OpenDNS hijack google.com

There is a page about the google issue here

In summary there is a problem with Dell and Google who have done a deal to redirect all traffic from new Dell computers to a more ad-heavy version of google. The OpenDNS servers redirect this traffic to the normal google engine. Nothing sinister, in my opinion.

Does anyone think OpenDNS will help provide access to restricted sites from countries with DNS filtering e.g. some asian countries.
