It happen every time when you give an input domain name such as xyz.com in your browser then your computer first converts this domain name into an IP address of that server in order to download the web pages and supported file information. Windows always uses DNS or domain name server for looking up that information. Additionally by default windows also uses an ISP’s DNS server and the performance of DNS resolving server varies by depending on each service provider. There some large national service providers also, those are well known to provide unreliable and slow DNS servers.
Generally DNS server uses a one complement that affects your internet browsing speeds. As every domain name you type in your computer always resolved into an IP address, so the amount time will delay the loading of any web page. If your ISP DNS is overloaded then you can see delays in multiple seconds before the web pages starts to load.
An OpenDNS always provides free additional DNS server that can be used by any internet service provider. So if you setup your mind for using OpenDNS servers instead of your default ISP servers you can increase your internet browsing and loading the web page speed by cutting down on the delay length between a resolve domain name and getting correspondence IP address .
