The Onion Router- How It Works

"Individuals use Tor to keep websites from tracking them and their family members, or to connect to news sites, instant messaging services, or the like when these are blocked by their local Internet providers. Tor's hidden services let users publish web sites and other services without needing to reveal the location of the site. Individuals also use Tor for socially sensitive communication: chat rooms and web forums for rape and abuse survivors, or people with illnesses."

Why yes, reading Little Brother has gotten me more than a little paranoid. :)

Couple TOR with Firefox Portable, and you should be pretty well off for privacy. For now.
