We also added patches for regular Pinebook and PineTab support to it, so its gonna be a huge one for us.

NEW: Meet the Tor Community portal!

Tor's Community portal is home to info and resources for you, the people who make Tor possible.

What used to be buried, scattered across our website, and outdated is now organized, refreshed, and easy to use.

Let's say that you are a big organization and you are going to name your new cool cross platform UI framework.

The chosen name conflicts with another open source framework for the same purpose.

2. You did, you found it, and said "who cares?"
