    When TOR is used your ISP is fully aware that you are connecting to TOR, have any methods been implemented that mask it as another type of traffic? Or is there any way of preventing your ISP from knowing that your using TOR?

    I was reading the other post about it masking TOR traffic as skype and this got my curious on the subject.

    I connect to my ISP through another browser to make the connection more confusing.

    Would you mind clarifying what you mean by that? Do you mean you open 2 browsers, one via TOR and one via your true IP? If I misunderstood you I apologize in advance.

    Always use TOR thru VPN. Because TOR has some DNS leak based on some personal tests.

    Here's my anonymous network schematics:
    Base connection > VPN 1 > VM VPN 2 > TOR > optional browser proxy
