    Hi,

    Whenever I turn on Tor, my connection instantly goes into snail mode. Is this normal? It makes using Tor such a chore.

    Here's your computer:
    You --> Internet --> Site

    Here's your computer on proxies:
    You --> Internet --> Proxy --> Internet --> Site --> Internet --> Proxy --> Internet --> You

    Make more sense now? You're passing the baton to another runner, you gotta wait for him to make it all the way around the track and give it back to you. However fast he runs, you're still gonna be just sitting there until he gets back.

    That might help.

    N - Also: Fuck TOR.

    If it is too slow just use a new identity

    Thanks, I'll try that. Tor happens to be slow as fuck for me, slower then similar services.

    tor will be slower than the equivalents, you arent using a single proxy, your using multiples in a row with full encryption... dont expect miracles!
