I have installed the HTTP-Enforcer chrome extension. Now if I open a terminal and type
ping google.com I see:
$ ping google.com PING google.com.home (126.96.36.199) 56(84) bytes of data. 64 bytes from kcherenkov.github.com.home (188.8.131.52): icmp_req=1 ttl=51 time=293 ms
kcherenkov is the github user that authored the extension.
Should I be concerned that a chrome extension has affected network traffic from the terminal? Should I also be concerned about any privacy issues with this setup?

Yes, I did configure the system to use OpenDNS at one time and it's still in effect. Why though would it resolve google.com to the github site of a plugin used by chrome?
