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

Re: Still Perplexed...

OK, so an IP doesn't identify a specific website (in many cases) so, If I make a dns lookup for 'dogsittingonyourface.com' and get an IP 123.456.789.012 back - then go visit the same IP over HTTPS - it's still no guarantee that I actually visited 'dogsittingonyourface.com' is it? I could have been visiting 'catsittigonyourface.org' instead if it's hosted at the same IP. Add further that I expect that there are many more DNS lookups being spammed out from my computer that aren't due to directly typed URLs or clicked links - just page content loads...
