    That's what i get for being curious. I downloaded the Tor browser, and it took over ALL my net access. No matter what Browser I use, it takes over! I've learned my lesson. A warning.. Stay away from the Dark net, Under net and the free net... I'm recovering with a Ghost a month ago. Don't My mistake...

    The Tor browser isn't the dark net. Sounds like you downloaded and installed something else.

    I agree with Tony. I have the Tor browser installed and use it occasionally when I want a different view to that supplied by FF or IE.

    I beg to differ gentlemen. Here's some information for you to get acquainted with Tor and the The Darknet Tor is the software that is needed to gain access to that network of personal servers around the world.

    I'm not going to click on a link I don't know. Tor Browser can be used to access illegal sites. But it doesn't install anything additional that makes a link or causes issues.

    I put the link there for information sake. If you want to sit in your own ignorance, that's your choice....

    Wow. Harsh. I've used TOR before. It's not evil. It's mostly just slow. I think you or someone who uses your computer went somewhere they shouldn't have.

    Has Lance1's account been hijacked? I didn't expect a member of over ten years and with so many posts to spew such nonsense.
