Description

Does it need to exist still?

We have people translating it but I think nothing points to it.

Unless it's around to handle old links that pointed to https://www.torproject.org/download-easy -- but in that case, there's no redirect so it wouldn't work.

https://xpertunisia.wordpress.com/opegypt/ links to it externally. And a few others. So if we do end up removing it, we should consider putting in a redirect.

I want it translated, because I want it to be the default download page. By default, pushing people to TBBs will keep them safer. That's why it's still there.

Summary: what links to https://www.torproject.org/download/download-easy ?make download-easy the default download page

Ok. What remains before we can make it the default download page, then?

For example, are we waiting for TBB to work well on all platforms?

I tried this for a weekend and many people in #tor-dev freaked out about it. We'd like tor browser bundles to be -stable before we can push them as the default downloads. Once this occurs, I'm planning to switch the page.

In a sample of semi-technical activists last week, all of them preferred the download-easy page to the current download page.

Looks like TBB is stable, especially with the new 0.2.2 Tor stable.

I wonder if it's time?
