[tor-talk] Question Regarding Routing of Network-Traffic using Tor-Browser
I am from Germany and I use the Tor-Browser very often. I think Tor is a
I have a question regarding the connection from my Tor-Browser to the
I noticed, that Tor tends to always connect to the same Tor-Relays on
the internet. I can observe this when I monitor the connections using
Netstat on my Linux-machine - even after restart of the Tor-Browser or
even after a reboot of the Linux-machine.
So my initial Idea was to delete the "cached*-files" in the
/Data/Tor-Directory before each start - but this does not help - Tor
always connects basically to the same Tor-Nodes all the time. I think
this is probably due to an internal "ranking" in the Tor-Network.
So my question is, wouldÂnt it be better (or more secure) for the
End-User, if the Tor-Browser (or the Onion-Router) would change the used
Tor-Relays i.e. every 5 minutes. As the Tor-Browser connects to more
than one Tor-Relay, this could be staged, Drop Tor-Relay 1 after
connection to Tor-Relay 3 has been established i.e.
Are there any plans to enhance the Tor-Network / the Tor-Browser in this
Thank you very much.
