  • started shipping tbb in 2008
  • torbutton as separate software is too difficult to maintain, see mike's blogpost
    • combined tbb and torbutton
    • faster releases from mozilla makes torbutton harder to maintain
  • mikeperry's mom succesfully found and installed torbrowser bundle on mac
  • roadmap question
    • scenario one is browser vendors ignore us, we need to build
    • the torbrowser, this is browser, tor, torbutton, etc.
  • scenario two is one or more browser vendors pay attention to us and
  • include torbrowser functionality into private browsing mode or let
  • us create an extension to private browser bundle
  • scenario three is
  • most of mike's work on torbutton is with toggle/state protections, removing this work frees up lots of time
  • simplified UI for users, not relays/bridges.
  • make the client-focus bundles more client friendly
  • make the relay-focus bundles more relay operator friendly
  • do we need a subset of vidalia for simplified client UI?
  • getting thandy working, saving state somehow, move aside or update binaries.
  • sandbox technology to safely protect users and run flash?
  • virtualization of tbb?
  • torbutton removed from addons.mozilla.org
  • naming of packages, push clients to torbrowser bundle, push everyone else to server bundles.
  • mike needs to write a new torbutton design doc.
  • simplified download page, broken into client, relay, expert sections
    • client section is tbb, relay is non-exit, exit, bridge-by default bundles
  • a quick doc aimed at developers to allow them to test their tor binaries with the existing packages.
  • a safe way to re-enable system wide plugins to make it easier to 'click-to-play' plugins.
  • can we configure firefox to only allow certain plugins to run, if found on the system.
  • if clients are more client-focused, how do we do automatic promotion to relays/bridges?
  • how many questions do we ask the user on first run of tbb or install of non-tbb?
  • tradeoffs of flexibility vs. protection of user info. how do we make the next steps and decisions?
