I know that Tor introduced options for setting up a non-anonymous hidden service, Cloudflare hidden resolver is an example of a non-anonymous one.

I built a Tor binary to use 2 hops circuits for browsing speed, will it use 2 hops circuit to connect to non-anonymous hidden services or will it use 3 hops?

The connections are made, so the ones you're asking about will be just made in the very same way. Reducing hop length rips off your anonymity, you must know...

  • This is exactly what I do, I have Tor executables for making 2 hops connections for Linux and Windows. I use them for things that don't need a great level of anonymity such as casual browsing. Commented Aug 29, 2023 at 19:38
