Does anybody use scotty? Is this for anonymous browsing? What's the main
difference between VPN and Tor?

Judging from their documentation, it's not an anonymous browsing
system, it's a proxy filtering bypass system. It tunnels your requests
in a surreptitious manner across your filtered proxy to an endpoint
that allows you to browse freely. It's not untraceable to you, as you
have to set up the endpoint someplace and there will be logs on proxy
side as well that you accessed the endpoint.
