I am overriding dns entries on a Mac for example.com by using a file in /etc/resolver/example.com that contains the nameservers to use.

The problem is Chromium seems to ignore these files. I have flushed dns cache, cleared browser cache (which worked in chrome)...but I still cannot get chromium to pickup the proper dns settings for the domain.

Firefox, Chrome, and Safari all use the proper DNS settings for the domain.

Any ideas?


Chrome (and I assume chromium) has an available built-in resolver. It will ignore local resolve settings.

go to chrome://flags/#enable-async-dns And make sure it is set to disabled.

Also you can goto chrome://net-internals/#dns and force chrome to flush its internal dns cache.
