    Has got me curious. Just downloaded it. The "no install" is nice. Everything scanned clean. Going to give it a try now. I shall return, maybe. :D ;)

    :D No onions here. LOL Seems to work well with one exception. It will not run in Sandboxie for me. Get a memory read error. Will delve into that later. Have loaded several of my favorite extensions and 1 skin, all work. Fasterfox seems to off-set a bit of the lag that that a Tor type set up normally creates however initial start up is a bit slower. I guess that is to be expected as the hops are made for the needed connections. It also requires servers rights for Tor and closed. To be expected I would think. The connections do drop as soon as it is closed. The memory leak seems absent. Torpark.exe = 12,976, tor.exe = 10,556K, and firefox.exe at 36,760K. It will not become my every day browser but I think I`ll keep it around.

    What do you mean by "and closed"?

    This looks like an easy way to try out TOR.

    Thanks for trying it out and letting us know ThunderZ!

    hmmmmmm....not sure what I ment. :oops: Must have been in a hurry and lost my train of thought. A couple of other strange things over the last couple of days. 1) On my Wife`s PC it crashes ZA Pro when attempting to use it for downloads. 2) On my PC ZA Pro alerted me to it trying to send e mail. :cautious: Have removed it from her machine and will probably do the same on mine.......strange behaviour to say the least. :rolleyes:

    It is for sure starting to smell a bit fishie to say the least. :p It may just be the mirror site I got it from, or......... The Mrs. d\l`ed hers from a different mirror. Have not played with it recently. Have to work this morning so later today I may give it another try. Just seems strange that it behaved a bit different on two different machines. (then again maybe not) On hers it never asked for servers rights or tryed to send e mail. On mine it did not crash the same ver. of ZA Pro. o_O Both d\l`s scanned clean, as well as both PC`s. :blink:

    Mis-print in the article - The line

    should be

    I would rather just instal Tor and Firefox separately which has the same effect, with the added benefit that the source code has been peer-reviewed by many people. ;)
