Using the TOR Network to Stay Anonymous Online

In an article post from Tech Gurus’ Moyo Ogunjale, where he discusses the issue of searching the deep web or hidden web, he goes into some detail on how to use the TOR Network not only to search for the hidden web, to to communicate anonymously online.

The TOR network stands for The Onion Router, and is named presumably because as you peel back the layers looking for the identity of the user, you just get another layer.  The system works by bouncing your connection of a series of randomly assigned routers that use an encrypted connection to keep your session private and untraceable.

Check this out if you are doing any kind of online research where preserving your anonymity would be important.
