That's fine, until Chrome starts mandating DNS over HTTPS "for security reasons". That bypasses the hosts file and sends the DNS queries directly to the chosen DOH server.

Then, when someone starts offering a DOH server with built-in ad-blocking, Chrome will suddenly mandate that you have to use Google's DOH server "for security reasons".

And oh, what a surprise: they'll "accidentally" introduce an annoying delay in responses when looking up any of their competitors. They may not be able to force you to use their advert malvertising search engine, but they can sure as hell make it as difficult as possible to use anything else.

What they won't tell you is that the "security" they're interested in isn't your security; it's the "security" of their corrupt business model. Suspicious | :suss:
