There's alot to like about ControlD now, and it's obvious they put in a lot of work on it from the last time I tried it. I'm switching from NextDNS to ControlD. Honestly, their use of non-generic IPv4 addresses as a way of accessing your profiles was enough for that, which is something NextDNS does not offer. ControlD has gotten much better of android devices too, ads I was seeing before are not there anymore. I don't really care for the location of my DNS IP, it's not as close to my location as I'd like, but there are too many positives.

Pair with with NextDNS pro and you'll be a good to go.

Well damn. I'm using the paid versions of both, and I just ran a ping test between ControlD and NextDNS. NextDNS was very noticeably faster and more responsive. The ping results seem to back that up. Is that the case with anyone else?

Ping is largely irrelevant since results get cached unless you are constantly visiting new sites and the ping is Very high.
