Speed up DNS lookups
Authored by: Baumi on Jun 06, '07 10:12:59PM

While that may be useful for normal browsing and most users, it can be an absolute no-no if you're running scripts that depend on getting correct DNS errors, e.g. for URL validation.

Not trying to bash OpenDNS here, just pointing out that, depending on your needs, there might be some caveats, because it's a system that's completely geared at making interactive use convenient, and breaks some prerequisites for automatic use in the process.
