Isn't the linked article kinda out dated? It's still talking about Privoxy. I'm no expert, but I don't follow the article, as relates to Tor / Polipo / Torbutton now.

I am sure that Roger Dingledine's comment explains some of the errors and is based on the difference between Privoxy and Polipo when dealing with HTTPS.
Vidalia / Tor bundle no longer uses Privoxy. Info sure seems out of date. Comments on blog or in mailing list aren't a good substitute for official FAQs - probably small % of users subscribe to the mailing list.
However, a) the information is still on the web;
b) if you go to http://ht4w.co.uk/ you will see that the Introduction is dated 23 January 2010 which implies the information is up-to-date;
Up to date ?, but containing wrong info, according to others. Besides, why would one want (or expect) to go a blog site to get "official" documentation on how Tor works?
c) a neophyte would not necessarily understand the most recent incarnations of Tor / Polipo / TorButton.
Not a neophyte - just not a true expert. As general rule, please don't talk down to users, even IF neophytes, when they're asking legitimate questions. I take it w/ grain of salt - others might be offended.:-)
