Subject description: better anonimity if using DNS through Tor

In case you are not routing all your network traffic through Tor, you can still use Tor DNS to resolve your IP address look-ups.

For most cases it’s your ISP which proves you a DNS name resolver. However, that also means that the ISP has your digital fingerprints, i.e., exactly where you are roaming on the interent. To bypass that, you can use open DNS servers like that of Google and OpenDNS. However, Tor provides better anonymity even in this respect.

To resolve DNS through Tor, you need to install dnsmasq, then a step-by-step tutorial is provided.
