The Tor network team spent the last 12 months working to improve network scalability and accessibility.

- Reduced module complexity and maintenance burden;
- Developed new architecture for several key Tor modules;
- Implemented better tooling;
- Improved testing for several key Tor modules; and
- Improved our documentation.

All this work couldn’t have happened without the support of many teams at Tor and anonymous volunteer cypherpunks. Thank you.


Privacy should be the default.

Your online behavior can reveal your identity, fears, relationships, and vulnerabilities. Sharing something about yourself should be your choice.

#TakeBacktheInternet with us:

"Privacy is a fundamental human right. It has no price tag. No person should be coerced or encouraged to barter it away."

+ I'm old enough to remember the Web of the 1990s/ 2000s.
It was a maze. You followed hypertext links, stumbled into forums and early troll-caves, used Slashdot and GoTo, experimented with LiveJournal and Blogger.

It wasn't safe, it was filled with weirdness, appealed heavily to geeks and loners. Being on the web in that era was a serious trip.

But it wasn't corporate. It wasn't the tool of major governments, yet. It was defiantly decentralised, and when you were online...

... you felt free.
