Overview

The Tor Browser Bundle is an easy-to-use portable package of Tor, Vidalia, Torbutton, and a Firefox fork preconfigured to work together out of the box. It contains a modified copy of Firefox that aims to resolve the privacy and security issues in mainline version.

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, journalists, law-enforcement officers, activists, and many others.

I spend most summers working in mainland China. Tor was invaluable to me for circumventing the Great Firewall. I used it as part of Vidalia ( http://vidalia-project.net/ ) and found it to be THE best way to access blocked sites from within China. I also tried using HamachiX as a way to use my server in the U.S. for a VPN. The authorities caught on very quickly and within 2 days had blocked my access. Tor, however, was never spotted and I used it over a 2 month period. Go Tor!

There's a MAJOR security flaw in versions previous to 8.0.3. So be sure to UPDATE! "Tor Browser Has a Flaw That Governments May Have Exploited" https://www.pcmag.com/news/363656/tor-browser-has-a-flaw-that-governments-may-have-exploited ***Don't take Tor Browser security for granted. It has been regularly hacked and is NOT perfect security protection on the Internet. It's BETTER security on the Internet, with of course a cost of speed depending upon what you're doing. [IOW: It is not heresy to point out that Tor Browser can be insecure. Zealots: Deal with it. Stop pretending.]

How, pray tell, is it "the best"? What makes it so? https? Tor, Vidalia, Torbutton, and a Firefox fork? Like in the description? What?

If you're running into a version 7.0.7 bug that stalls and times out the opening of the installer, you are not alone. The workaround is to update Tor Browser from within the application. Go to the menu bar, click on "Tor Browser" then "About Tor Browser". The app should immediately start downloading and updating itself to version 7.0.7, successfully.

Version 7.0.8 has the same stall bug when you attempt to open the installer DMG. Again, update from inside TorBrowser itself.

"The following disk images couldn't be opened

TorBrowser-7.0.8-osx64_en-US.dmg - - Operation timed out"

Today's 7.0.7 update appears on MacUpdate, yet the link on the TOR site is still for 7.0.6. The new version does download from <https://www.torproject.org/dist/torbrowser/7.0.7/TorBrowser-7.0.7-osx64_en-US.dmg> BUT, it reports TOR is out of date, and checking for updates returns No Update Available!

Really, this is not the order in which to release an update. Get it working on your OWN website before a third-party site publishes its release. Whose snafu is this?

You sure about that version number MacUpdate? Because the latest version on the Tor website is 7.0.5. https://goo.gl/MAATW

That's a bit unusual - for a dev. to be behind on their own versions.
And not just any developer, but one with a large team behind it.

Oh well, stranger things have happened...

I've been running the experimental 7.5 versions since at least June, and am now on 7.5a4.

They did it again today. Again, why would the developer release the update through MacUpdate (of all places) before replacing the version on their own site? And why does the new version report itself as being out-of-date with no updates available? This is not the way to do things.
