systemd-resolved made the web browsing experience really bad. Web pages in the browser took few seconds to even show up (blank page for few seconds). The only modification I made is using DNS-over-TLS servers from NextDNS. Everything else I did as advised in the arch wiki. The pages took a good few seconds to load.
Then I switched to Knot Resolver while still using NextDNS/DNS-over-TLS. Guess what?! The page loading is quite satisfactory!
I made this post because I thought since systemd-resolved is included by default it should be quite good, why needlessly bloat the system by installing a 3rd party DNS resolver?! Guess what the assumption might not be always right.
people continue to harass him and threaten his life to this day. There are reasons people dont like it, you can find a lot of info as to why around the net. Some is good, some is FUD, and some is basically conspiracy.
would take a good chunk of effort and the majority of the linux community doesnt really care. If someone can and has the time/want to do so and makes it a compelling option i dont see anyone really arguing it.
Community who doesn’t know better - sure, but a lot of developers and security oriented people care a lot - which is an actual driving force…Sure it would take an effort, but that’s something very well worth it, rather than fixing many problems caused by soystemd across pretty much all distributions…
I’d love to see something like that,kinda like pulseaudio / pipewire, unfortunately personally i’m lacking experience for such serious programming.
My ISP/Government messes with DNS so I need a secure DNS like DNS-over-TLS or DNS over HTTPS which is not possible on my router. Also I would like ad blocking which, incidentally, I like NextDNS for it.
If you can get your hands on a raspi (or something similar), set up pihole and set that in your router DHCP settings as DNS server.
That way you can do network-wide, “host” based DNS blocking and use a DNS-over-TLS upstream DNS server.
