Description

I use TBB for my daily work. It works pretty well so far. One feature I am missing is to be able to switch off the usage of the tor network for specific websites.

Example A: I am in a local intranet with a couple of webservers I have to use frequently. In order to access these webservers I have to use beside TBB a second Firefox browser to access the local intranet, because traffic routed through the tor network does not find is way back to my intranet.

Example B: I need to access websites with an IP filter, that allows only traffic from specific IP addresses.

It would be very handy to have the ability to switch TBB to a non-tor mode. There are different ways to do this:

  • setting the domain of my local intranet in TBB so traffic to any site with the local domain would not go trough the Tor notwork
  • defining a list of websites I want to view without tor. Perhaps by adding a specific keyword like "non-tor" to a link in my bookmarks, that switches the tor mode off.

It would be great to have such functionality.

Thanks & regards,

Torland

If it is a browser, it must support that.
