Probably a complete noobie question.

I'm running TOR browser 7.5. The browsers states

Congratulations. This browser is configured to use Tor. Your IP address appears to be: xx.xx.43.164

But when I go to IP4.ME it states

You are connecting with an IPv4 Address of: yy.yy.78.21

Why the difference?

Tor Browser uses a different circuit for each domain (essentially "website") you visit.

If you read somewhere that "Tor (Browser) uses a new circuit every 10 minutes", that is a statement so oversimplified that it is incorrect.
