Project Tor Releases the Browser Manual

November 14, 2016

Tor Browser, the gateway to Dark Web has got its user manual that tells users a step-by-step procedure to download, install use and uninstall the browser in the most efficient manner.

On the official Tor blog titled Announcing the Tor Browser User Manual it says:

The community team is excited to announce the new Tor Browser User Manual! The manual is currently only available in English. We will be adding more languages in the near future, as well as adding the manual to Transifex.

Web users are increasingly adopting secure browsers like Tor that shields them from online tracking. With this manual, users who are not well-versed with Dark Web and want to access it or want to surf the web anonymously will get detailed instructions on doing so.

Some of the critical areas (apart from basic instructions like download and install) covered in the manual include – circumventing the network restrictions, managing identities, securely connecting to Tor, managing plugins, and troubleshooting most common problems.

The manual was created after taking feedback from various mailing lists and IRC forums, as the blog points out:

During the creation of this manual, community feedback was requested over various mailing lists / IRC channels. We understand that many people who read this blog are not part of these lists / channels, so we would like to request that if you find errors in the manual or have feedback about how it could be improved, please open a ticket on our bug tracker and set the component to “community”.

The manual will soon be released in other major languages that will benefit non-English speaking users. The aim is to foster growth and adoption of Tor, however, will only privacy-conscious users will be using the browser?
