    Is 'TOR' Really The Best Browser For Security & Privacy Protection?





    Once again I'am forced to consider another browser. Firefox is giving me "server not found" (and "insecure connection"). So I have to "shut down" and "restart" even after I've previously "shut down" and "restarted"! Which browser is best for privacy protection? It all depends on who you ask. Ask Google and they will say Google Chrome. I'm still a novice.

    "Google Chrome is by far the most popular browser" they say, and libraries endorse it somewhat. Some say Microsoft Edge or Opera. Other sources say don't use those browsers. I have found Firefox to be useful and convenient (like showing your most used site icons such as WNF). I now have Windows 10 and a refurbished laptop. And Firefox has glitches here and there like, "no server". I followed the steps to eliminate the "no server", but the message creeps back (like losing the 'copy/past' function from time to time, and I know how to fix that) Built-in virus protection and ad-blocker on a browser is always nice. Go to Google and they refer you to companies that sell the software. Ad-blocker is built into Opera. Choosing a secure browser. I'am now thinking TOR. What do you think?

    Seems like you might have problems using TOR for gmail, as Google might get suspicious (re comments section). TOR might be overkill for most of us.


    ... many of those that use Tor use it specifically for anonymity because they are doing something illegal. Sep 28, 2015

      I've decided to go with the second best which is Brave.

            If you have tons of problems with Chrome but not Brave, then you should probably have few to no problems with Chromium (assuming you don't use bleeding edge versions). Since Brave and Chrome are both based on Chromium, they should perform similarly. Of course, Chrome has a lot of changes made by Google and Brave has their own changes.
