Yep, TB is designed to generate undiscernible traffic. But Internet is not just webâ :'( In my case, I use more Tor for other stuff than web than Tor for web stuff, for NSA-threats protection or just to bypass facist firewalls. IRC, XMPP, SSH, email, through HS or not, with TransPort needed (most of application outside web browser support badly if not at all SOCKS proxy), etc. (As always) depends of your threat models, but for sys-admin, main threats are outside the browser (see Â I hunt sys admin Â or 12/28 Spiegel Snowdenâs documents). To stay in peace, stay hidden :) Currently, I also need something more like Vidalia or ARM, for system wide usage, than TB, very limited for usage outside the web. -- Aeris ProtÃgez votre vie privÃe, chiffrez vos communications GPG : EFB74277 ECE4E222 OTR : 5769616D 2D3DAC72 https://cafÃ-vie-privÃe.fr/
