Comment (by cypherpunks):

 Curious, eh? That's good, but it will "eat" a cat :P

 Short answer: Because I want to use HTTP proxy.
 Long answer:
 I know many people who use TBB with HTTP proxy.
 Some of reasons:
 1. To take a complete log of requests.
 2. To filter out certain destination using their DNS servers(e.g., custom
 3. To share Tor access with other software that doesn't support SOCKS but
 4. More.

 We all understand this might reduce anomity. However, you should know that
 there are many, YES, MANY, people use Tor without Firefox! No, really,
 might bring you heart attack, but it's true.

 I have several legal websites hosting on .onion. According to my access
 40% of access use non-TBB browser, such as Firefox 64bit, iPhone,
 Safari, etc etc. I've kicked non-TBB user(return 301 <tbb download page>)
 after I saw that.

 Back to the primary discussion,
 when will you consider custom proxy? We just want to use our own
 to hide IP using Tor.
