Software Product Description

Advertisement
Tor is a toolset for organizations and people that want to improve their safety and security on the Internet. Using Tor can help you anonymize Web browsing and publishing, instant messaging, IRC, SSH, and other applications that use the TCP protocol. Tor also provides a platform on which software developers can build new applications with built-in anonymity, safety, and privacy features.

Communications are bounced around a distributed network of servers, called onion routers. Instead of taking a direct route from source to destination, data packets on the Tor network take a random pathway through several servers that cover your tracks so no observer at any single point can tell where the data came from or where it's going. This makes it hard for recipients, observers, and even the onion routers themselves to figure out who and where you are. Tor's technology aims to provide Internet users with protection against "traffic analysis," a form of network surveillance that threatens personal anonymity and privacy, confidential business activities and relationships, and state security.

Pros: 1st, let me say that to use JUST TOR, is not a good idea. Use a VPN along with Tor for the best security! TOR has an icon in its menu that allows you to CHANGE YOUR IDENTITY, which I suggested to them (I am sure others did as well) quite a few years ago. Their last versions (those versions from 1 year ago to now) incorporated this into their program. HOWEVER, when you change your identity, TOR refreshes (closes the browser and restarts it again). I DO NOT LIKE THIS.

Cons: NONE. Just try to use a VPN along with Tor and change your identity often in Tor. DOES NOT HAVE AN AUTO-TIMER TO CHANGE YOUR IP ADDRESS every so often at intervals, which it should have, but to do that, a whole lot of programming would need to be done. When changing IDENTITIES from the menu, the browser closes. IT SHOULD NOT DO THIS. None of my VPNs does this, so why should TOR? But, this great tool IS FREE, so I am not complaining, just hoping THE TOR PROJECT Engineers eventually change this ;-)

Other Thoughts: REMEMBER: YOU CANNOT USE THIS SOFTWARE FOR DIALUPS!!!! It is only for BROADBAND. /

/I gave this software a solid 5 stars because it IS awesome and I would suggest that anyone who likes Tor as much as I do, PLEASE DONATE TO THEM so they can continue making it better! I SUPPORT THEM FINANCIALLY, OFTEN! /

/GREAT JOB TOR PROJECT ENGINEERS!!!
