Re: [tor-talk] Why do you use Tor?
I began using Tor as a way to circumvent censorship... so anonymity or
privacy were not my primary goals. Some of you may know that I made a
program called ProxAllium which keeps Tor running in the background so
that I can use the SOCKS proxy in my browser to circumvent censorship.
These days it is different though, as I have switched to Linux as my
main operating system and therefore could not use my own program. I also
have a VPN and use Mozilla-Cloudflare's DoH DNS to circumvent DNS-based
censorship from my ISP...

It's also nice if I want to watch a specific video or resource on a website and don't want it in my recommendations later on. That said there are some things I just look at in Safari (please don't judge me for using a WebKit Browser :P )
