The Tor Browser lets you use Tor on Windows, OS X, or Linux without needing to install any software. It can run off a USB flash drive, comes with a pre-configured web browser to protect your anonymity, and is portable.
Tor Browser 6.0 is now available. Some of the improvements include:
- Code-signing for OS X systems is introduced. This should help users who had trouble with getting the Tor Browser to work on their Mac due to Gatekeeper interference.
- The release features new privacy enhancements and disables features potentially harmful in a Tor Browser context.
- SHA1 certificate support is disabled and the updater is not only relying on the signature alone, but is checking the hash of the downloaded update file as well before applying it.
- Version 6.0 provides a fix for a Windows installer related DLL hijacking vulnerability.
