We all many times use proxies for staying anonymous on internet. Lets quickly check out , what we are actually doing while using proxies. We first connect to a proxy server which brings resources requested by us from the web server.
servers for being anonymous online. Here comes the concept of THE ONION ROUTING (TOR) into picture. By using this , the client traffic is supposed to be passed from three different servers or nodes before reaching to actual web server. It may randomly take any path through any three nodes.
* Node 1 knows only actual origin(client) but not actual destinantion(web server).
*Node 5 neither knows actual origin nor actual destinantion.
*Node 9 knows actual destination but not actual origin.
Thus no one exactly knows which client is accessing which web server. So it is highly anonymous.
Installing and Using TOR:

Note: You need to install a Mozilla firefox add on which is included in package you have downloaded to use Tor.
Control Panel' from the task bar and Click on 'Start Tor'.
