This study uses Cloudflare's DNS service to encrypt both the requests and responses to any DNS queries in order to increase a user's privacy. Mozilla has been happy so far with the performance of DoH and have stated that even the slowest users have seen a huge performance improvement. Due to this, Mozilla is now expanding this Shield study to a small portion of the Release channel to get a wider aud

As the internet has shifted to securing data and encrypting traffic by default, one surprising privacy hole has remained, which leaves a trail of sites you visit open to sniffing by network ne’er-do-wells. A proposal to remedy this is being rolled out slowly—by Mozilla in its Firefox browser and by Google in Chrome. This new technology approach, called DNS-over-HTTPS (DoH), can shield your browsi
