OpenDNS Servers to speed up browsing

Your Internet connectivity can be slow for variety of reasons, one of the reason could be a slow DNS servers provided by your internet service provider. Your browser will communicate with DNS servers to search the website you are looking for every time you enter a new website into the browser. If the DNS servers are not fast enough then your connection will be that much slower.
