Acrylic DNS Proxy is a cool open source tool to locally proxy and cache your dns requests. This will save you a couple milliseconds on page loads making browsing feel more fluent. It also lets you query multiple DNS servers at once to proceed with the fastest response.

Also it is quite easy to set it up with additional Namecoin based dot-bit dns servers for *.bit dns queries.

Acrylic homepage:
http://mayakron.altervista.org/wikibase/show.php?id=AcrylicHome

Config file with fast Google DNS servers and .bit support via Khal's and Bitmaster's server:
http://blockchained.com/stuff/AcrylicConfiguration.ini

To install follow the detailed instructions on the Acrylic website. It is quite easy. You can then replace the config file with the one above.

If you feel uncomfortable about Google seeing your non .bit DNS requests you can use your regular DNS servers from your internet provider by doing this: In the configuration file above replace both Google servers 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 by the ip address of your local network standard gateway ip address (192.168.0.1 on most systems) or other DNS servers of your choice (both fields need to be set).

thank you
but why do you think "Alternate cryptocurrencies" is the right section for this? ...

Interesting, I wonder if there is a way to make it do look ups from a local namecoin+ncproxy or similar?

This was super useful.

.bit domains are working for me now without using browser extensions or web-proxies. Thank you!

Btw, is there a solution that works for Android as well?

Have you used the new config, restarted, set your dns to 127.0.0.1 and restarted your computer?

Thanks for the hint. I replaced it with Khal's server in the config above. Hmm seems like there is no server in the US then currently...

For those who have not yet seen it, there is a page with Namecoin DNS servers here: http://dot-bit.org/List_Of_DNS_Servers

You can edit the acrylic configuration file via start-->programs-->acrylic dns proxy-->edit configuration file and change the tertiary and QuaternaryServerAddress to the server of your choice (might want to ping the server before to check if it is working and responding fast from your location).

Google makes me somewhat uncomfortable these days...   USUALLY the ip 192.168.0.1 will lead to the DNS servers of your internet provider so you can try to replace the first Google DNS server 8.8.8.8 with that and remove the second one 8.8.4.4 for a little more privacy.

You could also just use OpenNIC as the regular network DNS and get access to all those extra TLDs, with no privacy issues.

Or use BlockAid and get automatic routing through government blocks back to the site you were trying to go to, and keep the OpenNIC TLDs.

For me they are slightly slower...   but probably it is hardly noticably. Are they stable?
