Tor Browser is not designed for everyday browsing but is mainly used to access ".onion" websites via the Tor network while protecting you from tracking and making you pseudo-anonymous.

For Tor Browser protection to be effective, you must set it to "safest", do not install any plugins and do not connect to websites that contain your true identity, it is counterproductive and can screw up the site's fraud protection, on "safest", some websites will not work and so will video viewing.

For everyday internet browsing and if you are concerned about privacy, prefer Firefox with uBlock Origin, Privacy Badger, HTTPSEverywhere, Decentraleyes, Cookies Quick Manager and disabled WebRTC in about:config, the purchase of a reliable VPN or DNSCrypt will enhance your privacy.

Important note: Using Tor for your privacy isn't necessarily more trustworthy than using a VPN, Tor relays are run by volunteers you don't know, you don't know how they do it, and you don't know what hardware they use. With a VPN, even a bad one, you have a better chance of knowing who you trust, more if it's known to be reliable, and even more likely if the VPN has a physical address.

Agencies like the FBI have the technical means to break into the Tor network if they wish, Tor make you pseudo-anonymous, not anonymous, anonymity on Internet don't exist, and don't forget who created Tor in the first place, the U.S. government through its two agencies, the United States Naval Research Laboratory and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).

Whether you're using Tor, a VPN, a VPS with a rented server, or your own server with your own VPN installed, you're always going to have to trust someone.

I like that Tor does not require its users to trust the relays [0]. But Tor is slower than a VPN [1] and does not support peer-to-peer file sharing [2].

I see that the Tor Browser is listed as an "alternative" to Tor. Just so people aren't confused, the Tor Browser uses Tor, so it's not technically an alternative. Tor refers to the network of devices running the software, whereas the browser is a modified version of Firefox that works together with the Tor network. It includes plugins like NoScript, which blocks things like Java, JavaScript, and Flash on different websites, and Torbutton, which allows you to easily change configurations on Tor. Nonetheless, the browser is great, and the developers keep making improvements to it!

Tor Browser is a good way to browse the web anonymously and experience a free, open internet. You may have to change some of your browsing habits in order for it to work properly, but if used correctly, Tor provides you with near-complete privacy.

Its really easy to use, and is great for browsing the clearnet, and stopping social media sites and corporations from spying on you. It still isn't fully decentralized. The nsa has caught up to the Tor Networks vulnerabilities. Sites are taken down frequently and if that is possible then there is a problem with the Tor Network. Its outdated. Tor Network nodes use real IP addresses so contributing to the network is not anonymous. Hopefully The Tor Project will patch these vulnerabilities soon. But the Tor Browser is a great start to protect yourself online.
