Version: Advanced Onion Router 0.3.0.10
This uses the Tor network to help you surf the web anonymously using Tor proxies. This program makes setting the network far easier than in Tor itself because there are far more options and its quite easy to configure the basics. It works well so far with Chrome browser and you can add programs to force them to use the Tor network by drag and drop as well as other options if you need to.
Like all Tor connections this will slow down your browser a little though its ok for general browsing. Not good for viewing videos though or using a Torrent client or anything that needs a fast connection. I found that to end a Tor connection I had to both manually change back my browser proxy settings and then close Onion Router completely. I found that even then I had to occasionally reboot.
A good alternative to Tor or Vidalia bundle but still needs some work to improve its ability to open/close a Tor network with ease. A help file would also be useful as would the ability to speed up connections.
