Re: [tor-talk] How to make TBB useable as "system Tor", as Tor, Vidalia, pluggable transports system level replacement?

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  I hunt sys admin  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.
