[tor-talk] Why does TBB use SOCKS and not HTTP(S)?
In the Preferences section of the TBB, the proxy is SOCKS 5 on
Since the TBB is a web browser and the web uses HTTP(S), why is the HTTP
settings not used.

browser uses HTTP(S). Why does the browser require SOCKS and not HTTP?
I know there is a very simple answer but I don't know what it is!
