Internet imbeciles, aka British ISP lobbyists, backtrack on dubbing Mozilla a villain for DNS-over-HTTPS support

Perplexed

Maybe it's just me, but I don't see a huge benefit in DoH for concealing Internet history, except to ensure that the results received are from the queried server( i.e. no MITM). After all, if you use those results (HTTPS or not) you'll be exposing the fact of a connection to a specific site (time + IP = site identification) to your ISP (or any other interested parties with access to your ISP logs).
