All about DNS over HTTPS, separating concerns about the protocol from concerns about centralizing it with large cloud providers:
"We’ve previously established that users do not have strong or informed opinions on the source of their DNS, so whatever happens will be decided by browser vendors, on behalf of internet users."
And this is why we need more than one browser. Recall that Google is the 90s Microsoft of the 2010s.

@ceejbot This is a really good article, and I appreciate the neutral position that separates DoH from DoC(loud).
@ceejbot As a longtime Firefox user, I keep forgetting Chrome is even a thing. To me, there's just Firefox and things to use to download Firefox (e.g. IE).
@ceejbot I don't think chromium is using google's dns because I have a local one (no loopback on my internet box)
