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.

What Encryption solution do you use?

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.
