comment Set DNS server on OS X even when without internet connection
One reason to use a DNS forwarder on a client machine is to maintain a large blacklist of ad/malware domains without suffering the performance penalty of the resolver daemon grepping the now bloated hosts file on every request. The merits of this approach notwithstanding, dnsmasq loads /etc/hosts into memory where the lookup time will be miniscule. Also, if you do web development, it allows you to avoid the small nuisance of adding local domains for every site you are working on.
