Topic: Tor Browser or IceCat w/SOCKS proxy?
I read somewhere here that I can use GNU IceCat (or whatever browser Hyperbola uses) to access Tor via a SOCKS proxy.
Although I haven't used Tor much, I do remember reading that the Tor Browser is supposed to be more secure because it is configured in a certain way so that most, if not all, Tor browser users have the same level of entropy so that ISPs and other parties find it hard to track down particular users. How is IceCat configured in comparison?
Also, doesn't the Tor Browser allow you to make your Tor connections by jumping between different Tor nodes every time by the click of a button? What does simply entering the SOCKS proxy in your IceCat settings do as opposed to that?
However, I do remember reading from an article on Hongfire (Unfortunately shut down) that using the Tor Browser bundle has some security risks due to some coding flaw, if I'm correct. But then again, it was an old article and said flaws could've been patched up since then.
Should Tor Browser be used in Hyperbola at all?
What are your thoughts anyone?
