So a third company has jumped on the DNS bandwagon, joining Google and Comodo. Seems like we have more choices than ever with regards to who we trust out Internet browsing history to. But... it's probably a useful alternative since numerous ISPs aren't as pro-active as they should be about protecting their customers.

There are more DNS providers than Norton, Comodo and Google. There is OpenDNS, ClearCloud DNS (still beta), ScrubIT and DynDNS.com Internet Guide (DynDNS provides DNS infrastructure for Norton DNS).
