    For those that want to play with anonymous browsing using FF, TOR and a USB stick, (It doesn't have to be on a stick)

    Torpark Enhanced

    October 6th, 2006 Posted by D Webber
    Just a quick update: I’ve made a few updates to my previous post on the Torpark "anonymous" browser. This is now a more detailed review of the product.
    Also to save time and effort for those interested, I’ve put all the changes recommended in that post together into a self-extracting archive called "Torpark Enhanced":
    This is the Topark self-extracting archive from the official Torpark site with the following changes:
    • Set the Torpark start page to blank.
    • Unchecked firefox setting "Allow cookies".
    • Enabled the included NoScript extension to block Javascript, Java, flash and other plugins. You can selectively enable these on a site-by-site basis in the settings of the extension.
    • Installed the Modify headers extension and configured it to change HTTP_USER_AGENT to Opera 9.0 on a Macintosh ("Opera/9.0 (Macintosh; PPC Mac OS X; U; en)")
    • Installed the RefControl extension and configured the default action to "FORGE: send root of this site". You can selectively customize this on a site-by-site basis using the settings of the extension.
    These changes make the Torpark browser much more effective at protecting privacy. No warranties though… use at your own risk.



    [​IMG] Welcome to the official Torpark homepage. Download Torpark and put it on a USB Flash keychain. Plug it into any internet terminal whether at home, school, or public. Run Torpark.exe and it will launch a Tor circuit connection, which creates an encrypted tunnel from your computer indirectly to a Tor exit computer, allowing you to surf the internet anonymously. How much does Torpark cost? IT'S FREE.
    You may have heard about those heavily advertised second-rate software packages like Anonymizer, SafeSharing, InvisibleIP, SecretSurfer, etc. Well, not only do they charge you money and/or a subscription fee, but they are bloated and full of useless components. They also require an installation which leaves tracks on your computer. How is that anonymous? Try Torpark; its small, portable, clean, open-source, free of spyware/adware, and free.
