I wanted to get tor for use on IRC, but it seems prohibitively
difficult to set up. And I'm a programmer!
There's this tor browser bundle that I guess is supposed to make it
super easy to use, except I already have firefox, I don't want to
download another copy of firefox and set that all up. Then there's a
torbutton on the firefox plugins page, but that's confusing because I
thought you had to have "vidalia" and "privoxy".
And then I really want to use opera irc. That's what I have
installed. I see no reason to use any particular browser or irc
client with something like tor.
So what I'd really like is a windows driver and control panel that
hooks into the outgoing internet, can be turned on and off, and
intercepts all traffic. No wondering about dns leakage or anything
else. I don't really want to run a proxy server and then run vidalia
to put things through the proxy server and then run a special version
of a browser, etc., etc..
Anyway, just my two cents.
