    Anyone familiar with the Linux KDE application application known as Tork which is the best Tor controller I have seen. Its latest release is 0.31 and can be downloaded from the project web site at SourceForge Tork: Anonymity Manager for KDE. It can be compiled in a KDE 4.1.2 environment.

    It allows you to switch identities, i.e. change the Tor hop circuits, uses a pipelined proxy for performance, and and is even available as part of the Incognito Live CD which although a new beta release is available, the official release has not been updated since 5 August 2008.

    Check both releases out! Comments on other Tor Anonymity Managers (if known) requested. Tork may work only w/hardware routers, and appears to need uPnP (in router) enabled to work.
