CloudFlare DNS?

Does anyone have long term experience with CloudFlare DNS? I like it's privacy feature, but am wondering if people using it experience any speed hit surfing the internet as a result of switching away from Comcast DNS?

 

Thanks.

I have used this tool to test different DNS's and found that Comcast is just as good as the others.

Been using it since the day it was launched, and I absolutely love it.

 

It's noticeably faster, and unlike some other alternative DNS services, it has iPV6 support.

CloudFlare is slightly faster in this benchmark, at my house, anyways. That's fine, since I'm using it for the privacy aspect, not the speed.

 

Thanks.
