    But if you log into a site over HTTP then anyone could see your login info. And last I heard too, you don't really want to do online banking over Tor

    It's great (and a bit weird) that Tor is almost becoming a household name compared to back in say 2007 or earlier. But I don't think these articles/people really get how to use it.

    edit
    Basically, I wouldn't pipe my entire internet connection-EVERYTHING that comes and goes from my computer over Tor, because not everything is encrypted.

    Right. Not if you want to keep the account usable, anyway ;)
    It's utterly amazing how many people have no clue about how many things. Or maybe it's not :(
    Even more importantly, not everything needs to be anonymized. And the more you do via Tor that leaks your true name in one way or another, the greater the risk that you'll compromise your anonymity. Indeed, it's a very bad idea to even mix anonymous and non-anonymous stuff on the same machine!

    It only takes a small amount of personal info for someone to find you these days on the Internet. Just don't reveal ANY personal info on your anonymous identity. People were able to identify Sabu based on the personal info he revealed.
