New Release: Tor Browser for Android 1.0a2
Tor Browser for Android 1.0a2 is now available from the Tor Browser Project page and also from our distribution directory.
This release features important security updates to Firefox. We picked up the necessary patches, but because we needed to start building before Mozilla was ready with a first candidate build, we did not bump the Firefox version to 60.2.2esr. Thus, users are fine with Tor Browser for Android 1.0a2 even though the Firefox version is 60.2.1esr.
Note, this release is only available for Android 4.1 and later running on an ARM processor (most phones and some tablets). If you have an Android device running on an Intel processor, then please wait for a future release when that will be supported.
We are also very happy to announce the Guardian Project, our long-time mobile partner, will provide Tor Browser for Android on their F-Droid repository. If you would prefer installing the app from F-Droid, please follow these steps:
- Install the F-Droid app on your Android device from the website
- After installing F-Droid, open the app
- At the lower-right-hand corner, open "Settings"
- Under the "My Apps" section, open Repositories
- Toggle "Guardian Project Official Releases" as enabled
- Now F-Droid downloads the list of apps from the Guardian Project's repository (Note: this may take a few minutes)
- Tap the Back button at the upper-left-hand corner
- Open "Latest" at the lower-left-hand corner
- Open the search screen by tapping the magnifying glass at the lower-right side
- Search for "Tor Browser for Android (Alpha)"
- Open the query result by "The Tor Project" and install
The full changelog since Tor Browser for Android 1.0a1 is:
- Update Firefox to 60.2.1esr
- Backport fix for Mozilla bug 1493900 and 1493903

Thank you Torproject team…
Thank you Torproject team. Good improvement, though here in Uganda we do have issues with the internet speeds. It may not favour so much someone who wants to stream but with other content opening it's great. Looking forward for more improvement so that we can fully embrace it and ignore other browsers for safety, privacy and censorship.

you ca stream without problem, go and get up a relay running in or near Uganda as guard or using it as a bridge will help yourself
When you close Tor Browser…
When you close Tor Browser for Android 1.0a2 and reopen it, old visited sites reload. ( maybe last open tabs? )
This is a privacy risk and a serious risk in some circumstances.

Bug: sadly the copy/paste function does not work in this browser :( file downloads with alpha browser not finish. else it is very good
An important thing to note…
An important thing to note between the Darkweb an the Deepweb is that the darkweb is the illegal section, and it is NOT 400 times larger than the surface web. The deep web is only 400 times larger because it contains dynamically-generated webpages also. For example, the profile settings page on your facebook or twitter? That is deep web. Because that web page is only catered to you, it is dynamically created when you access it, and when you leave it, it will disappear (hence why it is so hard to determine the size of the deepnet). Remember, the darknet and the deepnet are NOT interchangeable terms, because the deepweb is mostly filled with dynamic pages catered to their users.
