    4 This document explains how to configure a particular application for use with Tor and thus the Tor network. As Tor constantly evolves, the knowledge and understanding about anonymity online also evolves. Implementations and other aspects of online anonymity become more and more complex. In the past, an end user would just go ahead and "torify" applications like Mozilla Firefox - this is no longer recommend. As we learned more on the subject and implementation of online anonymity, we discovered it was increasingly easy for a user to leak sensitive information to those interested in obtaining it. We will be describing more details on such matters further into this article.

    66In short, do not torify any applications yourself unless you know exactly what you are doing. If, however, you wish to study the complexities surrounding the subject, then please feel free to indulge your self and even go as far as providing new instructions or implementations. In the mean time, see this article more as a reference for developers and advanced users. If you don't fall into one of these two categories then for your own security, stick with the Tor Browser Bundle from https://www.torproject.org.
