We're proud to announce that DNS-over-QUIC, a very promising protocol, has become a proposed standard. We believe that DNS-over-QUIC is better than other popular alternatives (DNS-over-HTTPS, DNS-over-TLS) and has a potential to completely replace old unencrypted DNS protocols. But first things first.
We're really excited about the opportunities that the implementation of DNS-over-QUIC as a standard can bring: a faster connection, better encryption, a lesser packet loss rate, "Connection Migration", and much more. And we're looking forward to taking advantage of all of them! Meanwhile, you can read how to set up DoQ in AdGuard for iOS and AdGuard for Android or configure a public AdGuard DNS server that uses the QUIC protocol (you can find it in the "Our server addresses" section). Or create your very own private AdGuard DNS server, choose any protocol you want (like DoQ!) and be directly in charge of all your DNS requests!

Can someone explain to me in human/understandable speech what QUIC is, and how it's actually better?
Will this help ?
