Privacy and VPNs

It’s a slow day at work and I was picking through some videos and found the one regarding tor. I must admit that I am not familiar with tor but I do have a pretty good understanding of VPNs. Based on my limited knowledge of Tor, I am guessing that using a VPN and proxies would increase your chances of staying cloaked. Am I right, or did I miss something? Would it be worth it to set tor as a default browser on all machines?

TOR is really really slow therefore not great for everyday browsing and many sites use IP based blocks from attacks and with attacks originating from TOR nodes that can create some issues.
