Description

Many IOS users have a hard time finding an "IOS Torbrowser" that TorProject recommends, this can be seen by the many questions that are asked on TorProject's twitter on how to download TorBrowser for IOS. It would be great if A link is added to the redesigned TorProject download page that directs users to Mike Tigas's OnionBrowser. This would also reduce the number of IOS users that accidentally download a NON-recommended "IOS Torbrowser" like "Red Browser".

A disclaimer could be added under the link to the OnionBrowser app saying, "This app is recommend by TorProject but it is not directly developed by TorProject nor directly funded by TorProject".

The support.torproject.org seems like a better place.

Replying to cypherpunks:

The support.torproject.org seems like a better place.

I think it would be easiest to find if it is side by side with all the other Tor browser versions on torproject.org/downloads , so that the users do not have to search through the support FAQ.

But OnionBrowser has nothing to do with the Tor Browser, i.e. it doesn't have the same level of fingerprinting resistance also it leaks leaks leaks more than wikileaks, so putting it side by side with other Tor Browser builds is misleading I think to the visitors.

A disclaimer/warning can be added so that user fully understands the possible risk.

I'd link here. It describes the problem with IOS quite well.

Do we want to consider this for the new website? Otherwise we should close as wontfix
