All your HTTP(S) traffic is encapsulated into SOCKS https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SOCKS With HTTP(S) proxies, you can only proxying HTTP(S) protocol, and not raw socket. > I understand that Tor also uses SOCKS (e.g. torsocks).

Tor doesnât really use SOCKS internaly, it only provide a SOCKS proxy server to allow applications to communicate with the Tor network without modification (provided it supports SOCKS proxy). torsocks just replace standard TCP stack with a fake one (encapsulating TCP socket into a Â SOCKS socket Â) for application not supporting SOCKS proxy natively.
