DNS caching server DnsSpeeder is a DNS proxy server that acts as a local DNS server and can speed up web browsing by caching DNS queries locally instead of using your ISP for each request. The program automatically changes your network DNS settings to use 127.0.0.1 whenever the server is started and changes it back to your default settings when it is stopped. Other features include automatic cache updates, DNS statistics, and an option to configure domain filters that change the way certain domains are resolved. Copyright Snapfiles.com

Works ok, privacy needs watching 3 stars by ianmacm Sep 25, 2010 (Read all my 173 reviews)
DNS caching is not a new idea, but DnsSpeeder scores over other programs because it is easy to use and is no-install. As an example, visiting amazon.com will store the IP address 207.171.166.252 on the local hard drive, so that it does not have to be looked up every time the site is visited. The downside is privacy, because DnsSpeeder will store a list of names of the websites visited, which would not be cleared by the normal browser cleanup. DNS lookups typically take around 200ms (1/5 second), so the time saved by DNS caching is not great unless the server is responding very slowly. DnsSpeeder is worth a look, but beware, it is tracking your browsing habits very thoroughly. show Review details
