Is there any real advantage to using openDNS? Can it be used with cable access? What are the dangers involved?

A New Bible Built with Modern Technology

New Testament - Breakthrough Version

www.breakthroughversion.com

The Breakthrough Version achieves a much higher level of accuracy. It is:

  • more literal
  • more precise
  • more contemporary
  • more correct
  • more consistent

This Bible even translates hundreds of forgotten Greek words that no other Bible does.

It is an essential tool for Bible teachers and students, yet it is easy to read, even for newbies.

One advantage I can see is if your ISP's DNS servers are heavily loaded with users.
Then using the servers at OpenDNS could give you faster connection times.
My ISP is AT&T. I have noted times when using their servers that a click on a link would essentially be ignored, i.e. no reaction to the input, requiring using the refresh button if the requested address was shown in the address box.
I would attribute this to overloaded servers unable to handle the load from network requests.
I would assume it would work with cable, unless your cable company is using some odd sort of setup for their network. works fine with dsl.
Same dangers as using your ISP's DNS servers. It all depends on what sort of people are employed by the company.
