ChrisPC DNS Switch is a handy application that lets you quickly change the DNS settings of your computer. Though the DNS server address is usually assigned automatically, there are plenty of cases when you have to switch between multiple addresses or when you want to quickly assign it manually. For such situations, the ChrisPC DNS Switch utility is very helpful.

ChrisPC DNS Switch is simple to use and straightforward, thanks to its intuitive interface that can be handled even by complete beginners. As a result of the fact that it makes toggling among multiple pre-stored DNS profiles such a fast and easy job, it is particularly useful on laptops where multiple connections are used.

Another cool feature offered by this neat application is the fact that it offers a list of DNS presets, including popular DNS addresses like OpenDNS, Google Public DNS, Comodo Secure DNS, and so on. There's also an “Anonymous DNS preset” group list that enables you to connect and browse the Internet anonymously. Furthermore, by switching to a Family Safe DNS you can block websites with questionable content like adult-themed ones.

Cutting long story short, ChrisPC DNS Switch remains the most convenient tool to quickly change the DNS settings of your computer. The free version displays popus, but that's a small price to pay for how much this tool offers.
