Who has that kind of time, brains and money? Three letter government agencies. We do know that a certain percentage of TOR users are indeed up to nefarious tasks. Hidemyass might work for private citizens, but they will hand you over to the authorities if asked.
I do know that the included browser had known issues that resulted in compromised users. So, safe is a matter of opinion. If you want to hide your IP address from the casual observer it works fine. If someone really wants to find you, it can be done. I write for a living and I use several pen names across several genres. It boils down to wanting to keep my general location private as well as preferring not to link Pen Name A to Pen Name B. My use of TOR is basically for my own peace of mind Would it be fair to say that sites like Hide My Ass the ones that are well-known and have been around for a while are safer to use than TOR?
I would presume they have risks of their own as well I tend to steer clear of them because of all the annoying ads. I use proXPN. Originally I got it to bypass a regional blackout for a football game I wanted to stream. It is now used to create a better Netflix experience on Comcast. It may also be an good option for you. You could have each Pen Name come out a different area of the world. No benefit to me. All I want is to post on forums while keeping my IP address private.
That said, the point BInarybaited made about mistaken identity when using the same IP as criminals does concern me. So I will likely be deleting the TOR browser bundle. Edit: RKilroy, I just saw your post now. Thank you for the offer and the link. I will look into it and PM you if I decide to go that route. The problem is, not just law enforcement can use this hole. That is the problem with back doors for the good guys, they work just fine for the bad guys too.
True, but I also think what happened this fall with the takedown of the Freedom Hosting sites will result in hyper-vigilance. If I remember correctly, the exploit used by law enforcement had a ridiculously simple fix: forbidding scripts globally. Every browser has its weaknesses, no? And of course, if the good guys can exploit them then the bad guys can too. Community Forum Software by IP.

Tor is a free, global network that lets you browse the Internet and the dark web anonymously. There are, however, a few things you need to keep in mind to use Tor securely. Is Tor illegal? How to use Tor safely Like with any privacy tool, proper usage is critical.
Tor will encrypt your data as it passes through the Tor network, but the encryption of your traffic between the final Tor relay and your destination site depends upon that website. This protocol establishes an encrypted link between the final Tor relay and your destination website. These plugins can be manipulated into exposing your IP address in ways that Tor cannot prevent.

Similarly, you cannot use BitTorrent over Tor. Torrenting will send out your real IP address in the tracker GET request, deanonymizing your torrent and web traffic. It will also slow down the entire Tor network. It is also important to note that Tor will not protect your privacy from a website you must sign in to.

Yes, TOR Browser is still safe to use and it will be if you keep using it like any regular mainstream browser. While yes, there are people misusing it for their benefits but same is the case with other browsers which people use to access illegal content. I've recently started using the TOR browser bundle because it seems like a safer alternative to using a proxy for anonymity purposes but is it?
