Morning Joe: TOR May be Broken but Its Still Useful

TOR, unlike someone with higher powers wants you to believe is dead. In fact, a presentation you never heard about something that isn’t supposed to happen was pulled from devcon in Las Vegas just last week. However, TOR, not anonymous without improvement, is still a useful proxy server.

Consider how, every once in a while, I want to pull data from a site in a quick amount of time. I do not want to spend money on proxies since a client is only paying $50 per sheet of 10,000 to 20,000 records. The answer is TOR. Four to five proxies later with a decent timeout and I am acquiring data without paying $20 or more for proxies.

Tor may seem dead but long live TOR!
