A modern web browser which helps circumvent censorship

A review of PirateBrowser by Sven Sørensen

PirateBrowser is an Internet browser based on a portable version of Firefix with support for the Tor Network, though not a replacement for the Tor Browser Bundle.

When starting this program, the browser will automatically attempt to make a connection to the Tor Network which will allow you to browse the web anonymously. Its main goal is to provide users access to many of the file-sharing web sites which are blocked in some European countries either at the ISP-level or nationally.

After a connection has been established to the Tor Network, you will automatically be directed to the default homepage which is currently The Pirate Bay.

Once you've overlooked some of the privacy features of PirateBrowser, you might realize that the rest just some preloaded pirate-related bookmarks and a Tor client.

PirateBrowser can hide your true IP address and circumvent state censorship.
