On Friday, Mozilla said it plans to implement the DNS-over-HTTPS (DoH) protocol by default in its Firefox browser, with a slow rollout starting in late September.

Under development since 2017, DoH transfers domain-name queries which try to match domain names with server IP addresses over a secure, encrypted HTTPS connection to a DNS server, rather than via an unprotected, unencrypted bog-standard DNS connection.

Not sure about the changing horses in mid-stream ... will have to see how things work out.

routing all those queries through a single service provider? (i.e., cloudflare)
i don't see a problem with that...

ONE service, not a redundancy? Eggs in one basket?

If the provider fails it falls back to normal DNS I think.

What is wrong with DoT, except it can be blocked?
