TAILS is a live system that aims to preserve your privacy and anonymity. It helps you to use the Internet anonymously and circumvent censorship almost anywhere you go and on any computer but leaving no trace unless you ask it to explicitly.

It is a complete operating system designed to be used from a DVD, USB stick, or SD card independently of the computer's original operating system. It is Free Software and based on Debian GNU/Linux.

Tails comes with several built-in applications pre-configured with security in mind: web browser, instant messaging client, email client, office suite, image and sound editor, etc. -

# Check first the about and warning pages to make sure that Tails is the right tool for you and that you understand well its limitations.

It can be downloaded here. There is plenty more info on the site, linked to above, giving details of the security enhancements and bug fixes over previous versions.

    In the subject line you say it uses TOR, in the body, you say it uses something else. I'm confused.

    "Additionally" leads me to suspect that No Respect was trying to say it uses both. Searching the web confirmed this. From Tails - I2P []:

    I2P has been included since Tails 0.7 with Iceweasel preconfigured using FoxyProxy so that eepsites (.i2p TLD) are directed to I2P. All other traffic gets routed through Tor.
