"If you started having issues with your Tor Browser after an update, check

"These services use the special-use tld .onion (instead of "

"A cryptographic signature proves the authenticity of a message or file. It 
is created by the holder of the private portion of a [public key 
cryptography](#public-key-cryptography) key pair and can be verified by the 
corresponding public key. If you download software from torproject.org, you 
will find it as sig files (.asc). These are PGP signatures, so you can 
verify that the file you have downloaded is exactly the one that we intended
 you to get. For more information about how you can verify signatures, 
please see https://www.torproject.org/docs/verifying-signatures.html.en."

sig files --> signature files

"We feel that talking openly about our funders and funding model is the best "
"way to maintain trust with our community."
