Re: Re[2]: Torpark if firefox already on computer

I noticed a slight blip on the processor speed side of the equation
with privoxy+tor+browser. Personally I have noticed that torpark works
better on the memory side of the equation. as to how fast they load
pages off the net, I haven't really noticed a big difference between
the two configurations. Not to nock tor but right now I think that the
choke point of the equation is in the tor network, and that we won't
really be able to test the operational speed of the torpark vs
tor+priv... untill the network is running faster than the end user
client can handle.
