A step towards Digital Freedom

Setup on Linux

Setting up takes two minutes and requires no technical skill or special software. Even if you’re a computer novice, pick your device below for an easy-to-follow setup guide.
While these steps are for Ubuntu, most Linux distributions configure DNS settings through the Network Manager. Alternatively, your DNS settings can be specified in /etc/resolv.conf
  1. Click the Applications icon on the left menu bar.
  2. Click Settings, then Network.
  3. Find your internet connection on the right pane, then click the gear icon.
  4. Click the IPv4 or IPv6 tab to view your DNS settings.
  5. Set the “Automatic” toggle on the DNS entry to Off.
  6. Provide the DNS addresses in the DNS entries field:
    • For IPv4: and
    • For IPv6: 2606:4700:4700::1111,2606:4700:4700::1001
  7. Click Apply, then restart your browser.
  8. You’re all set! Your device now has faster, more private DNS servers ✌️✌️

The world's most powerful supercomputer

A team of researchers led by an experimental physicist from the University of California, John Martinis, created a unique task to test the functionality of the Google host computer. In order to solve the problem, an ordinary Turing machine would take as much as 10,000 years, while a quantum computer could complete a complex calculation in just 200 seconds.

The calculation that a quantum computer successfully handled by Google kindly provided to researchers is the quantum equivalent of generating a very long list of random numbers and checking their values ​​a million times. Despite the fact that the result of the test does not bear the possibility of applying it outside the quantum world, it is of great importance in determining the computing power of the device. In addition, the achievement of Google can help in creating even more powerful and secure quantum computers of the future.

It seems that Google has just been able to make a real revolution in computer science. Using a quantum computer software called Sycamore, a Google spokesman announced a "quantum superiority" over the most powerful supercomputers in the world, because it was with Sycamore that they managed to solve a problem that had long been considered almost impossible to solve on conventional computers .
