Tor Privacy Browser Now Available for Android
The Tor web browser is now available for Android phones. Tor provides complete privacy and anonymity using "onion routing", which routes traffic through multiple servers to mask its source, and encrypts it each step of the way. The Tor browser interface is based on the familiar Firefox browser. It also provides protections against cross-site tracking and fingerprinting. The Android version has been in alpha since September, but just became available in a final, stable release. It's available now from the Play Store.
