Description

I've needed to go through the Tor Browser installation process several times, on mostly Ubuntu machines.

Instead of navigating to the website from Firefox, downloading the tarball in /download, and extracting it with the Archive Manager, it would be so much simpler to do something like this from the terminal:

wget https://www.torproject.org/dist/torbrowser/latest/tor-browser_en-US.tar.xz -O - | tar xz

This is not possible right now, because the URL for the latest Tor Browser on the website is tied to a specific version. If the Tor installation is added to a script, the script will be outdated as soon as a new version comes out.

Could we create a permanent URL for the latest stable version of Tor Browser? Since installing variants of Tor Browser via package managers is discouraged, it would be nice to make a scripted installation process a bit simpler.
