On Desktop, we don't have any suggested sites. Orfox currently shows:

  • Check
  • tp.o
  • Facebook Onion

I'm hesitant about us being in the position of promoting some sites (and specifically onion sites) over others. However, if we keep Facebook here, then maybe we should add/replace others. NYT? ProPublica? It's easy for us to start down this path, but I'm not sure we'll like where this will take us. That being said, this is the easiest way we can promote using onion sites over internet TLDs, especially on mobile.

Firefox on Android current shows:

  • Facebook
  • Youtube
  • Amazon
  • Wikimedia
  • Twitter

Note, this is different from about:tor. These sites are shown when the user clicks on the URL bar.

We need better thumbnails for and tp.o, too. I think we can steal the onion favicons (or whatever we use on the new website). In reality, we need higher resolution images than favicons, but we can tackle one problem at a time, if that's easier.
