Tor was originally designed, implemented, and deployed as a third-generation onion routing project of the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory. It was originally developed with the U.S. Navy in mind, for the primary purpose of protecting government communications. Today, it is used every day for a wide variety of purposes by normal people, the military, more...

Privacy is a huge issue. Snooping around happens everywhere, everyday. What can we do? We can use TOR. Based on FF, TOR is fantastic at what it does- providing anonymity. With servers all over the world, TOR randomly keeps changing my location more...

Use Tor, paint a target on your back... http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-28162273
Not that this should be surprising, really.

By simply coming to this MacUpdate page and reading your post, the NSA is gonna list people. And, by posting your post, you're on the list too. Observe:


In other words, it's time to out the corrupt NSA. It's time for more whistleblowers to do the patriotic thing, come forward and expose this farce upon our republic and outright, blatant attack upon our U.S. Constitution.


I would be shocked if the NSA didn't administer a significant portion of Tor servers.

Current version is 3.6.2, available at the tor project website:

Tor Browser is based on Firefox ESR, so it's a rock solid platform, user friendly, but like using an older version of Firefox. Installation is drag and drop. Launch it and you're already browsing anonymously. It just works.

It's a bit slow, but that's the nature of the Tor network.

Someone is up-voting TrueCrypt and Cryptix.

Cryptix is closed source and close source crypto is really hard to be trusted. I wouldn't!

TrueCrypt just shut down operations saying it was unsecure to be used:
http://truecrypt.sourceforge.net/ says
"WARNING: Using TrueCrypt is not secure as it may contain unfixed security issues."

Combine those two and that makes me really think if we have a person on someone's payroll upvoting unsecure software. Hard to proove but the pattern behind this is really strange.

Same applies for the GPG Suite page:

Again TrueCrypt (unsecure) and Cryptix (can not be trusted and seems to use weak security) are up-voted.

Macupdate should really reconsider the entire voting system for similar software.

When it comes to security related software this is no fun and can endanger peoples lifes if they use unsecure software.

I recommend using Tor / GPG Suite, please refrain from using untested closed source software which you cannot trust.

Not that I disagree with your assertions about TrueCrypt or Cryptix but TOR is a way to privatize your internet browsing, and really nothing to do with disk encryption.

So I'm a bit confused by your statements here comparing the 'two'.

PS I do rate TOR (for what it does at 4 stars, leaving one off for it's speed. It could be faster.

Tor is slower than a snail on valium.

The browser or the network it uses?

As a non-Admin user, I can't use this version. I'll have to stick with the older one until the issue with Maverics gatekeeper is fixed. I'd give it at least 4 stars otherwise.

Then do not rate until you can use it.


This version fixed the problem with the Maverics gatekeeper for a non-admin user. I give it 4 stars now. It works well, and isn't noticeably slow.


You want anonymizer software to work for non-admin users?

Seems like an odd request to warrant a half-star rating.

For me privacy is important and TOR is exactly what I need and use most. Although the older TOR clients did perform badly, the latest updates are really fast and very usable. Sheers for that!

Thank you for keeping this free.

I like Tor Browser Bundle because it is so accessible, easy to use. I was browsing around with TBB just now and thought I'd access my Yahoo mail. I got an email immediately from Yahoo security, saying that my account had been accessed "from an unknown device" somewhere in France. Funny. I'm definitely not in France.

Privacy is a huge issue. Snooping around happens everywhere, everyday. What can we do? We can use TOR. Based on FF, TOR is fantastic at what it does- providing anonymity. With servers all over the world, TOR randomly keeps changing my location worldwide. Once if its Romania, the next time its Greece! It has far more reachability than HMA or any other web proxy programs. The only problem I have with it is that we don't get to choose the place and also that it skips servers sometimes when we are in the middle of something! And also I'm concerned about how safe it actually is, after what happened last year. Hope TOR isn't compromised. Long live anonymity!
