Stay Off My Lawn! Browse securely and Anonymously under Linux with Tor Browser

With news that dropbox will be joing the PRISM project soon, it’s high time you get on the Tor Browser, if you are not already on a VPN/Proxy service, and this could even supplement that.  It is surprisingly easy to use, with packages available for almost all package managers (listed below).  

The site contains tutorials to answer all your questions, so don’t be afraid to jump right in.  It’s your information on the line!  The project aims to protect you by bouncing your communications around a very large distributed network or relays run by thousands of volunteers from all over the world.  Thankfully, it is also multi-platform.  What is awesome, is it can also run off a USB drive, which further extends it portability.   Also, be on lookout in the coming week for a privacy post on how to use GPG keys to further help protect your arse.
