Tor is a toolset for organizations and people that want to improve their safety and security on the Internet. Using Tor can help you anonymize Web browsing and publishing, instant messaging, IRC, SSH, and other applications that use the TCP protocol. Tor also provides a platform on which software developers can build new applications with built-in anonymity, safety, and privacy features.

Communications are bounced around a distributed network of servers, called onion routers. Instead of taking a direct route from source to destination, data packets on the Tor network take a random pathway through several servers that cover your tracks so no observer at any single point can tell where the data came from or where it's going. This makes it hard for recipients, observers, and even the onion routers themselves to figure out who and where you are. Tor's technology aims to provide Internet users with protection against "traffic analysis," a form of network surveillance that threatens personal anonymity and privacy, confidential business activities and relationships, and state security.

    Inforwars... Please. Read on for more exciting 9/11 was an inside job news.
    Tor is still safe to use as long as those using it don't get lazy or use old, buggy software. Tho if you're doing illegal stuff anywhere online you're taking risks.

    Well said @Uriel

    It's simple. If you want to dabble with this project. Don't get up
    to any mischief. Hundreds, even thousands of the IP's used are listed
    on Honeypot & Anti-Spam sites. If you don't understand what I've just
    said, Leave well Alone. Still gets 5* tho..... lol
