Product ranking:#2 in Anti-Spyware
Easy access to control DNS blocking and see stats.
They are charging a LOT more now for their business products than they did in the past. A LOT MORE. And, their new product, though powerful, is more than most folks need in a business setting.
I used OpenDNS for whitelisting. To me whitelisting is 1000 times more powerful at protecting you from the bad side of the web than anything else. But they no longer offer pricing for this feature only, and force business users onto a higher priced product that has really too many features to be useful for all but a select few.
Here's how to use it: http://youtu.be/nMg-0Hwx8Q4?hd=1
I have no problems with this product
You don't have to download this, this is just an updater, the video I mentioned in the Pros of this comment are all you need

Correction* This is not an updater, this is a direct link to the OpenDNS site, and there if you register you can download the updater, but you can only use the updater if you pay for the full version, to just use OpenDNS's IP settings, just do it for free
Better browsing, feel safer with it, only my current freeware virusscanner doesn't give me the same confidence against phishing. Really easy to install, no need to worry about compatibility with other virusscanner/firewalls & Free! Truly amazing.
haven't found any yet.
Never had problems with load times of webpages, but with new computer with Windows 7 suddenly got really bad.. Other PC was still working fine though. I thought Chrome was to blame, because I'd just switched to Chrome on the new system, also tried Firefox and continued to have issues (Download speed was still fine however). Resetting Modem & Router solved nothing. After reading online decided to try OpenDNS and it's worked like a charm, no more problems when browsing, and also a lot of extra functionality I wasn't even looking for, I feel safer browsing with the anti-Phishing stuff.The fact that it's free and doesn't interfere with Virusscanners, firewalls and basically all the security stuff that often ends up fighting eachother makes it a great option when experiencing problems with browsing. Will probably keep using it mainly for peace of mind.
It is really useful for me to log in Facebook
registering is incredibly difficult
Filters DNS. Yippie. If you need real control for your business, purchase something stronger such as Barracuda, Websense, or iBoss filter
What about the rest of the web. did we all forget about streaming videos, chat, etc. Not a realistic solution for todays Internet admins looking for real control.
my issue is as a network engineer, you should know that opendns is fine and dandy for basic filtering. The web is much more robust. Tried this and have to say its ok to filter a five year old. But any teen will walk through this. At an office, even worse. what about chat, file sharring, music downloading, FTP, group membership, and so on. If you think your employees are locked down, someone needs to wake you up. And the network engineer, no offense but seems that online degree didnt provide a good background. Again, decent but not realistic for savvy networks.

BLOCKS SITES WHICH ARE BAD
Nothing about this
I feel so much safer surfing the internet with opendns
I like how it speeds up your internet and the other features such as the shortcuts.
Nothing is bad.
way to many to fit into 250 characters. its flawless other then the issue mentioned below. really easy to set up, reliable and FREE!!!
only issue the category blocker. you may block a few categories that are in obvious need of it, but if you choose things like proxys or portals it has a tendency to block a large amount of search sites our employees need. other then that its flawless
Its free and there are 10000x as many pros as cons with this software. its free and gets great reviews the world over. if anyone has any serious issues with this site they need to contact someone because they obviously haven't set up there computer right. I also love the feature that lets you know if you are reaching their site through them or you default DNS
Fast and very configurable, there are many blocking options beyond porn these days
I haven't found any yet
Boosted my loading and download times, easy setup with a great step-by-step tutorial, and they don't force you to sign up to use their service.
I actually can't think of any.
