1) Hi Whappo.
Tried TOR mid 2008. Slow. TOR claims it will get faster when more people use it and more people volunteer servers. If no other option I might try again, see if its improved.
You say auditmypc scan was way out in distance n post code but did it pick up your IP, Host Name/ net provider, line area code, search engine/ edition, computer o/s system etc ? with access to such details it would be easy for the goblins to infiltrate your computer.
2) Hi Jrexx.
Lot of controversy about Safari in April-June 2008 once available to windows. Apple-Mac people appear to have less problems with software and malware. Perhaps cause its market share is less than MS.
*Are you using Windows. ?
*Ever tested to find how effective Safari is in maintaining your anonymity ?
It would be very interesting to hear from you.
I'de be a lot wiser if I could remember all I've forgotten.
