    I REALLY don't want OpenDNS to replace Google as my default web-browser.

    Let me tell you what I had before OpenDNS turned into ****ing Nazi arse-holes.

    With Firefox, I could simply type in a query, press enter, and FireFox would automatically use Google's "I'm Feeling Lucky" feature, and take me directly to whatever I was looking for.

    So say I typed "YouTube" in my address bar on FireFox. FireFox would take me automatically to YouTube.

    OpenDNS has essentially ruined the ease of FireFox. It's not as convenient as Google, it's ugly... I just hate everything about it, and I'd like SOMEONE to help me figure out how I don't have to use this ****ing thing anymore.

    BUMP

    I really don't want to use OpenDNS anymore. They force themselves into my browser, basically advertising themself like Norton.

    I don't want this to be my search engine.

    I haven't finished reading this yet, but it is hilarious so far.

    I may even try to help if nothing is resolved and ihateodns is receptive at all.

    edit: Oh, maybe later, then. I'll be at work for a while.

    Wow, why did you pick this thread to ask your question? :bigsmile:
    Answer: You can get your *public IP* from all sorts of places. The private IP of any particular machine, you get from your own network.
    Some pointers for doing this programmatically:

    For your source from OpenDNS, it would be myip.dnsomatic.com .

    Aww c'mon guys. . .this dude is just expressing his frustration with not being able to use the other "nazi" home page hijackers (Google). LOL!

    @ihateodns Okay, if you want to use openDNS and have figured out that it's a REALLY great service, you should realize by now that OpenDNS has similar functionality and will automatically redirect your browser to the appropriate website if you type something into your address bar it doesn't recognize.

    OpenDNS does do this already. . .but it also depends on how you type the term "youtube" into your address bar.

    For example: "youtube" will cause OpenDNS to simply redirect you to youtube.com, whereas typing "you tube" will yield the OpenDNS search results page.

    Either way you'll be looking at what you want in two seconds flat, but in the latter case if you don't like the having an additional step involved (needing to click a search result for example), you can simply create an OpenDNS account, which is free, and simply customize "shortcuts" for your specific IP. This will allow you to type something even shorter like "yt" and get youtube.com for example.

    If after all is said and done, you still think OpenDNS stinks, follow Red Prince's advice above. =0)
