    When UltraSurf loses connection or crashes it prevents your browser to access the Internet. Vidalia and TOR does not have this feature by default. Any solution for that?

    If you set a proxy in your browser for all kinds of traffic and then the proxy is routed through TOR, then if TOR is closed, you will not be able to connect to the internet with that browser. I'm not sure if Vidalia sets this up correctly, because I always do it manually :)

    Use Whonix. It doesn't leak.

    Actually, solved!

    I use AdvTOR with Chrome (Iron, really) and force it to go through TOR.
    Iron.exe --no-referrers --proxy-server=127.0.0.1:9050

    If connection is lost, browser doesn't leak.

    It will be OK, isn't it?
