I clicked on my bookmark for javaranch and it took a full 20 seconds before the dns got resolved and javaranch page showed in safari. But after that the subsequent clicks are at normal pace. Somewhere I read this update has a new version of lookupd and is expected to browse faster.
I am on wireless as my ethernet port is broken and so cannot test on ethernet.
My DNS lookups are slower, but they do now work. 10.3.6 had some weird problem where I would get host not found the first time I visited a domain. This seems to have been fixed, but I do see the slowness at times.

You are right. 10.3.6 had that double dip dns issue. To fix that I had entered some dns servers in my network configuration.
After 10.3.7, yesterday I removed the dns servers from my configuration and now sites load pretty fast. So far I have not experienced any double dip dns problems. Now I can also happily join the legions of 10.3.7ers who seem to be enjoying a snappier system !!
