Re: [webtechnologydesign] DNS tools

Thanks for all the good info!

One question: Does anybody try to use a DNS server to resolve names that is not part of their ISP?? If so, what do you use and why?

Also, Lester did have it right that Chrome and IE do DNS lookups as you type.? Chrome is actually the worse and does it as part of the autocomplete, though I still don't understand how it helps that much.? IE does it for just the top 4 hostnames that match after 4 characters have been typed (which seems more reasonable.)
