Abhi not at all. TOR was created by the US Navy as a secure method of communicating, and over the years, this was adopted by a variety of organisations (some more nefarious than others) to further enhance the security of their communications. These days, people tend to associate TOR with underground and illegal activity, but seen to side step the fact that journalists used this network for years as a means of remaining anonymous in their research.
The TOR browser is still the go-to platform (essentially a hardened version of Firefox) for those who truly want anonymity when browsing the internet. The real issue with TOR is that it can be outrageously slow friending in your usage pattern, and what exit node you are connected to. With several known fake exit nodes in existence, TOR isn't as private as it used to be. For example, a poorly configured exit node could expose detail of your session without you being aware.
