Run by elitists not for general user. May sites are blocked. Bugs in program. Too many updates. Not adequately tested. Cannot used most add-ons without outing your anonymity. Many free vpns are better but not as anonymous. Their browser is a memory hog that significantly slows down and often stalls your computer unless you have all the latest specs(again elitist and for linux nerds). "developers" at tor now admit it has a bug that allows sites to activate javascript even after you have deactivated it. I have used tor for over 8 years and it has gotten worse as far as it's ability to get around hackers, isp blocks and webpage blocks. My isp has figured out how to DOS tor connections and using their so called bridges doesn't help. So many websites block tor it is necessary to use a vpn and not rely on tor.

This would have to be a personal favorite. This program along with Sandboxie almost completely makes you anonymous online. I would recommend this to anyone concerned about their privacy online.

I had been interested in the TOR project for several years by now. Although it has a hige potential, it has several drawback which cannot make me fully satisfied with it.
1) it does not display all the content of the website (for security reasons)
2) as it makes tracking problematic, this affects a normal user - everything is working slowly.

TOR is an achronym for "The Onion Router" and is an anonymous web browser that allows you to access websites and data without being easily tracked (like most web browsers). Privacy is clearly one reason to use TOR, but using TOR also gives you access to parts of the web that aren't accessible otherwise, like Silk Road where you can buy all sort of things that are likely legal and illegal in your country, using bitcoins. So be careful, but there's a wonderful world out there. By the way after you are set up with TOR you can access Silk Road with this link (won't work with a normal browser) http://ianxz6zefk72ulzz.onion/index.php
