It makes sense in a backwards sort of way. Last year’s NSA revelations scared people into seeking more privacy online, and so they turned to Tor, the anonymous web browser.
Then, we learned that the NSA is actually targeting people that use Tor, sending users running in the opposite direction. Understandably, this has Tor worried.
In an interview with The Guardian, Tor’s chief executive Andrew Lewman expressed some of his concerns about the internet in the post-Snowden era. Lewman basically told the paper that Tor is struggling to scale and suggests that spy agencies are part of the problem.
