The power of III

Summum ius summa iniuria--More law, less justice

Using Tor, surfing anonymously

So I downloaded Tor, and tried it today.

It is slower than direct connection, as it uses several connected encrypted servers on the way to the destination.

Using the browser directly, I went to my own blog.  The tracking program I have recorded the pageview as if it originated from Hamburg, Germany.

You cannot use it on websites for streaming video like adobe flashplayer.  This is a vulnerability for security, according to the information provided by the developers.

It will be good for arriving at and viewing specific content containing websites without the point of origin being known.

Email security should probably be covered by 256 bit encryption, like PGP.

Still learning the ropes here.

Comments and recommendations from those in the know are appreciated.
