    I set this up for personal use, but I thought I'd share!

    To use it, set the DNS of your Internet connection to 45.55.142.122 and do a connection test

    This should put you at Google, where you can search around with the limited browser

    Hopefully this is of use to people who don't always have a computer on hand to host a server

    There's now a page for this over at http://switchbru.com/dns/ which is designed to be easily shared.

    It's also too bad that it looks like YouTube doesn't work with this method (still requires a proxy). youtube.com/tv used to work but for some reason no longer does (YouTube made changes?). Hopefully there's an official app soon, then.

    Updated to handle the newer connection URL in 3.0 from this comment.

    Also, a reminder that this DNS doesn't block updates. For that, Reswitched DNS will block without a browser redirect, and DNSwitch4All will block as well as provide the browser hijack.

    SwitchBru DNS: Only browser hijack
    Reswitched DNS: Only update blocking
    DNSwitch4All: Browser hijack + update blocking
