Software update: Tor Browser 7.5.4

 

 Tor Browser Bundle logo (75 pix) Version 7.5.4 of Tor Browser has been released. Tor stands for The Onion Router and is a network that can be used to surf anonymously over the internet. All user tcp traffic is routed along several Tor routers, after which it is virtually impossible for the recipient to verify who the original sender was. This information is still present within the Tor network, so that answers, of course again via the routers system, ultimately arrive at the right place. The release notes for this release are as follows:
