I am trying to find out how to achieve a high level of anonymity for a part of my web browsing. I am happy to pay for a good service. I have been using OperaTor for this purpose so far. I don't need superfast connection when I use this anonymous mode and the data size/month is quite small. Do you think Tor or a paid highly anonymous proxy server (or a combination of these) is better for this purpose? Is there a way to connect to tor over a private proxy? I know of tor-proxy.net for this purpose but I'd like to use my own proxy. My concerns are: [With Tor] Tor network exit nodes could log snoop traffic. A bit on the slow side. [With proxy] Not decentralized. Government could ask for connection logs. For instance upon recommendation by some members on this forum I checked proxybonanza.com and they told me this: What other advantages/disadvantages could you think of? Also when it comes to anonymous/secure email, what do you recommend? Thanks.
