@BryanInPHX I haden't use Namebench in a while, and when I finished, it was showing google.com as "hijacked" Did this happen with you? Seems its a bug with some routers and how they tunnel the DNS request and/or if the namebench App has old IP's. Either way it came back as my current DNS is the fastest.
Another odd thing I noticed is some videos are coming up as HTML5 even though I have disabled the HTML5 trial. I was taking part in it some time ago, but that was one of the first thing I tried disabling when having the issue. Why would Youtube be showing me HTML5 if not part of the trial? Are some video's on youtube just encoded that way?
::Edit:: It "possible" that I might have stumbled apon something. I was reading the google thread below about people getting locked in HTML5. The fix it to go to »www.youtube.com/html5
join the trial, then quit the trial. I don't know if it did anything to help with my problem, but it fixed the HTML5 glitch and it seems Youtube is running faster. It may just be happening to run faster right now though. Only time will tell.
