If you're experiencing delays when opening web pages or even other web-based protocols, it's possible that you're using a slower or non-optimal DNS server. Since changing DNS settings by hand can be difficult, a developer has created DNS Jumper.
DNS Jumper is a totally free tool which simply changes your DNS settings on-the-fly. Whether you want to use custom DNS servers, a free service like Google DNS or others, DNS Jumper will configure your network devices to use the alternatives.
The program currently has a long list of free online DNS servers like Google DNS or OpenDNS and you can change which DNS servers you use by clicking the drop-down list within the main interface of DNS Jumper.
The fastest DNS servers can be used as this little utility also includes a speed test. Selecting the DNS server with the fastest response time should improve web browsing noticeably.DNS Jumper features and highlights:
DNS Jumper is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from network software without restrictions. DNS Jumper 1.0.6 is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
