The Secret Web
I read the article in Time Mag about the secret web and its high level of privacy in surfing. I went to the Tor Project site and downloaded their software and browser package. I have started to experiment with it. Does Woody and company of experts have any idea how safe this secret web is and what are the ptifalls?

The technology behind Tor is pretty good and I think it was developed by some lab from the US Navy. Every technology has its downsides and here it seems the NSA has managed to hack into some of the nodes that are part of the network and thus compromise the privacy that it offers. So, nothing is absolute, regarding security, but Tor is good technology.Rui
