Advanced Onion Router

25November2013

It was a little more than a/1 year ago when I first started messing around with Tor.
My first Tor "toys" were the xB Browser (which I no longer need/use) and the Advanced Onion Router (AdvOR) ...
which (at the time) was (very) buggy, crash-prone and not (very) functional at all ...

I prefer to access some "social networking sites" (e.g., FaceBook & others) via Tor ... to avoid being "GeoLocated" ...
There is a/1 site that I initially could access via my local Tor.exe configuration; however,
"the site" seemingly "did something" to block my site access via my local Tor.exe configuration.
This past weekend I tried accessing that site via Tor.exe with a different browser ...
that succeeded ... initially ... then "the site" seemingly (again) "did something" to block my site access via Tor ...

So, I decided to try (the latest - from April 2013) AdvOR again ... WOW ... now AdvOR seems stable & functional!
... replete with MANY (very) USEFUL features ... e.g., mask the browser, mask the OS & etc ...
I have been using AdvOR (with various configs) to access "that site" ...

I'm not (yet) sure (at all) of the myriad ways to configure/use AdvOR ...
Maybe we might explore them in this forum thread ... ???

Advanced Onion Router pushes you to use your default browser when accessing Tor network. Needless to say this is bad idea.

Security means ISOLATION. Tor Browser Bundle isolates web-browser. Whonix isolates the whole OS. And AdvOR isolates only socket service, the rest you should do by yourself. It's like using your personal laptop in some occasional place with public wi-fi: IP-address is different, but the rest (useragent, cookies, active sessions, plugins, cache ...) reveals you completely.

"TOR Hacker"
I am not sure the "gist" of the previous post is correct ...
As far as I can tell, AdvOR allows configuring to randomize
not only the (supposed) browser in use also the (supposed) OS in use ...

I have AdvOR set to randomize the browser & OS and have found this to be completely effective masking.
It is also possible to test the (supposed) browser & OS when using AdvOR by visiting┬╗ geowai.net
