Another Firefox "emergency" update...................please stand by while we test the emergency broadcasting network..................... ... ................
...................... ..........................

As we all know, cybersecurity is a completely f-d up mess, which endangers everyone. And as we all agree, it is frustrating that no quick solution is in sight. But presumably we would also all agree that TP cannot fail to issue emergency patches when emergencies arise which a patch can ameliorate.

in Russia banned VPN, Tor, anonymizers.Under the law potentially all proxy and VPN-services, as well as anonymous networks Tor, I2P and Freenet, fall. Their owners are invited to restrict access to sites that are on the roster of prohibited websites of Roskomnadzor.To track anonymizers, Tor and VPN-services that provide access to blocked sites in Russia, there will be FSB officers and police.

Not sure whether you are talking about phone calls in RU or USA, but you have a point, that coopting Internet or Tor/Signal in acting as sting operations might be worse than banning them entirely.

Net neutrality ends today in the U.S. I've known about Tor Browser for a few years, and I'm aware it's effective with bypassing firewalls. It seems more likely however, that ISPs would throttle traffic.
My question is: Will Tor Browser make throttled websites load any faster?

Good question. I don't think anyone yet knows how this will play out, not even the FCC b-ds who killed NN, not the ISPs, not the EFF, nobody. We'll just have to see.

Several US states are seeking to rush onto the books their own net neutrality laws. WA state got there first, just ahead of FCC's action, so arguably NN is still the law of the land in one US state. That might not seem to matter much, except that Amazon hosts many sites and I think those servers might be subject to WA law, at least in principle. FCC will doubtless challenge state laws and the whole mess will surely eventually wind up in the lap of the seriously flawed SCOTUS gods.

I don't think the individual's speed will be throttled...it'll be the websites that are throttled if they don't pay for faster service. That means sites who are already running on a shoe string won't be able to compete with those that have more resources. If you visit sites that can't pay for the faster speed, it's likely that your connection/user experience will be slow or maybe non-existent. At any rate, it's not a good thing. I'm not certain if the Tor Project will be one of those sites.

It is important : my openic dns seem block this website (for commenting only).
The team of Tor should contact openic for a better compatibility && it is not because they pass the test that they are working properly configured or allowing a comment using 'cookie' only.
