I sat on the Security and Stability committee for ICANN and was part of the folks that reviewed SiteFinder.

OpenDNS is not SiteFinder; Give them a try, the DNS resolution is blazing fast and they do fix up the most common typos.

One thing massively different between openDNS and SiteFinder is that you have choice -- the choice to use them. IMHO many will choose to use OpenDNS because it is fast and can offer protections you just can't get from running your own resolver.

For those who have not yet seen this:

They will 'correct' your spelling mistakes for you.

From their FAQ:
Why is OpenDNS smarter?

We fix typos in the URLs you enter whenever we can. For example, if you're using OpenDNS craigslist.og will lead directly to we're not sure what to do with an error, we provide search results for you to choose from.

How does OpenDNS make money?

OpenDNS makes money by offering clearly labeled advertisements alongside search results on error pages. OpenDNS will provide additional services on top of its enhanced DNS service.
