Description

http://tor.eff.org/cvs/tor/doc/tor-doc-osx.html
states:
"You do not need to configure Privoxy to use Tor. A custom Privoxy configuration for Tor has been installed as part of the installer package."

but
http://tor.eff.org/cvs/tor/doc/tor-doc.html
states:
"Add the line
forward-socks4a / localhost:9050 .
(don't forget the dot) to privoxy's config file (you can just add it to the top)."

These two statements seem contradictory. Many potential Tor/Privoxy users would be unsure about whether to add the line or not. Also, many potential Tor/Privoxy users would not know where to find Privoxy's config file, which one to edit, or how to edit it.

If you're installing Tor on OSX, tor-doc-osx.html is the page you should follow. tor-doc.html is more general.

Hopefully I made this more clear in tor-doc now. Thanks for letting us know.
