Suppose all my sensitive traffic is handled over a https connection. Further assume, I've no interest in hiding which sites I visit just want to hide the sensitive contents. i.e. If an adversary knew the fact that I did a dns lookup for foobar.com that doesn't affect me.
Now is there any special advantage to using a VPN?
I mean there's a distinction between anonymity vs security right? If I want anonymity I might use something like tor.
If I want to access geo-restricted content (say) then I might see why I would use a VPN that makes my traffic seem to originate for a US IP even if I am located in (say) Saudi Arabia.
Or if I want to access legacy software that only works over the office intranet and it's rather simple to make it seem like my remote laptop is virtually within the office intranet than to go about modifying all legacy software individually.
But other than these use cases is there any fundamental benefit to using a VPN over just https?
