Anyone tried DNSCrypt?

Open DNS say that it provides security for web browsing over public Wi-Fi in a similar manner to SSL for e-mails.

I've been running it on my Mac Pro for several weeks. It seems to do what it says and I haven't noticed ay lag. The only downside, if you can call it that, is that lookups is now done directly from my Mac rather than via the router.

I just installed it. I was amused by the licence screen in the installer, which says:

"There would normally be a lawyer-ish license here. You probably wouldn't read it.

This is new and untested software, it might cause bad things to happen. We have no liability, but we've tried to make it good."
