: why would Hacker's News not mention that "oh wait, Google is going to be eavesdropping" - not a single word about it in the article.

@notabene @aral what eavesdropping? It's their server. Of course they log everything and correlate the requests back to individual users.

@alrs @aral Yeah, I know. What I mean is I'm taken aback by the lack of warnings/neutrality. The article reads like sponsored content without that.

@notabene that's why I wrote my own after the spec was released backed by opennic DNS servers.

had the same feelings when cloudflare announced their DNS would support it and be rolled out by default in FF.

You are wrong, if you left DNS prefetching on. In that case, you are only saying google that you may access that site because a link to it was presented to you, somewhere.
