As Brave is currently using some new features from Chromium/Chrome (like the Tab Hover Cards feature), i’d like to know if the DNS-Over-HTTPS (DoH) Trial is already enabled (and how to use it) and what brave community and dev team think about it.
Recently i read in this article:
Centralised DoH is currently a privacy net negative since anyone that could see your metadata can still see your metadata when DNS is moved to a third party. Additionally, that third party then gets a complete log per device of all DNS queries, in a way that can even be tracked across IP addresses.
Even if further privacy leaks are plugged, DoH to a third party remains at best a partial solution, one that should not be relied upon as a serious security layer, since it will be hard to plug everything, especially if non-CDN content providers survive.
Encrypting DNS is good, but if this could be done without involving additional parties, that would be better.
So i’d like your opinion about it.
