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.

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!

And the creation/modification date is mucked-up as well -- reports the year 2000. Attention to detail, please, developers!

The 32-bit version will work on your 64-bit OS just fine.

We will update our website when the 64-bit versions are ready.

Dev, you really need to mention that on the download page. I wasted a lot of time searching in vain through your website to find out WTF happened to 64-bit versions for Mac and Windows.

For all I knew, the project was discontinued for some reason.

O_o

I finally stumbled upon your reply here after quite a needless waste of time. Please save others the hassle and put info on the Mac and Windows download page about the future availability of the 64-bit versions.

Waaaaayyyyy to slow to be of any practical use. I appreciate the Tor community but I'd be willing to pay to get access to speeds comparable to VPN services. I'll keep rocking PrivateInternetAcess secure VPN service. There's still no evidence the NSA has been able to compromise OpenVPN.

Yes, it can be a bit slow, but not so slow that it doesn't have some practical use. Of course, this depends on what your use is. For general web surfing -- yes, it is too slow.

So trusting a third party to delete their logs containing your detailed history is better than a service where you can control your connection? Exit node etc... might even be setup by you, reviewing source before, during, etc... so that nobody you are in control, not a company running openvpn for you. They could screw up the setup and be leaking your info or purposefully be gathering your info to line their pockets... paranoid or business on the web as usual? People/advertisers/governments/anyone wishes and had has the means to buy your vpn habits will be very happy to buy that which you are going at lengths to hide because if your hiding the info, it must be useful to someone, worth t least the vpn price to you, most likely others you are in contact with too. Run a Tor relay and your traffic is mixed in with random activities of users all over the world connecting to TOR. Hard to prove you specifically did anything when you won't even be seen as a target due to the other traffic, go a step further and obfuscate your connection to appear that much more bland and harmless, coupled with you controlling the data and where it is headed, who else is sharing the ip addresses and then yu can even go ahead and run your own openvpn server in a a non-US friendly/cooperating country since you mentioend the NSA's cracking ability, which by the way, they can get if they need or want and you nor I would have a single clue of their capabilities or the time wasted since your mac is already sending the info to them directly! Last part was a it far but if you are concerned about speed I doubt you need anything "secure" as security/privacy are not the same but hopefully do not take a backseat to expedient results/use.

Sorry for the long one, I don't know much about TOR or openvpn's but i know that I do not want my provider having offices in the country I am attempting toconceal activities from and why does their name have "London" in it if located in the US? Do they not see or care about the special relationship and power shared by both countries. That one is confusing, where servers are doesn't matter as much when they owners can be arrested, their property and funds seized and frozen until cooperation or trial takes place. I think they would rather you be wearing orange for your own activities than taking hits of any kind for you. Bad for business when your out of business.

soixante-neuf had trouble on 25 Nov 2012
I recently was at an adult web site with Tor enabled and got a notice that some gal in my town (it actually named the town that I live in) wanted to chat with me.
I if Tor is really working as it's supposed to, how and why was my town's name identified?
What assurance do I or anyone actually have that Tor really allows anomymous web site use?
Does Tor really work as advertised?

I need a little help with Tor. I was enjoying it but suddenly it quit on me and I can't get it back. I am using 10.8.2 so I switched to my Snow Leopard Mac. It did the same. Vidalia stays on but Tor is gone. I really like this browser and I would like it back.
