Description

When custom list of bridges is used at startup tor connects to all of them and then selects a random bridge. I find this approach to be less secure than just randomly selecting a bridge and connecting to it, without pre-testing of all bridges, and then select another if previous is unreachable. It's better to have a config option to control this.
