Now I can say I've tried it

I gave Tor spin tonight. Not so much because I'm ultra-paranoid about my anonymity online, but just as an occasional extra layer of protection to use when I'm on a network I don't fully trust.

Setup was a snap with the Windows installer and Firefox extension. Only took about 3 minutes. Unfortunately, I had to give up on it. My web browsing speed was cut by at least 50%, and it seemed to really mess with some of my website logins.

I've uninstalled, and have abandoned any notions of using it regularly. But like I said, I'll keep it in mind when I'm dropped on a foreign network and want that extra bit of security.
