With the second largest network, this has now become a part of CISCO Systems Inc. OpenDNS uses caching technique and indexes all the websites/ IP addresses that has been used to navigate through its server. Thus if the second time request comes for this IP (or website) via the OpenDNS server (i.e. if you have applied the OpenDNS IP Configuration) then your request takes no time to get resolved and produce you the desired web page.
So if you have asked your browser for a website that has been previously asked by another OpenDNS user, you will get an instant reply if you have already visited the website before.
It also prevents phishing attacks via a database provided by Phishtank ( a community website used by Yahoo mail as well) to prevent phishing pages to appear.
It also prevents porn or adult content from loading into your browser thus parental control is a beautiful feature of OpenDNS.
