TOR is the TOR

Ok- I admit I didnt know what I meant by that title- but TOR is amazing. However- recent security news suggests that the 'governments' are able to access some of it or something and it is not completely anonymous (not surprise here) but the browser bundle is ( I am confused now). I heard that Tails might also been compromised. Oh well. I have implemented scripts that toggles on/off of TOR after a 'x' number of seconds. This will also change the IP address so I guess this increases the anonymity for a bit.

I can't imagine an internet without Tor! If there is no Tor with the heavy censorship and website blocking the internet becomes Intranet in here. Tor is like the lungs of my connection through which I can breath!

It's probably worth noting that Tor will be seriously annoying if you don't understand the implications of using it beforehand. As said on their site, Tor doesn't allow you to watch Youtube or accept any cookies, both of which can track you (it doesn't matter whether they actually do). Personally, I wouldn't use it unless I had a really good reason to.

Good point. I never use things like Youtube on Tor. It's more for the forums, darknet email, and messaging. There are other browsers for the rest!

Try my Tor Browser bundle (Contains Tor 0.2.1.21, Vidalia 0.2.6 , Torbutton 1.2.4, Privoxy 3.0.15, Polipo 1.0.4 (optional), and Firefox 3.5.6), my bundle is modified from Tor Browser Bundle for Windows 1.2.10.

I have very good experience with TOR(+Vidalia) to keep anonymity in the web and defend against network surveillance that threatens personal freedom and privacy. It is very simple to use with an own self opening Firefox Explorer, if you start the Tor button. With only one click in the TOR-menu in the system tray you can change your identity (IP-address).
In this special Firefox Explorer I set http://www.aboutip.de/ as Homepage to see after page-refresh, what IP-address I use after clicking "New Identity".

I only use it with sockcap to support proxy for my desktop app which doesn't have proxy settings. For http proxy setting, I use another tool because of the speed.

I see 2 advantages and one disadvantage:
(A) The Tor Browser Bundle lets you use Tor on Windows without needing to install any software. It can run off a USB flash drive, comes with a pre-configured Firefox web browser and is self contained. If you would prefer to use your existing web browser, install Tor permanently. More information for very quick installation of the bundle inluding Vidalia see: https://www.torproject.org/torbrowser/index.html.en
(B) I like the multi language user interface and support, e.g. german language is supported.

Disadvantage: surfing about TOR is very slow, but You can surf in a distributed, anonymous network.

I use Tor (Vidalia bundle) to connect to the BitTorrent trackers that are blocked by my ISP. Avoid using the Tor network (which is run by volunteers) for P2P connections though as it may bring adverse effects to other users.

https://www.torproject.org/faq#WhySlow
"The current Tor network is quite small compared to the number of people trying to use it, and many of these users don't understand or care that Tor can't currently handle file-sharing traffic load."

This does really good, but it does slow down your internet speed when you have it active. but if you have to hide your location and IP information then this does great.
