    If someone uses an Incognito window, will the domain still show up on the OpenDNS stats?

    I can't think of a reason why it wouldn't. Just wondering though.

    Yes, indeed it will. Same with InPrivate on IE, and other browsers.

    Just because it isn't logged in the browser doesn't mean the Router and/or OpenDNS won't see it.

    As cindelicato says, incognito mode doesn't have an influence on using OpenDNS, but this:
    http://ohryan.ca/blog/2008/12/10/google-chrome-bypasses-opendns-and-how-to-fix-it/

    And you also would disable "Use DNS pre-fetching..." to get more realistic stats.
    Best is to uncheck all except maybe "Enable phishing and malware protection".

    Or even better is to not use Chrome at all, but Chromium.
    E.g. Iron: http://www.srware.net/en/software_srware_iron_download.php
    Also here you should disable DNS pre-fetching to keep your stats realistic.

    There is a way to force everyone on your network to use OpenDNS. You will need to run DD-WRT firmware on your router. You can force users to use OpenDNS through the router and stop all attempts at bypassing OpenDNS. You do so by going into the "Access Restrictions" tab and selecting 'dns' in the services drop-down list under "Blocked Services". Now the router will block all DNS server access from within the network that attempt to bypass the router.

    You will need to setup OpenDNS on the router first, of course.

    Unfortunately your contribution is totally off-topic in this thread. :sad:
    This here was about the Google Chrome browser, not a router firmware, just in case you failed to understand the matter here.
