I'm a OpenDNS user but I just discovered SafeDNS and looks pretty nice. So I was wondering has anyone tried SafeDNS? And is it any good?

PCMag > SafeDNS

...effective at basic content filtering, but it didn't show an actual ability to block real-world fraudulent or malicious websites.

I don't use OpenDNS. I prefer SmartDNS. If you want a SmartDNS to stream country-blocked videos on Hulu,for instance, you will need a VPN with reliable and speedy connections. Otherwise the videos will keep buffering. All of the above recommended services come with superfast connections that are extremely stable. The listed VPNs have uptimes close to 100%. So you wouldn’t have to worry about a connection dropping out in the middle of a big file download. You can read article here for more info.

Do not hesitate to pay a bit extra for additional security features. While you may not be able to enjoy these with the SmartDNS, you will certainly find extra safeguards extremely beneficial for private browsing purposes.

If you want privacy would be better an VPN or maybe an proxy like Privoxy.

Is just for privacy that you want it ? DNS is just a resolutions for site names.
