i have been using this web browser for a very long period of time since i was informaed about it by my good friend brian.It major funtion is to hide the anonimity of the person that is using the internet at that particular time.It also hinders spywares fromtracking your internet and getting to know more about your personal information.When you click on new user it has the ability and capability to change your ip address and it will show that you are in germany and then later after you refresh your web broswer it will show that you are in france and the next time it can show that you are in united states of america nd the cycle continues.It hides the information that you are pursuing on the internet and therefore no hacker can be able to get to know your personal information or even where you are browsing from.

Pros

  • it hides all the content that you are doing in the internet
  • it prevents your information from being hacked to

Cons

  • there may be some bugs on the internet

Do you feel insecure while browsing?? Tor will secure all you browsing activity

By Frank Kanyua

tor browser is an internet based plugin that enables any user to browse anonymously when he or she browses using it. It basically works in the way that many ip hiders works. It has a minor difference because it blocks all connections that try to acquire your exact cookies and ip address. In order to stop all the online adds that use ips. You only need to install this..

I actually dont see the need of the browser because some of the safe sites actually depend on your ip in order to get ads built in and for them to get paid.. Though some other sites are basically used as spywares in order to track your movements everywhere even after you leave your destined site..

Although tor is the best at what it does some websites, plugins,programs and addons will try and break tors security to pluck your real ip address. Now you ip is your lock once someone has it he or she can do much harm with. They can subscribe your ip to many online ads, but this is not always the case since, some office computers share one ip address if they are connected to the same server..

Some of the things that weaken tor are torrents because they actually ignore commands to read the ip differently and head over to read the real ones, this means that they actually intrude also the firewall in your computer and can share your computers full details. Addons also pose as a threat since they actually request and share your comps info, to implement this addons can introduce keyloggers to your system without you noticing, some powerful antiviruses will detect this but the addons will prompt you not to remove them..

Tor will be very helpful if you feel very overprotective of what is in your comp, but if you actually dont have sensitive information in your computer, there is no need to protect you whole computer from all the threats out there..

CONCLUSION

Since tor hides your real ip and location it will most likely also work as a vpn.. practically though am not sure.. Some sites use your ip to block you from accessing them, but them tor hides your ip from being detected, so maybe just maybe you will be able to access the sites..

Pros

  • It is portable and can be shared easily
  • Provides you with the best online mask
  • It is free of charge

Cons

  • torrenting over the tor browser weakens it

Review

Tor Browser is an Internet application designed for protecting your personal information and keeping users anonymous to all kinds of spyware. The main benefit of this program is the fact thatit grants a safe connection to the Tor Network service, with a strong level of security enabled. Tor Browser offers multiple tools for securing your connection and helping you to keep your browser clean and free from external spies.

This Tor Browser version is based on Mozilla Firefox, using the same interface and a similar way of working, with even a market service to download extensions to increase its functionality. The main target of Tor is to avoid traffic analysis. This ensures that your connection is not compromised, by assigning a dynamic IP address that changes any time you connect to Tor Network.

Tor Browser provides multiple tools for securing your Internet connection.

Through the included Vidalia Control Panel, you can activate Tor connection and change the settings of the application. It will also show you the bandwidth used since the software was activated. If you want to change your identity while you are surfing the Internet, all you need to do is click on “Use a New Identity” and your IP address will change automatically, avoiding the need for advanced configurations.

Why should I use this program?

Nowadays, the Internet is the most important source of information, in all possible senses. Your Internet activity can be analysed and your own privacy exposed, letting third parties obtain your personal data easily. Tor Browser enables an advanced routing process for protecting you against these kinds of menaces, thus improving your privacy. Thanks to that, your private messages and sensitive information won’t be traceable or detectable. As well as that, thanks to this software your physical location won’t be revealed to the websites you visit.

Tor Browser is a portable application that does not need to be installed on your system in order for it to run properly. Additionally, this Tor software does a pretty good job of handling cookies from any website, allowing you to establish filters against them if you don’t trust the webpage not to gather information about you.

On a negative note, Tor Browser slows down your browsing and downloading speed, but it is scarcely noticeable. This is a tiny price to pay in order to significantly improve your own security and privacy against external parties looking for your personal information. Tor Browser is pretty popular around the world due to its features, and the possibility of preserving your anonymity, which makes it perfect for business people and journalists as well as general users.
