Mozilla considers integrating Tor with Super Private Mode

Currently, most popular browsers already offer users a private browsing mode, where their identity will be better protected, and the history of their personal sessions will not be transferred to regular browsing sessions. However, are these private modes safe enough?

Obviously, there is no and so much so that Mozilla is now exploring the possibility of introducing a “super private viewing” mode in future versions of Firefox. How does it work? The company will integrate the ability to connect via Tor to Firefox, in which all your Internet traffic will be redirected and encrypted on Tor servers.

According to Mozilla, the normal private mode still sends your traffic through the servers of your ISP or the servers of the company you work for, which means that it is not as private as you think. It also does not protect users from malicious programs, such as keyloggers or other spyware, from which, according to Mozilla, you can protect yourself by incorporating a Tor connection into your Firefox browser.

The disadvantage of this method is that routing traffic through Tor can result in poor performance, such as page load time. That is why Mozilla is exploring an idea to see if it can be done without much degradation of performance. Whether the experience will be successful or not is still unknown, but there seems to be a lot of potential in the idea.
