The Mozilla web page on how it introduced an implementation of "DoH"
<https://blog.nightly.mozilla.org/2018/06/01/improving-dns-privacy-in-firefox/>
in collaboration with Cloudfare is actually a fascinating read. And going
through the comments, it seems that this approach in not without
controversy.

The advantage of DoH preventing man-in-the-middle attacks enables it to
circumvent deliberate firewall-level DNS filtering (corporate policy, adult
sites, other filters). There is also a legitimate concern of such
configuration being done at the browser level rather than the OS. However,
at least DoH is available for anyone to try on Firefox (version 62 and
later). Instructions are in the above link.
