The Amnesic Incognito Live System (Tails, for short), a Linux-based operating system purposed “to preserve your privacy and anonymity”, has left beta and is now available as version 1.0 (https://tails.boum.org/index.en.html). The operating system is best known for being the operating system of choice for users who seek out anonymity on the internet, such as Edward Snowden, the former contractor for the National Security Administration. Wired reports (http://www.wired.com/2014/04/tails/) that Snowden prefers this software, while the NSA sees this as a security threat, along with the anonymous browser Tor (http://www.theguardian.com/world/interactive/2013/oct/04/tor-stinks-nsa-presentation-document).

Using Tor as default browser must be slow as hell.

It's not too bad if you have a decent broadband connection.
