Default OpenDNS vs Google DNS

OpenDNS or Google DNS?

... and why... I don't know which one to pick and am no interested in the extra features of OpenDNS, but am afraid of Google seeing ALL of my traffic.

I go with google, they're google... nuff' said.

EDIT: Not like your isp don't log your traffic anyhow.. Nope..Isp's neeeeeeeevr look into your traffic evvvvver... /sarcasm off...
Believe me, if google even cared about your traffic they'd do something. Before that even happens your isp would have taken action as well.

That's why we use proxy servers...you do use a proxy...don't you? I certainly like my privacy from my ISP as well as others...

Na, i don't, because my isp does not call me ever. I admit to doing certain activities but as with the last forum it's probably illegal to talk about those on here and also have downloaded 200GB downloads in 2-3 days. They don't cap us, even though they're slow. In the 5 years i have been with them they've never called me. That, and they don't even ask why we're returning modems. If we need a new one, we go down to their main building and instantly and for free get a new one. Not even a monthly service charge!

Google DNS - Benchmarks suggest that there is less latency with Google DNS than with OpenDNS.

yea, i sort of feel like OpenDNS wants to tie you down into their environment. They should be more open (pun?)
