I trust torsocks more, not because it has tor in its name, but because
Jake is working or has worked on it. But torsocks 2 makes youtube-dl get
out of memory and swap too.

proxychains4 is something I just found out. It works well. It was built
for something else, although it can be used only for tor too. It is more
complex and that is usually not a good thing. And there is no -i switch
to generate a user/password pair.

What can you tell me about these two apps? Can I trust proxychains4 not
to leak data?
