    "A great piece of software!"

    June 12, 2011   |   By XPY

    Version: Tor 0.2.1.26

    Pros

    Thank you very much for making me nearly 100% anonymous.

    Cons

    A little bit slow (I know, it's not really the fault of the devs).

    "Looks like I'm visiting from another location/country."

    May 11, 2011   |   By wiseguy7000

    Version: Tor 0.2.1.26

    Pros

    On the online newspaper I go to it displays information about visitors on the home page. When I visit it reports another location, usually another country. Easy to install and use. Turns on and off. This is what I wanted. And it's FREE!

    Cons

    It is true that some sites will not let me log in, like my bank, for example, because they use the location of my computer to confirm my identity. But, I don't care about that.

    Summary

    Good, free application that helps to provide anonymity on the web as long as you have never told the site who or where you are. (Remember, they could know about you in other ways, such as, cookies, beacons, etc. that may be set on your computer.) So it is not foolproof.

    "Surf anonymously!"

    May 10, 2011   |   By eddy1337

    Version: Tor 0.2.1.26

    Pros

    I wanted a program that could hide my ip adress and make my internet surfing private, this program do.

    Cons

    Remember at settings in the program to not only use "just a client" But choose the "As a relay"(or something like that. This so you also help building the network bigger, stronger and most important, more secure!

    Summary

    This program does what it build for, and more if you make it do your self, a lot of option here.. Nice work!

    "good, but huge downsides"

    April 10, 2011   |   By lilhacka

    Version: Tor 0.2.1.26

    Pros

    works very well, strong protection

    Cons

    can't use flash or java, and many other things.

    Summary

    good if you don't need flash, but if you casually browse the web, use something else

    "Works Very Well"

    April 03, 2011   |   By mikey1975777

    Version: Tor 0.2.1.26

    Pros

    easy to set up and use (even for a novice), does what it claims to do, user has the option of running a "relay" from their machine to help the Tor network reach more people

    Cons

    slow browsing speed, which is to be expected

    Summary

    Tor is an open-source anonymity software that just works well, plain and simple. The software developers are committed to providing online privacy to everyone, which I believe is important in this day and age.

    "A very good program"

    March 18, 2011   |   By cyberidd

    Version: Tor 0.2.1.26

    Pros

    - Once loaded, its much faster than any of the download-able proxies I've used, and is faster than many of the online ones as well.
    - Is very portable (can be loaded from a flash drive, etc.)
    - Does an outstanding job of protecting your info.
    - Free.

    Cons

    - Is slow to load initially (although once loaded is not slow).

    "Easy to set up and use"

    January 18, 2011   |   By islandeady

    Version: Tor 0.2.1.26

    Pros

    Quick and easy to use, even for an ordinary user with no special expertise.

    Cons

    As you'd expect, everything runs slower, but this is a small price to pay for safety.

    Summary

    Keep in mind that most people just need to download Tor to the desktop or to a flash drive. You don't need the whole Vidalia bundle. I downloaded Vidalia first, and then I found that it was hard to uninstall. Lots of people seem to have had this problem.
