"Discretion "

What do you like best?

I enjoy the ability to keep my IP address hidden from potentially harmful websites. It allows the ability to mask all types of things within the browser. It also allows a way to step around administrative blocks placed on a network. This can be useful if you're in a company that thinks specific websites are malicious or detrimental to network security. The ability of layered protection can still keep the network safe and intact. I like the ability to select specific extra protections for certain avenues as well. I also like the tooltips it gives in the program. These allow you to realize certain sites can do specific things if they can get you to maximize your window, or to click on specific links within their sites. The extensions are extremely useful to have installed as well.

What do you dislike?

The program can tend to be sluggish if you have multiple avenues opened within it. I dislike the load time as well, even though it is necessary to layer yourself in.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Grab the extensions within the program. These extensions can give you an extra layer of protection as well as helping you stay more involved in what is happening within your Tor browser.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It can allow a dynamic way of approaching potential customers in the web. I've realized the benefit of extreme network protection and integrity within this program. It is uncompromising when you chose to use it.

What Encryption solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"need improvement"

What do you like best?

to be fair it's the best regarding the safe browsing especially when you are sharing the PC with other friends or colleagues. so you don't have to keep your history safe and hidden from other people.

What do you dislike?

the updates in this program need to be more consistent in order to fix the new pop up bugs and problems especially regarding the search engines since sometimes if you search for something the result might take a while to appear. in addition it's I think kind of difficult for the new user to do the sitting if they don't have enough knowledge in the networks.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

safe and encrypted browsing mainly

"Fun to explore!"

What do you like best?

Tor is another way to access the internet. Generally, people access the internet using google chrome. This only accounts for roughly 90% of the whole internet. Tor allows the user to access the "deep/dark web". My favorite part of tor is exploring and reading chat rooms about relevant topics. Tor does a good job with this since it is uncensored! I also really like the whole anonymity that comes with exploring the depths of the internet with tor.

What do you dislike?

I do not like how slow it loaded new web pages. The slow connection is caused by bouncing the IP through different nodes across the globe. Personally, I would trade the slow connection for the anonymity that tor offers. To navigate through tor is really hard since all the websites have really weird URLs. An example is tmskhzavkycdupbr.onion. This is a website that you can buy pretty much anything from. From the URL the user cannot tell that that is the case. My point is it is hard to find what you are looking for and navigate through the deep web.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I find a lot of articles about ways to get around society norm. I am large in the cryptocurrency market. There is a lot of information on the "pump and dumps" on tor since it is kind of unethical. I would search the deep web until I come across a "pump and dump" site. Then send them some bitcoins and they will give me all the information about the "pump and dump. This has made me more money then the average person can imagine. I generally stay with the same site now since I can trust them.

"it's good "

What do you like best?

it's very good regarding the privacy while browsing, easy to use especially that its features are so similar to the firefox.

What do you dislike?

the size of the program page is confusing since they told you not to change the size for better privacy so no maximization which is sometimes not good, also sometimes some of the websites don't work for no reason and you need to refresh the page many times to open the website and maybe it won't work.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

private browsing and accessing to the banned websites such wikipedia, SOHR and so on

"Tor Is Your Bridge to Anonymity Online"

What do you like best?

I like that Tor is built with privacy as the number 1 priority. It has great features built-in that makes it easy for a novice to be protected. With Tor there's no need to be an expert or even understand what Tor does for the user's privacy.

What do you dislike?

What I dislike about Tor is the slow speed of my browsing experience.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use it! It's probably the best option out there. It is easy to use. I highly doubt that there is anything more user friendly with the amount of security that Tor has that's available on the market.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Security and privacy are the #1 problems facing business and consumers especially as cryptocurrency increases in popularity. I have experienced the benefit of having my browsing tracks virtually untraceable.

"Awesome browser!"

What do you like best?

This is an awesome browser if you want to keep your IP and history , i like it because it keeps you safe also from Java Script track , that's mean that in most of the cases the web pages that you visit cannot track you , so they cannot know from where you are connected or what kind of pc or operative system you are using ( yes they can know everything haha ) .

For exemple : Do you remember when you are looking your facebook wall and in the middle of all your friends posts , you can also see some advertises that target what do you like in a very specific way?

You can stop that using tor , nobody will track you ever.

Also i love that you can enter onion web side or what is called "darknet" , there are many funny stuff in the darknet and with tor you can navigate it and see what's is hided in the normal internet.

What do you dislike?

Nothing in particular , i'am not an expert so i cannot talk about things that goes far of my knowledge about this browser.

Sometimes can be a bit slow due to the proxy connection , so you have to connect to a server in another part of the world which can compromise the speed of your internet connection, but nothing serious.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just be aware on how to install and how to look for what do you want.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The benefits, are huge , it's very good to feel that you are not target of thousand of advertises and that nobody knows what are you looking , i think with this browser internet can be a safe place again.

"Keep away from prying eyes..."

What do you like best?

Distributed global nodes allow persons to surf the internet anonymously.

What do you dislike?

The browser itself is slightly outdated in its layout, this could prove difficult for users if they do not understand the layout. The speed can sometimes be an issue. If there was a way to remove torrent abilities over tor the network would most likely be able to run faster.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do not use as a peer to peer connection, you will slow the entire network down

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Tor allows research into the dark web, allowing me to track down threat intel and potential adversary information.

"Secure way to browse."

What do you like best?

It's a secure method of browsing the internet. Packed into a browser based off of Firefox. Well supported and is always being updated.

What do you dislike?

The startup is really slow and the page to page browsing is as well. Although I do like it always being kept up to date, the process to update the TOR browser is also very slow.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Used in combination with VPNs, you should experience pretty good protection from snooping.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Maintains a security from client to server. Especially when using sensitive websites.

"One of the best tools to connect to the internet safely (if not the best)"

What do you like best?

Tor Browser is a browser that can surf the web anonymously. It is a modified version of Mozilla Firefox to use Tor network, a global set of anonymous network nodes that difficult to identify who navigates through it. Connect to Tor requires literally a few clicks. It is available for many platforms, from the three major desktop operating systems (Windows, OS X and Linux) to others such as Android. The chat (TorChat) is a communication tool by excellence on the Internet; a good way to chat safely (Windows only), which assigns a series of random numbers and letters for each user. We'll just have to share it with the recipient to talk safely. All connection occurs on the Tor network. Mail2Tor is very similar to TorChat but for emails. Its page can only be accessed from a Tor browser and it also lets you send and receive emails safely.

What do you dislike?

It has some drawbacks, the main one is that it significantly reduces our connection speed, so navigation is slower. Although the level of security offered is very high, it is still not far from being perfect, in fact the Tor Project itself admits it in its official website; to put it simply: the more time you spend in Tor, there is more chances for someone determined to find you to succeed.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Set up the software and use it is so simple that anyone who accesses the web very often should have it installed and ready to use, if you use Mozilla Firefox you'll find it quite familiar because it is a modified version. You must have in mind that the browser is safe, but not necessary some sites you access through it, since for example, and although it seems obvious, use Tor to access social networks is not much better, because all these services store their users information. Tor is not infallible if you use plugins like Flash or Java. Only the Tor browser is secure, this is one of the most frequent mistakes by most people. The only information that is safely sent is the one you exchange through the Tor browser. In other words, your computer and your connection are not 100% secure, only the Tor browser, unless you use other external protection software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can use the Internet anonymously and much safer.

"Tor for a secure internet browsing"

What do you like best?

I think Tor is an amazing tool when you want to browse the web anonymously, if you want some more security when you do something important, tor is your friend.

What do you dislike?

I really dislike that it is so secure that it is full of illegal things inside, like child pornography and that is attracting some kids to check the "deep web" which is part of tor to visit those illegal sites.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just don't check the "deep web". Use it for a more secure browsing not for checking illegal websites.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When I need to do some ethical hacking or pen testing I use tor, so I can help anonymously some devs with issues in their sites.

"Fairly functional, but the extra security causes the browser to be slower than Chrome."

What do you like best?

Private browsing and the knowledge of secure connections.

What do you dislike?

The browser can be somewhat sluggish and lacks some features like plugins.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give Tor some consideration for secure browsing, but for many day-to-day activities, something like Chrome will still do the trick.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Tor provides the security and privacy we need with certain business transactions.

"Anonymity for everyone"

What do you like best?

Tor works best if you're looking to be anonymous and don't want to be traced.

What do you dislike?

When connected to the Tor network, it's a given that it won't be as fast as just connecting through your regular network, however sometimes, it is painfully slow.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're looking for a way to hide your footsteps and be anonymous while surfing the web, Tor is the way to go-- plus it's free!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Great for when you have to cover your tracks on the web and don't want to be traced. It works well for helping you stay anonymous, as long as you don't do anything that may reveal your true IP address (ie. opening .pdf files.

"I'm falling in love with it completely. "

What do you like best?

It protects your privacy. Easy to install and it's secure as well. Even a simple google search happens through encrypted.google.com. It looks more like FireFox with more security.

What do you dislike?

Initial setup has to be made easy. I had no clue initially after installing and I setup some relay options to open the browser.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You will love it. Do a google search for " what is my ip" on chrome and TOR to see the difference. https://www.torproject.org/docs/tor-doc-osx.html.en will answer all your questions on installation and configuration.

"Amazing Private Browsing Experience"

What do you like best?

Tor offers a completely secure and private browsing experience that allows you to be completely anonymous to all sites you visit.

What do you dislike?

As it is not a major browser, it is typically not considered when sites are being designed.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you love being anonymous and hate targeted ads based on your location on websites, Tor is a great browser, it is free, so check it out!
