     16--------------------------------------------

     18Mozilla, makers of the Firefox browser upon which Tor Browser is based,
     19announced [XXX] a series of projects to “accelerate pragmatic and
     20user-focused advances in privacy technology for the Web, giving users
     21more control, awareness and protection in their Web experiences”. The
     22Tor Project is one of Mozilla’s two partners in this Polaris Privacy
     23Initiative, and the collaboration will involve looking at the Firefox
     24codebase to see if its relationship to Tor Browser and the Tor
     25development process can be made more efficient, giving Tor engineers
     26more time to focus on other important issues. Mozilla also stated their
     27intention to run several high-capacity Tor middle relays, contributing
     28to a faster and more stable Tor network.

     30As Andrew Lewman wrote on the Tor blog, “the Tor Browser is one of the
     31best ways to protect privacy on the web and this partnership is a huge
     32step in advancing people’s right to freedom of expression online”. Watch
     33for more announcements as work on these two fronts continues.
