Tor: anonymous Internet, but not for file-sharing

Wired News: Tor Torches Online Tracking:

Tor's encryption system slows down data-transfer rates for large files typically traded over peer-to-peer networks, according to Dingledine.

'We suspect they wouldn't be very happy with Tor because it slows down when you're transferring really large files,' he said. 'We can imagine a time one day when Tor is so large we can imagine a lot of people moving a lot of bytes around. But that's not the most pressing design problem we have to worry about right now ... and this isn't really the spin we're looking for. We're looking for helping human rights people and corporations and individuals get privacy and safety on the internet.'
