In this new publication we will focus on the news, since in previous ones we have talked in detail about Tor Browser as an app. But, as usual, we will include a small but useful excerpt on what is the same, using one of our previous related posts.

What is Tor Browser?

The Tor Browser Web Browser is:

"Free software and an open network that helps defend against traffic analytics, a form of network surveillance that threatens personal freedom and privacy, confidential business activities and relationships, and state security".

In addition, it is worth noting about it that:

"Certainly all the Tor Browser technology can be used separately in a GNU / Linux Operating System, through the graphical manager called Vidalia on a compatible Internet browser (such as Mozilla Firefox) with Torbutton (Complement / Plugin) that allows us to activate it from the own browser."

And clarifying that:

"However, in the Tor Browser Web Browser, its creators have managed to simplify everything, designing a solid and robust application (package) in a comprehensive way, that is, with everything necessary to work immediately in any distribution. And using the best and most recent versions of Mozilla Firefox, in order to take advantage of the technical facilities of one of the best Web Browsers in the Free World."
