Version : Orfox-Final-RIP
A must-have program for those, who care about the safety of their personal data, while working on the Internet.
Orfox is built upon Firefox browser, but contains a number of tools and modifications, designed to increase the privacy of the network. This browser does not keep a history of the visited sites and prevents operating system from saving the corresponding data.
The main feature of the program is encryption of traffic in the Tor network. It means, that it protects you by bouncing your communications around a distributed network of relays, run by volunteers all around the world. It prevents third parties from watching your Internet connection, from learning what sites you visit, and it prevents the sites you visit from learning your real location.
Moreover, the Orfox browser supports NoScript and HTTPSEverywhere extensions. They ensure a reliable protection of user's data on any sites and increase the speed of loading pages. Both extensions are enabled by default.
The program includes a full set of features, necessary for comfortable work on the Internet. It allows you to work with several tabs at once, add important pages to bookmarks and has a built-in download manager. By default, the program uses DuckDuckGo - confidential search engine. But, if necessary, it can be changed manually.
Please note, that Orfox requires Orbot app for Android to connect to the Tor network.
The app has been discontinued.
