Tor is an online anonymity browser, it will route your traffic through a series of volunteer servers so that it sits like a many layered shield between you and the rest of the web. It is a well known and trustworthy peice of software, interestingly it was originally developed by the US navy, then taken over by a charity/volunteer organisation/privacy group when the us navy remembered that they could not be anonymous alone, they opened tor up to the largest possible audience so the military personnel who use it for secret communications can be protected by having so many other users around them. It will hide your ip from sites you visit and is free to use. It is ofcourse like any anoymity tool not perfect anonymity and privacy(nothing can be), it isn't a security (as in protect you from viruses and hackers) tool either, just an anonymity and privacy tool. And don't ever think anonymity is good reason to be unpleasant, you might hide yourself but you should still treat others with respect.
Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.

That said, if you don't want to struggle through the incredibly slow onion and just access ordinary www sites you can use a VPN.

 

Some are free, others are paid.... you get what you pay for mostly.

a quick note, tor is not that slow, it is obviously slower than normal browsing but i have experienced it to be easily fast enough to be practically usable. It's key issue though is that many sites(including most forums) won't allow account creation/login from tor servers for obvious reasons.
