Thanks!

> Auto-detect OS and suggest specific setup instructions right on the landing page?

It should already pre-select your OS tab on my.nextdns.io on the Setup page? If that's not the case, then it's probably a bug.

> The website goes blank when I block third-party JavaScript from loading. Can you please see if you can fix that?

Weird, we will have a look.

> simplednscrypt has been handy for me to DoT/DoH/DNSCrypt with AdGuard DNS on PC. You could include instructions in the Windows section for that? https://dnscrypt.info/implementations/

You can use your custom sdns:// endpoint listed on the Setup page, we assumed users using dnscrypt clients would know what this means. Good point, we will add setup instructions for it.

> Provide a generic DNS endpoint like AdGuard does?

We already have them, we decided to not show them on the website as it may confuse users. We may add them back.

> What's the backend that fronts DoH, DoT, and DNSCrypt queries? Is it simply relayed to Cloudflare underneath the covers? How do you do that?

It's a custom-made backend, and we recurse using unbound (we don't forward to cloudflare or anything like that).

> Re: Privacy Policy: "We store user data following modern security standards". What user data is stored using what modern standards? I like the terse policy document, but I feel there needs to be a fine print detailing data collection and data retention.

We will definitely improve that, we had to make some calls on priorities for the launch.




Minor nitpick, but > is universally used to indicate quoted text, and you've reversed the meaning here.


Edited, thanks!


The website goes blank when I block third-party JavaScript from loading. Can you please see if you can fix that?

Weird, we will have a look.

For those that block JavaScript by default, it would also be nice to get something more than You need to enable JavaScript to run this app. on the main page. At least a short blurb what this is.

(Since the most recent batch of CPU vulnerabilities, I have decided to use uMatrix to block anything but CSS by default.)


> Weird, we will have a look.

What's "weird" is that someone thought to mandate third-party map and chat javascript widgets on what should have been a simple page explaining what the combination of Cloudflare and PiHole is.


It detects my FreeBSD machine as windows.
