Tor seems to have found the best all round use, easy to set up and use system of pretty good privacy. Always a cat and mouse game. As the article says they will continue to evolve and move with the times/threats but Tor could also be the MySpace that comes before the Facebook everyone uses. I guess the ultimate goal is untractability without the performance hit.
