Default The Deep Web, TOR, .onion, HTTPS Everywhere, & I2P

I came across these articles the other day, all relating to safe guarding privacy & online security.

I already use AdBlock Plus, NoScript, Ghostery, & WOT (Web of Trust), add-ons for Firefox along with KIS 2011, Malware Bytes Anti-Malware, Spyware Blaster, & SUPERAntiSpyware. So I thought my laptop was about as secure as I could make it, from Viruses, Malware, Spyware, Banners, Spam, Ad's, Online JavaScript & cookie trackers Etc.

https://www.torproject.org/index.html.en

http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread664550/pg1

https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/.onion

Then I read about TOR project, and have been using it with success for about 5 days now. I've yet to try & access anything within the deepweb that is not indexed by Google ( .onion sites), & to be honest I doubt there is anything there of interest to me, but TOR does allow me to browse in complete privacy, so my ISP cannot tell that I'm on the pirate bay, or record that I have been there, or any other website, via their Traffic Management & as my IP is completely hidden / changed, I am less vunerable to hackers right? It is slower than normal browsing for obvious reasons.
There is also a .onion version of the search engine DuckDuckGo that does not collect or share personal information.

https://duckduckgo.com/privacy.html

I've also been trying out HTTPS Everywhere add-on for firefox,

https://www.eff.org/https-everywhere

for the following reason,

https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2010/1...ites-implement

Does anyone use TOR, DuckDuckGo, or HTTPS everywhere? What do you think of them? Are there any issues with TOR, other than speed?

Also does anyone use I2P or Peerblock / PeerGuardian for torrent clients? What do you think of them? - I'm thinking of trying I2P out.

Whilst I can't talk with much informed knowledge on TOR. I will say that I2P and PeerBlock/PeerGuardian are a complete waste of time.

TOR is a great idea as long as you're not doing anything requiring login details.

Ok, I am really surprised that there has only been two replies, has no-one else heard of TOR, or HTTPS everywhere add-on for firefox.

Anyway, I came across this tonight, via this interesting site,

http://cryptome.org/

about TOR -

https://eta.securesslhost.net/~pgpboar/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=415&p=587&sid=3ce4e2bc13a6e12e 15f6a5fc239958ed#p587

I don't think I'll be using TOR, I tried it for a few days, just for browsing, nothing secure, but it was kinda slow. But am def gonna keep using HTTPS everywhere.

You have got a point there, it just seemed like a good idea. The main reason was the story leaked that Virgin media monitiors 40% of it's customers web traffic. I know that all ISP's keep a log for 1 year of every click you make, & have to by law, but the whole virgin thing seemed like overkill too. BT got into big trouble with EU privacy laws when they tried to do that 3 years ago, but Virgin seem to have gotten away with it. It may only be the customers who are stupid enough to install the Virgin Media hub & free Anti-Virus package, who are monitiored.
