For some time while I still used MS Windows I had been using the TOR network to try and maintain a modest amount of anonymity whilst online. If you are not aware Organisations and individuals around the world are watching your internet streams and looking for useful info. that you might be sending. Certainly running something like Peer Guardian is very revealing and I suggest anybody interested in Internet Security including anonymity and privacy, checks it out to help get an understanding of how bad this actually is. However, there didn’t seem to be a Linux equivalent for Peer Guardian so had assumed I would be out of luck on the TOR front, all is not lost however as nixCraft point out on this article regarding TOR and Privoxy.
