Description

I noticed that in the 'bridges' section on the website, the recommended default pluggable transport still was obfs3. While elsewhere obfs4 is the recommended PT. I guess it's quite minor, but I'd think people get a bit jittery when they are presented with slightly off information about what obfuscation technique they should actually be using to protect against inspection of their anonymous connection.

So I made a commit (and branch) to remedy this:
https://github.com/stuij/tor-site/commit/ad38186eceabd733efd67d60485aed9da22e3f99

Pull if you think it's worth the trouble (and I didn't mildly or wholly misunderstood something).

Also, I noticed that the 'pluggable transport page' on trac suffered from the same affliction. I updated it slightly where it matters. There's also a section on composing pluggable transports where obfs3 is used, but I didn't dare touch that bit, as the whole section looks a bit outdated:

The paragraph you edited, which I since reverted, is supposed to mention obfs2 and obfs3 because it's discussing features/capabilities.
