Description

The sandboxed-tor-browser UI/UX is something that was done by someone that is not a UI/UX person, and it shows. There is tons of room for improvement, and this is the catch-all for tracking such things.

Off the top of my head:

  • Allow the ability to localize it. (https://github.com/nicksnyder/go-i18n looks promising).
  • Use a progress bar instead of a spinner for the progressDialog.
  • Add an About dialog somewhere so that it's easy to query version information, without resorting to the command line (--version).
  • Improve the appearance of the error dialog, provide access to the log when convenient (rather than the console, or a log file).

Where does this fit in the work ongoing in the tor-launcher UI? https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/doc/TorLauncherUX2016

Should the two configuration options from the sandbox be worked into the new UI? How do you see this going forward?

Lowering the priority on UI/UX related tasks. The entire UI code needs to be taken out back behind a shed and shot, and not incrementally added to.
