Can I "port" the Tor network in order to use it through the whole system (updates, using in different browser, etc) ??

I'm using linux (Fedora 21 64 bit)

  • Guess not. Tor cannot anonymize UDP connections. Tails is an approach, but its way more than tor. – ManuelSchneid3r Jan 18 '15 at 13:58

Yes you can route all data through Tor, but is a Bad Idea.

Instead try Tails a live operating system, that you can start on almost any computer from a DVD, USB stick, or SD card. It aims at preserving your privacy and anonymity, and helps you to:

  • use the Internet anonymously and circumvent censorship; all connections to the Internet are forced to go through the Tor network;

  • leave no trace on the computer you are using unless you ask it explicitly; use state-of-the-art cryptographic tools to encrypt your files, emails and instant messaging.

The problem with routing all traffic through Tor is that the programs are not audited to run through Tor without leaking any information. The same applies to browsers that are not Tor Browser Bundle. You also end up using Tor bandwidth on unimportant things such as updates and what not.
