Step by Step How to Install Tor Browser for Linux Mint – Tor Browser can be used to bypass or unblock any restricted website for your IP or for your country. Tor Browser Bundle is a web browser based on Firefox ESR (Firefox with extended support), configured to protect users’ privacy and anonymity by using Tor and Vidalia, tools that come bundled with it. The bundle also includes 4 Firefox extensions: TorButton, TorLauncher, NoScript and HTTPS-Everywhere.
How Tor Browser Works ?
When launching your TorBrowser, it automatically starts the bundled Tor, anonymizing the origin of your traffic and encrypting everything inside the Tor network. Because the traffic between the Tor network and its final destination is not encrypted, Tor Browser ships with HTTPS-Everywhere, an extension produced as a collaboration between The Tor Project and the Electronic Frontier Foundation that encrypts your communications with many major websites, making your browsing more secure.
Once you close TorBrowser, the list of visited websites and the cookies are deleted.
Tor Browser Bundle is easy to run on Linux, and Tor Browser Bundle runs from a single folder where it creates temporary files, also with the script I mentioned, Tor Browser can automatically install (or update) it self if you are not change any configuration of Tor.
