Who uses this?

I am trying it, and my connection is faster. Are there any downfalls to this?

My internet connection is so slow and latent that a minuscule decrease in name resolution time wouldn't be noticed.  

I like some of these other services, but regarding their primary service of speeding up name resolution...is poor DNS resolution speed really a big issue for people?

Watch DL.Tv, they have a segment on it. This thing is, my connection is sometimes sketchy, and now it is really stable.

Plus certain filtering is done that cuts out a lot of malicious stuff. I like it, and this is the second time I've heard talk of it. TwiT talked about it last week.
