Your thoughts on this new 1.1.1.1 from Cloudfare please ???

Cloudflare's DNS privacy tool would skirt ISPs, speed up your internet - CNET

Thanks for any comments !

Working well here too.  Quad9 (9.9.9.9) has a couple ms quicker ping, but Cloudflare 'feels' faster.

Entered details for IPv4....easy, no problems

 

For IPv6.....see pic below...."Apply" button remains grayed out

 

what am i missing/doing incorrectly/..?

This 'tests' your IPv6 and IPv4

 

I eventually got the ipv6 addresses to 'take' by entering them on separate lines.

 

So far....not impressed

Just setup my Linksys router for Cloudflare after reading the Lifehacker article at: https://thehackernews.com/2018/04/fastest-dns-service.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+TheHackersNews+%28The+Hackers+News+-+Security+Blog%29  No issues. All working well.


I never make the same mistake twice....I always make it 5 or 6 times just to be sure!

Set it up about 24 hours ago, no issues so far. Get about 3 ms faster response times (10 compared to 13) vs google DNS. Have not noticed much of a change in the load times but at least I feel like my privacy is more protected. :)
