Hactivism group launches anonymous browser

Recommended Posts

A group of computer hackers and human rights workers have launched a specially-crafted version of Firefox that claims to give users complete anonymity when they surf the Web.

Dubbed "Torpark" and based on a portable version of Firefox, the browser will run from a USB drive, so it leaves no installation tracks on the PC. It protects the user's privacy by encrypting all in- and outbound data, and also anonymizes the connection by passing all data through the TOR network, which masks the true IP address of the machine.

Computer hackers and human rights workers?

I've heard of 'Torpark' before... the 'Tor' network was originally designed for the military, I think, and is very secure... but so many people running torrents and stuff through it that its super-slow.

Anyway, I wonder if a browser designed by 'hackers' is safe because they made it to hide themselves, or its just an insanely clever way of stealing data. :D
