    A story on the Ungleich blog claims that Mozilla integrating two new DNS related security and privacy features into Firefox is dangerous.

    The two features discussed in the opinion piece, DNS over HTTPS and Trusted Recursive Resolver are available in Nightly builds of the web browser currently.

    We talked about DNS over HTTPS when Mozilla revealed it to the public back in March 2018 and published a guide to enable DNS over HTTPS in Firefox.

    DNS is used to convert host names and domain names to IP addresses. The request is sent to a server which returns the IP address so that the connection can be established.

    Firefox uses the default system DNS service by default which often is provided by the Internet Service Provider unless it has been changed by the user or an administrator.
