Tor looks and acts like a browser from 1999 — the ones where you could make a cup of tea in the time it took a GIF to load.
But it’s more than that (no one would put up with that level of inconvenience otherwise). Tor is a privacy protocol that can be used to browse the Internet while anonymous. The IP address linked to users by websites won’t be their own; instead, Tor assigns them a random IP address that they can change at any time.
