Tor Browser Bundle for Mac enables you to securely browse the Web while hiding your identity, proving to be an accessible, feature-rich option. Because of its dependency on the Tor network, however, it may feel sluggish at times.

Pros

Quick and easy install: Using Tor Browser Bundle for Mac turns out to be easier than running the separate client version. You just have to download an archive, extract the file, launch it, and that's it.

Tried and tested Tor network: This browser uses the Tor network, which, although not the fastest anonymity solution available, does work well. This app is still being developed further, but even in its current form feels reliable.

Control panel: Every essential feature can be quickly accessed through the Vidalia Control Panel, which enables you to stop Tor, configure relaying, view the network, use a new identity, and exit the application. You can also generate a bandwidth graph and see message logs.

Cons

Performance depends on the Tor network: This anonymity solution suffers from the slowness of the Tor network.

Configurations lost during updates: Don't expect to have your settings preserved after updating to a newer version. This can be frustrating, especially if you've spent a lot of time tweaking your settings.

Bottom Line

Free and dependable, Tor Browser Bundle for Mac can be a good option if you are searching for an application that can increase your Web browsing privacy. It's already the browser bundle, so you should no longer encounter problems with the installation process, as was the case with previous releases.
