TOR ... to use, or not to use?
Hi all, I'm new here, so please excuse my noobness.
I'm one of those guys wanting to better secure my browser/information, and I know Proxy jumping is one way of achieving that (IE. TOR project).
Only problems are:
1) Many websites block well known proxy servers.
2) The last jump from proxy to server is not encrypted, and prone to man-in-the-middle attacks.
I really don't mind the 2nd issue, as long as I'm not logging into any websites and want my information (password) leaked.
However, if I want to log-in (especially HTTPS / SSL), I think I would stay away from those.
I'm currently using google's secure DNS proxy server to do my browsing.
So... the question is:
Would you guys use TOR to do your secure (HTTPS / SSL) web browsing?
If not... how/what would you do/use?
