    Default TOR bad for staying anonymous?

    I have read that TOR is a sub par option for staying anonymous.

    I know exit nodes can sniff traffic including encrypted traffic. However this is a privacy issue, not a staying anonymous issue. Unless of course your sending emails with your name in them or logging into your myspace.

    I also understand an attacker might control multiple nodes, and this would decrease TOR's effectiveness and possibly reveal the origination of the traffic.

    So my question is, If I simply wish to browse the internet (google, cnn...etc) and not login to anything how secure is TOR in maintaining my anonymity? This is all theoretical and I am not trying to clutter TOR servers by reading the daily post on with TOR, I just wish to comprehend why people believe TOR is bad for staying anonymous when browsing web pages.

    This has nothing to do with BT.
    You might try google for more info. You could also look at eff.org for more on anonymity.
