"Downloads spam extensions onto my mac"

March 09, 2014  |  By steelsmith80

 |  Version: Tor Browser Bundle 3.5.2.1

Pros

tor is a benefit if you can look past all of the hijacking you'll deal with

Cons

each and every chrome profile has 4 extensions added to it and they took over my default browser. I consider this pretty shady.

Summary

not worth the shady, spammy issues you'll encounter. I'd consider a non-cnet download from now on

"What's downloading is v2.3.25-12, not 13"

Cons

What's downloading is v2.3.25-12, not 13

Summary

Not a perfect solution to anonymity. You have been warned. But it has lots of other great uses!

"Works the same as the old browser"

March 03, 2013  |  By Zandiman1

 |  Version: Tor Browser Bundle 2.3.25.4

Pros

I can't tell. As far as I can see it works exactly the same

Cons

Every time you update Tor, it loses all the settings, tabs and bookmarks you had in the previous version.

This is particularly annoying if you've put a lot of time in creating macros and scripts for your download client.

Since the Tor browser is essentially Firefox, it shouldn't be that hard for Tor to have the browser act like the regular Firefox and keep all of it's settings after the update.

"The link is for 32-bit Tor, but 64-bit also available!"

February 22, 2013  |  By zunipus

 |  Version: Tor Browser Bundle 2.3.25.4

Pros

The wonders of the Onion project, Vidalia, and the Tor network all running on Firefox. It is much simpler than it used to be...

Cons

...But this is still fundamentally geekware IMHO if you want to use much more than its anonymity features. The learning curve is kind of rocky.

Summary

NOTE: The 32-bit version is downloaded via the link here. HOWEVER! There is also a 64-bit version! You can choose which of the two versions to download HERE:

https://www.torproject.org/download/download-easy.html.en

There are a lot of terrific things you can do with Tor and the Tor community. Read read read and play play play to learn and figure it all out.

You still have to be careful out there because ratty types like to hang out anonymously too. Be safe at all times. Enjoy your natural right to PRIVACY. Don't let any bozos take it away. Not ever!

"***? Updated flash and still get an error message"

November 24, 2012  |  By JOMADSinCEBU

 |  Version: Tor Browser Bundle 2.2.39-5

Pros

Interface was fine.

Cons

All I got was an error message telling me to update Flash Player.

Summary

I'm a MAC user for several reason one of which I like when applications JUST WORK! If I wanted to spend time geeking around with an app I'd be a winblowz user.

Tried to view a youtube video not allowed in the 3rd world I'm in now. Tried this browser. A message telling me to update my Flash Player appeared. OK. Updated flash. Still no luck. What's the point?

"Tor works just great!"

July 10, 2012  |  By heidisman

 |  Version: Tor 2.2.37-1

Pros

It took me a while to find a way to hide my IP address and I finally 'discovered' the Tor Browser. I have been using Tor for about two months and it does exactly as detailed on the Tor website.

Cons

So far I have none.

"The Ultimate Proxy for Personal Privacy"

January 18, 2011  |  By zunipus

 |  Version: Tor 0.2.1.29

Pros

Tor is an Open Source project, independent of any political or oligarchic meddling. It works beautifully and restores faith in the human right of privacy. Once you understand what it's for, what it does and how to use it, it just works.

Cons

There is a steep learning curve if you want to understand Tor/Vidalia. It essentially is geekware, requiring patience with the accompanying difficult or missing documentation.

Summary

I learned about the Onion/Tor project via studying computer security and an interest in circumventing the deceitful "1984"-like political atmosphere developing in the USA over the last decade. I also wanted to circumvent ridiculous and abusive marketing blackouts around the world that prevent the sharing of information and media around the world. Tor/Vidalia is brilliant in solving these problems. Once you comprehend everything about it, I also found it remarkably easy to use.

However, getting to the point of comprehension is a very steep climb. If you can find someone who understands Tor to help you set it up for you to fulfill your purposes it makes things much easier. I did not and found it tough going, requiring all my supergeek powers of patience, research, curiosity and persistence. It has paid off grandly and I greatly admire the work of the people who have set up this software and the entire Tor network. Bravo.

If you value and demand your human right to personal privacy on the Internet, this is one of the primary and best tools in your arsenal. Put together with additional tools you can return to and maintain a state of anonymity, freely sharing among other Internet users any data you choose.

Stick with the learning curve and you'll find this terrific software indispensable and profoundly important.
