If you're not using Tor browser, why not?
@ajroach42 Don't really know how, or whether I need a VPN to use it, or really why it would be necessary for my purposes... plus I tend to associate it with my stalkers.
@hache would you be interested in answers to those unknowns?
@hache >or really why it would be necessary for my purposes...
That depends entirely on your purposes! The more people there are using Tor, generally, the stronger the network is.
You can use tor to anonymize your web traffic, to send and receive files anonymously (using onionshare), and to host websites on your local machine without having to deal with DNS or security certs. It makes it harder for companies (and others!) to track you, when used correctly.
@hache Maybe you don't have a need for it! That's aokay. I am attempting to learn more about the perception and use of Tor.
> plus I tend to associate it with my stalkers.
I'm sorry to hear that.
@ajroach42 IceCat has a Tor addon installed by default and still lets me store my bookmarks, unlike Tor Browser, which loses them after each upgrade
@ajroach42 It's slow and buggy and often fails to connect (Android client).
